Inspired by Queen of Sheba’s offering of peace to King Solomon, The World Peace Caravan is both symbolic of peace as well as a call for people from all over the world to come together to develop a greater understanding and respect for one another. This amazing experience includes cultural, historical, educational and entertainment events that will be sure to create memories that last a lifetime. The caravan begins on December 15, 2015 in Petra, Jordan and concludes 12 days later in Jerusalem. Come join us for all or part of this extraordinary world peace mission!
A Modern Journey of Peace
Over 3,000 years ago, the Queen of Sheba led a 750 camel caravan over the Ancient Frankincense Trail to carry her peace offerings on her ships of the desert to King Solomon in Jerusalem. On a grand quest for peace today, the WORLD PEACE CARAVAN invites the castle-builders and peace advocates of the world to come together in December 2015 for a 12-day caravan that will retrace the steps of this legendary early peace movement.
People of all faiths, cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds are invited to join the caravan by camel, horse, or foot for a unique multi-cultural experience on the storied Frankincense Trail that demonstrates and promotes peace, harmony, compassion, and a greater understanding of one another.
Because the next generation of leaders- our youth- is critical for our chances of finding peace in our time, the world peace caravan will provide a forum for today’s youth to express their vision of world peace, become a part of the world peace process, and help prepare them to lead their vision. Twelve youths, ages 16-24, will be selected from a global pool of candidates for their bold vision and talents to spearhead the caravan as the world peace youth delegation.
Beginning in Petra, Jordan on December 15, 2015 and ending in Jerusalem on December 26, the WORLD PEACE CARAVAN will be anchored by two landmark events, the WORLD PEACE AND HEALTH CONFERENCE and the WORLD PEACE CONCERT.
On December 21, the caravan will stop for the two-day WORLD PEACE AND HEALTH CONFERENCE on the Dead Sea in Jordan- a high-level, interactive conference of invited international peace advocates with a focus on health, education, and the role of women in peacemaking. The WORLD PEACE YOUTH DELEGATION will share their ideas for sustainable peace and discuss their practical applications with the world’s leading experts at the conference.
On December 26, the blockbuster WORLD PEACE CONCERT will close the WORLD PEACE CARAVAN with performances by world-renowned musicians in Jerusalem.
World Peace Caravan highlights include:
- Uniting people from around the world in an opportunity to travel, share meals and learn together on a camel caravan designed to challenge them physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Daily educational, historical and cultural activities will be provided.

World Peace Caravan to Arrive in
Bethlehem on December 25, 2015
New travel dates align with founder’s original vision
Lehi, UT, October 11, 2013—D. Gary Young, the World Peace Caravan founder and CEO of Young Living Essential Oils, has announced a new departure date for the World Peace Caravan. Originally scheduled to depart in March of 2014, the peace mission will now begin on December 15, 2015, and finish on December 26, 2015. It will symbolically arrive in Bethlehem on December 25at the Bethlehem Peace Center with a peace walk to Jerusalem on December 26 followed by a grand Wrap Up Celebration.
Jay Anderton, Director of the World Peace Caravan, commented, “The unrest in Syria had many people closely involved with the mission uncomfortable with the March 2014 travel date. There was an undeniable energy in the group that the dates and the year were just not right. The Board of Advisers and team members have embraced the new dates because they align with Gary Young’s original vision of the caravan arriving in Bethlehem on December 25. ”
