Where Will You Take Your Child This Summer?
Summer vacation is upon us and parents are looking for educational options for their children over the nine week holiday. There are several options available. Some options are whole-day and some half-day. There are opportunities to do sports, science and even some volunteering. Take a look at the list below and see what you will be doing with your child this summer.
Let us start with my personal favourite, volunteering! The RSPCA welcomes volunteers (from age 11 and up) during the summer vacation from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.. If you are interested in your child having this worthwhile experience, please call 426-3077.
National Summer Camp
The Ministry of Culture, Sports & Youth offers its annual summer camp option from July 14 – August 15, 2014. Those who are interested may collect registration forms from the schools listed in the file below or at the National Camps Registration Centre, Division of Youth, Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall, St. Michael. Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. For more information you may call 621-2700.
As one can see, there are specialised camps as well for campers who are 13 – 15 years old; an entrepreneurial camp sponsored by the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme; a camp for children with special needs and a Science & Technology camp. The latter camp runs from July 14 – August 22, 2014. See above file for contact information.
A camp which was not aforementioned is an Information Technology Camp. This is for children who are aged 14 – 18. The programme, also known as ITS for Teens, runs from July 21 – August 29, 2014 at various resource centres nationwide. For more information contact the Community Development Department at 310-1700 or 310-1708.
