Camp builds life skills

A global children’s organisation camp named Kids Care Club is opening in the Cayman Islands this summer.  

Nathina Ebanks, camp director, said that Kids Care Club is a perfect blend of education, sports and fun. “Regardless of age, campers are exposed to new experiences that help develop and challenge each child,” Ms Ebanks said. 

During the camp, children will spend most of their time outdoors, so it is advised for them to wear a hat to camp. Children will be taking part in a variety of activities, sports, movies, games as well as arts and crafts. There will also be a talent show.  

The camp is flexible and children may bring handheld games and activities to share. Parents are also welcome to pack extra snacks and refreshments. 

“We focus on building life skills such as friendship skills, character, fun, intellect, athletic, creativity, and most important fun,” Ms Ebanks said.  

The camp’s main focus is to encourage campers by way of focusing on your children’s assets and strengths, she said. “In order to build their self-confidence and feelings of worth, when we give a child encouragement, we are saying to keep trying, keep up with the progress, and to celebrate the journey, not just the victory,” she said.  

Ms Ebanks said many parents remarked the camp was a success last year and it helped to change their children’s lives for the better. 

“These positive feedbacks from campers and parents each summer ignited the passion for creating cutting-edge educational summer camp,” she said.  

At the end of summer camp there will be a “Back to School Fun Day Fair”.  

The camp runs from 2-20 July. The cost is $50 per week. Ages 5- 12.
