Bernews: BNT Offers Free Half-Term Camp Spaces
The Bermuda National Trust invites applications for free places on its Climate Change Agents camp over the Government school half term break from 13-17 February.
A spokesperson said, ” The fully sponsored camp for children aged 11-14 will be held at the Trust’s headquarters, Waterville, 2 Pomander Road.”
“We are pleased to offer 12 free places at this camp for children of families in financial need, thanks to sponsorship from the Garden Club of Bermuda and a number of other businesses and individuals,” said Anna Stevenson, Heritage Education Coordinator.
The spokesperson said, “The application process is very simple. The form can be found on the BNT website bnt.bm. It should be accompanied by a short paragraph from the child saying why they would like to attend the camp, and a letter of recommendation from a teacher. Applications should be submitted by 8 February.
“Campers will spend the week exploring the causes and impact of climate change, learn about renewable energies from wind farms to solar power, and they will build and use solar ovens. They will visit Grape Bay to clear up ocean plastics with KBB and use ocean plastics to create awareness posters. The children will explore the importance of mangroves and map their location at Waterville. With a theme of Grow Your Own, children will finish the week learning about seasonal crop growth, planting their own seedlings, and make bread by hand.”
