SUMMER TIME FUN IN THE NELSONWednesday 20th June 2012
The National Parks Authority is in the midst of planning summer activities that will expose children to the history and beauty of the Nelson’s Dockyard and its environs.
As schools get ready to close for the end of term holidays, the NPA is opening the gates of the Nelson’s Dockyard to welcome children every day for a fun and learning experience.
As this is not a summer camp, children ten and under should be accompanied by their parents or a responsible adult. If children are part of a summer camp then the camp leader or representative must be in attendance.
Some of the summer camps were specially invited to the Dockyard to be a part of the activities. The NPA was invited to make a presentation to the camps which was well received by the camp leaders who were in attendance.
Every day, the Park’s team of trained tour guides will be available to take visiting groups through the Nelson’s Dockyard and the other surrounding facilities, including Block House and the Interpretation Centre.
On Thursday 19th July, the Nelson’s Dockyard will host Children’s Adventure Day. This is an all day event that will be packed with a host of fun activities for the kids, including the exciting Bunjee Jumping, a Treasure Hunt, Face Painting, and a special Dockyard Olympics with fun games and prizes.
It will also be an opportunity for the children and their camp leaders to gain some useful knowledge about Nelson’s Dockyard as guided tours will be conducted around the park.
“The response has been very good so far. We are especially looking forward to hosting the summer camps since I know parents would be pleased to know that their kids are not only having fun but learning as well during the holidays,” stated Marketing Manager of the NPA Eloise Francis.
Cut off time for the Children’s Adventure Day is June 29 and forms can be collected from the Ministry of Youth located in the building just beyond the fence of the Prime Minister’s Office. For more information, persons can also call 460-1058 or 779-7933 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
