Peace Camp brings youth together for a common cause

Thursday, August 9, 2012

The second-annual Conrad Grebel Peace Camp has just finished another action-packed week with more speakers, field trips and activities connecting youth to neighbourhoods across Waterloo region. This summer, which brought together young people from all over the tri-cities, involved such exciting projects as making recyclable monsters, fashioning a trash bag slip ‘n slide and helping cultivate a community garden and a mural at the Working Centre and Sunnydale Community Centre, respectively.

Youth were also excited to connect to young people who are working to make a difference despite great obstacles they face. Camp speakers included a uWaterloo student who has brain cancer, skydives and participates in runs to raise money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation and an individual living with HIV/AIDS who is working to help other people with this medical condition. All in all, a fantastic week at Grebel, where youth played to change and made peace happen all the region.
