National Summer Camps 2019 are on!
The Ministry of Youth and Community Empowerment will host the 2019 National Summer Camps programme at 32 venues from July 15 to August 16, 2019. Camp registration is now open and forms can be collected from primary schools, download or fill out online and at the Ministry of Youth and Community Empowerment, Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall, St. Michael.
The Ministry is also inviting persons 16 years and over to volunteer as Camp Assistants for the 2019 National Summer Camps. Persons may apply online.
Following a break for review in 2018, the programme has been remodelled to include more community-based programming, engaging the specialized skills, talents and experiences of volunteers within our communities. The Youth Development Programme in the Division of Youth will take lead on the 2019 programme and Youth Commissioners will be actively engaged in the management of the camps. The National Summer Camps is a multi-experience programme, where campers and volunteers will access a wonderful opportunity to hone skills, build new capacities and have fun in a safe structured environment during the five week programme.
