This is home: Six years since Syria Crisis began

Canadian Red Cross

A weekend escape

"This is home."

In October 2016, the Canadian Red Cross helped bring a group of Syrian refugee teenagers to the Tim Horton Children's Camp in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia. The camping weekend was a unique and rewarding escape for 90 newcomers to this country. It was their chance to learn more about becoming Canadians while at the same time celebrating their own Syrian culture and heritage.

It was a weekend they’ll never forget.
