Boys Home camp coming

This weekend is slated to see the last camp by FC International.

The football organization is slated to host a one-day football camp at the Bonaventure Home in West Bay.

Action is expected to get under way from 9am to 1pm on Saturday.

FC Intl technical director Elbert McLean and star football son Charlo McLean will lead the camp.

It must be noted the camp could be postponed by heavy rainfall that has recently hit Cayman.

The Bonaventure camp is the latest and newest offering in the annual line-up of FC Intl camps.

From George Town to Bodden Town and Cayman Brac the group has gone all over the Cayman Islands aiming to spread football and important life lessons.

The group even made time for a special needs camp at the Lighthouse school (which was scheduled for last weekend).

As has been the staple over the years the camp sees a pair of guest speakers in national football coach Carl Brown and teacher and motivational speaker Benedict John.

McLean stated previously in this paper that he was looking forward to working with the kids from the Bonaventure Home.

In addition he said he had successfully worked with those kids in the past as two of the players on his Bodden Town U15 team were from the facility.

He went on to say the camp is part of FC International’s mission of providing a new type of camp every year.

Meanwhile FC Intl general manager Fred Ebanks felt the camp was a great way to include troubled youth in society.

He also said that the camp might reveal a football hidden talent as he feels skilled players are hidden all over Cayman.

FC Intl President Kennedy Ebanks gave a message to the Cayman people that centred on setting a positive example for kids and giving the youth hope.
