Excitement is building as the eagerly anticipated Chicky’s Summer Fun camp, hosting more than 100 children, including scores of KFC Club Chicky members, begans seven weeks of non-stop fun, tours, games, skills training and more, today.
Following rave reviews from last year’s happy campers, there has been a high demand for places in this second annual camp sponsored by KFC’s Club Chicky in association with the Wee Care Nursery & Pre School in Belleville, St. Michael.
Coordinator Gail Davis said learning activities for campers ages 4 to 11 would focus on the topic “Our Caribbean Neighbours”, while the children would also enjoy weekly tours under themes that include: Under the Sea; Flora and Fauna; and Over and Under the Earth.
Davis said campers would be catered to by 25 fully qualified counsellors in addition to special guests coming in for activities such as life skills training, and steel pan instruction.
“The children had a great time last year, and they have obviously told their friends; so this year we have a lot of repeat campers and demand for new places has been very high. This is our second year hosting the camp in association with KFC’s Club Chicky and it has been a successful and very enjoyable partnership, especially for the children.”
KFC’s Marketing Coordinator, Shekelia Barrow, echoed Davis’ sentiments, noting that the Chicky’s Summer Fun camp concept fit perfectly with KFC’s mission of delivering a “so good” summer experience to the children.
“KFC is proud to be associated with Wee Care Nursery & Pre School in hosting this second Chicky’s Summer Fun camp,” Barrow said. “The children really had a wonderful time last year, and so we are not at all surprised at how excited they are to participate once again.”
Activities for the Chicky’s Summer Fun camp will also include educational sessions, swimming, outdoor sports, zumba, art and craft, baking, weaving, self-defence, team-building, and camp Kadooment Day, while children arriving early would be rewarded with gaming sessions.
