Focusing on hurricane preparedness, Mrs. Obi engaged the campers in role playing to show the youngsters how they could help to prepare for disasters.

Government Information Services and the Red Cross joined efforts earlier this summer to bring disaster preparedness activities to campers.

The first visit, to a netball camp at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex, took place 10 July, while the last is scheduled for 26 August.

Participating camps include the Art of Fun camp at King’s Sports Centre; the Cadet Corps Residential Camp; Fearless Factor Camp; and FC International’s Cayman Brac Football Camp.
