Throughout the week of August 8, 31 youth across the Waterloo Region ages 11-14 gathered at Conrad Grebel University College for Peace Camp. The Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement’s fifth annual day camp was once again packed with exciting activities with a peace and social justice spin to encourage youth to inspire lives, strengthen ties, and make peace happen in Waterloo Region.

Creating meaningful, community-driven experiences at Peace Camp

Thirty-three excited young campers participated in last week’s Peace Camp at Conrad Grebel University College.

Youth ages 11 to 13 were busy making confetti paper mache bowls, playing games, and making new friends of different ages, ethnicities, and religions. On top of the array of activities, campers learned how to create peaceful changes in our community from several community members, including Elle Crevits of Food Not Waste, Brad Golding of Homelessness Everywhere Lacking Publicity, and Stephen Svenson of Patchwork Community Gardens. Under this year’s theme, Ripple Effect, Peace Campers were educated on how their actions, no matter how small, have the ability to create big impact.
