The three-week long camp was held under the theme: “Urban Adventurers Exploring Our Cultural Heritage”. Minister of Labour the Hon. Sen. Dion Foulkes who addressed the campers from the nine areas in New Providence noted that the 3,000 participants were the largest number in the camp’s history. Urban Renewal in Grand Bahama and the other Family Islands participated simultaneously making up the 3,000.
