National Trust summer camp

The
annual Discovery Summer Camp, organised by the National Trust for the Cayman
Islands, will be taking place in July. The camp is built around the Trust’s
mission of preserving natural environments and places of historic significance
in the Cayman Islands for present and future generations.

Participants
in the camp will learn more about Cayman’s unique natural environment including
learning more about sea creatures that inhabit the waters off Cayman, exploring
the mangroves and discovering species unique to Cayman. They will also learn
more about Cayman’s culture and built heritage through playing traditional
games, learning local crafts and learning more about traditional Caymanian
homes.

The
National Trust Discovery Summer Camp is designed to encourage children to have
a greater respect for and knowledge of the environment and cultural traditions
in order to bring about a generation of individuals dedicated to preserving the
beauty of the Cayman Islands.

Discovery
Summer Camp will take place from 6 July to 30 July, 9am to 5pm at the National
Trust Visitors Centre as well as a number of off-site locations. The cost per
week is $225 for members and $250 for non-members, while the week of 6 to 9
July will cost $180 for members and $200 for non-members.
