Also present were Phedra Rahming, Permanent Secretary and Patricia Francis, Deputy Permanent Secretary.

    Pastor Vaughn Miller, Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Social Services and Urban Development, said the camps were designed to give the children something constructive to do.

    Minister Rolle assured the campers that they their experience will be filled with lots of fun. She said in addition to Math and Reading lessons, the camp will focus on character building, discipline, respect and reverence for God. She encouraged the children to participate and to become involved in the activities that will be offered to them.
