Peace Camp is a program developed and operated by students from the University of Waterloo in Peace and Conflict Studies Program.
They visit schools and run summer camp programs focusing on how students can successfully deal with conflict, to achieve peace in their own lives, and use those skills to help others find peaceful solutions to conflict they may be experiencing.
The first activity the students were tasked with today, was to be in groups. Half of the group was the "EYES". The EYES could see and read the instruction sheet and could communicate with gestures to the "HANDS" group but was unable to actually touch any of the construction materials. The "HANDS" group was tasked with constructing their structure, without knowing what it was, or being given any verbal instructions.... sounds challenging doesn't it? Well, it was... :) Check out some of the photos below of their progress and let us know what you think!
