Over 200 kids to attend annual police youth camp
Over 200 children will attend the Guyana Police Force’s Annual Youth Camp which is being held in collaboration with the Guyana Police Wives’ Association, between Monday August 6 and Saturday August 11, at the Rosignol Primary School, West Coast Berbice.
The children, between the ages of eight and 14 years old, selected from among youths involved in the Force’s Youth Clubs and Scout Groups, will be participating in the much anticipated Camp, which is being conducted under the theme “Empowering Young Minds for the next Generation”.
The Camp will be managed by Assistant Commissioner Carol Lewis-Primo, who will be assisted by other police ranks, members of the Police Wives’ Association and a number of civilians who have volunteered their services.
During the period, the campers will be involved in craft-work, educational talks, road safety, religious teaching, information technology, games and an exhibition to showcase their skills learnt, among other activities.
The first Police Youth Camp was held at Camp Seweyo, Soesdyke/Linden Highway, in 1991.
Last year’s camp was at the Linden Foundation Secondary School in Amelia’s Ward, Linden.
