Description of the camp
Crossroads re-Imagined Camp takes place from Friday 15th July until Sunday 24th July 2022 at the village of Kampos in the district of Nicosia. It is implemented by the Association of Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR) and funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.
Crossroads re-Imagined Camp is designed for young people aged 14 - 17 years old and it aims to support the contact and cooperation between young people from all the communities in Cyprus by building mutual respect for each other, breaking down stereotypes and promoting reconciliation in the framework of a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence.
The camp’s core activities are designed and implemented by skilled and experienced educators, facilitators and visiting artists, based on a range of expressive arts and applied theatre approaches, peace education methodologies and non-formal education tools. Activities at camp include workshops on a variety of topics with the purpose of promoting meaningful communication and providing safe spaces for creative learning, democratic dialogue and mutual understanding and respect between young people. Crossroads re-Imagined Camp always concludes with a final piece of work developed by the young people and shared with family and friends, showcasing the 10-day long learning journey participants experienced together.
Crossroads re-Imagined Camp returns in 2022, with the recognition that safety and health should be a primary concern. For the protection of everyone involved, we have prepared a health protocol, which will be regularly updated, with full information about the precautions that will be taken. The CDC guidelines will be followed and all necessary measures will be taken to ensure safe participation of all in the camp activities.
