Fun while learning
campers do a number of educational activities at kamp khai-a bonga
After seven weeks of fun, Kamp Khai-A Bonga came to an end today.
During that time, the more than 30 campers, ranging in age from four to 11 years, and their counsellors, participated in art and craft, tae kwon do, went on picnics, tours to Chefette, L & N Workshop to see how buses and trucks were made, and other educational activities.
Camp Director Stephanie Mayers, told Barbados TODAY this was their second year and the aim was of the children to have fun while learning.
“We had programmes such as ‘everything girly’, including things like mad modelling. We had crazy hair day, the culinary arts where they did different things including cookies, outdoor sports, leggo world. We had a hose down day where the children came in their bathing suits, the boys in the trunks, they pelted water balloons at each other — there were a lot of activities,” she said.
The camp was held at Whitepark Wesleyan Holiness Tabernacle on Whitepark Road.
Yesterday there was an open day where the arts and craft of the children were displayed.
Mayers also noted that she had written a camp song which the youngsters enjoyed singing.
“Every where we go we sing it and it’s a very catchy jingle,” she added.
The final activity was a picnic today at King George V Memorial Park, St. Philip. (DS)
