There are many sports camps running this summer but not many for the special needs kids at the Lighthouse School.
That’s why FC International have organised a football one for them.
FC International’s summer camp starts on August 2 the Lighthouse School in Prospect.
FC International president Kennedy Ebanks is a long-time campaigner for worthy community projects like this.
He said: ‘This is our second year of doing this. We’re happy to do this. Unlike a lot of people who talk about it, we have come forward to help them.
‘At the Lighthouse School last year we had about 30 kids. They really enjoyed it and we enjoyed working with them.
‘The next time, for the first time in the Cayman Islands will be at the Fairbanks Prison. Nobody has ever done anything for them. There are about 20 of them right now.
‘We’re having a camp for them on August 9 for one day only. We’ve got to show that we care for the youths and maintain that.
‘FC International has been doing camps since 1994.’
Fred Ebanks is FC International general manager. He said: ‘The kids are the future of the island and we need to support them more. The kids are looking forward to the camps and so are we.’
Beckman Ebanks is a pupil at Lighthouse School. He said: ‘I really like football and play it a lot. My favourite player is David Beckham.’
Elbert McLean is the camp technical director. He can be reached on 925 7296.
