Urban Renewal’s Successful Summer Camp

Urban Renewal’s month long summer camp was a success and ended with a closing ceremony on Friday. 

Campers, who attended the camp either in Bain and Grants Town, Centreville, Fort Charlotte, Englerston, Flamingo Gardens, Free Town, Nassau Village and Pinewood, gathered at the Loyola Hall to showcase the work they completed over several weeks.  

According to the Permanent Secretary responsible for Urban Renewal David Cates, this year was the largest and the best so far.

In attendance was Minister of Social Services and Urban Development Frankie Campbell, who empowered the campers.

“The government sees this as an investment and only asking you to grasp as much as you can, follow as many of the instructions as you can, learn as much as you can, treat each other as well as you can, look out for each as much as you can. And in doing so, you would have obeyed the golden rules and you would have made the Bahamas a better place and the government of the Bahamas would have received a return on its investments,” Campbell said.  

Also in attendance was Fort Charlotte MP Mark Humes, who provided support for his camp and administrators.

“In some ways, we’re on the way out and eventually the country will have to be turned over to you. Our job is to mentor and prepare the next generation,” Humes said.   

Crafts made by campers were on sale. As a reward and encouragement, all participants of the camp were given free school supplies to prepare for the upcoming school year.
