Mesop Summer Camp kicks off

Posted: Monday, July 9, 2018. 10:19 am CST.

BBN Staff:  Today marks the start of the Mesopotamia Summer Camp being done through a collaboration with St. Ignatius Parish, the Girl Guides Association and the Belize Scouts Association.

The camp, catering to a maximum of 200 children, is geared towards engaging children in the community with positive activities for the next three weeks, with the final day being July 27.

The camp will feature a financial literacy component, done in collaboration with the St. John’s Credit Union, in which children will learn the importance of saving, budgeting, responsible borrowing, and spending. Participants will also learn about urban gardening, playing sports such as volleyball, and football, and engage in Bible study sessions.

Zenida Moya, president of the Girl Guides Association, said that the Bible study component is an important part of the camp because giving youths a strong moral foundation will positively impact the country’s crime situation later on.

Kirk Lanifesta, head of the 9th Belize St. Ignatius Scout Unit said the role of the Scouts Association in the camp is to “provide the kids with a positive alternative to all the negative that exists within their community and show them that they don’t have to engage in crime and violence.”

The camp is the brainchild of St. Ignatius Priest, Father Selvin Garcia, who said that he had been planning it for three years.
