Twenty people, including several candidates for the study visit to Poland, attended a two-day Leadership Workshop at Loon Lake Camp in Maple Ridge, BC. A formal activity program included:
- an introduction to Barka Canada and its work
- a presentation on migration stress by Dr. Maria Daszkiewicz (a psychiatrist)
- brainstorming sessions
There was plenty of opportunity for recreational activities including hiking, canoeing, and singing by the campfire. There was also time for the participants to chat, get to know each other, and exchange ideas.
