The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Program of Belize released a great video about their Summer Art Camp, which is for youth between the ages of 14 and 17.  It starts next Monday, June 8th, and MPR is the base for the camp, so the youths will experience nature in one of Belize’s nicest reserves.  There are a few spots left.  Rio On Pools is the star of the video that Help International put together.


“This camp is for youth ages 14 to 17 who want to tap into their inner artist and creative learning process.  All week long youth will be in the jungle, learning how to enhance their skills in painting, writing, cooking, and music. At night there will be campfires and games to build friendships and make memories that will last forever.  This is an incredible experience all for $200.  That includes your transportation there and back, your three meals for the day, accommodation, and supplies for classes.  If you are interested in joining us please let Nehanda Higinio know by cell phone at 624-9112 or email at and she will get you registered and signed up!”

There’s still time to submit essays for Chaa Creek’s Children’s Summer Camp Scholarship Program.  They have a short video out about the program.


“Every year we team up with a number of private sector businesses to offer a weeklong summer camp scholarship program for Belize’s resident school children between the ages of 8 to 13 years old in order to educate them about biodiversity, natural resource conservation, the ancient Maya, traditional healing, and the three “R’s” Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.  The program aims to install memorable values that will have an impact on the way children conduct their lives, their relationship with our fragile Earth, and the sustainable development of our future.”


In related news, they have another submission for the essay competition.
