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.


Circle of Life-Long Learning blends traditions of the past with generations of the future

Last week, the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre (WAEC) at the University of Waterloo’s St. Paul’s University College hosted its first ever Circle of Life-Long Learning interactive summer camp. The five-day program offered a fun and engaging learning experience for Aboriginal families - 13 youth and 8 caregivers - from across southwestern Ontario through a Higher Education Learning grant graciously provided by the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation.

Summer camps, the Waterloo way

The benefits that camps and enrichment programs have on the development of children are widely known.  Through our diverse year-round programing, the University of Waterloo strives to meet the needs of our community and have a positive impact in shaping the minds of tomorrow's leaders.
