The youngsters, accompanied by parents and CTA staff, toured the theatre hall and learned about Pedro St. James early settlers from tour guide Stacy Hurlston.

They heard how Pedro St. James became the birthplace of democracy in the Cayman Islands, how it burned when struck by lighten, and in later years when it was restored by the Cayman Islands government as a tourist attraction and historical landmark.

At the end of the tour the group enjoyed snacks, met Diego, a pirate and made paper kites.

In addition to the Pedro visit, CTA campers participated in nature walks, learned traditional games, visited Boatswain Beach and painted.
