| 10/06/2010

(CNS): Parents looking for ways to keep their kids entertained this summer and learn something more about preserving their natural and historical environment will find what they are looking for at this year’s National Trust Discovery Summer Camp programme. The Trust said the camp which runs throughout the month of July and is open to 7-12 year olds, is built around its mission to preserve the unique natural and built heritage of the Cayman Islands and will set tomorrow’s custodians of the country’s heritage off on the right foot .

“We have four exciting weeks planned with a variety of activities including learning about sea creatures, exploring sea grass beds and mangroves, learning about butterflies and nature, discovering species unique to the Cayman Islands, and recycling,” the Trust said. “We will play games from yesteryear, learn home crafts and discover the beautiful details of traditional Caymanian buildings. Our programme encourages respect for our environment and traditions and our need to be stewards to preserve our special place in the world.”
With the country’s historical and natural environment under growing threat this camp presents a perfect opportunity for kids to learn what they could do to stem the tide.
