August 13-17 the Museum on Grand Turk in collaboration with DECR hosted it’s annual Eco Camp for children. Kids ranging in ages from 9-14 enjoyed a week long camp that included a trip to Gibbs Cay, kayaking, learning to swim, learning about the history of the islands, marine life and what they can do to protect the environment.
The campers participated in crafts that included creating bags with environmental messages and recycled items they found in a beach clean up into jewelry and other gift ideas.
On the last day of camp everyone was awarded with a certificate of completion or a special gift for an individual accomplishment.
Many indicated that the Gibbs Trip was their favorite part of the camp but others enjoyed the swimming and the lunch provided daily!! They all departed on the last day excited to come back next year!!
Proceeds from the sales of Donna Seim’s book, Where’s Simon, Sandy? help to sponsor the children’s club summer camp.
A special thanks to Amy Avenant from DECR who led the camp and worked with the kids everyday. Also thanks to Grand Turk Divers, Oasis Divers, Jean Lightbourne, Rob Lightbourne, Ben Steubenberg and Katherine Hart. We had a great bunch of kids that had a great time thanks to your involvement and support!!
