SANDALS FOUNDATION LAUNCHES CAMP GROW 2013
Wednesday 14th August 2013

Dozens of well-wishers gathered on August 8, 2013 for the official launch of Camp Grow at the camp grounds in Mercer’s Creek.

Anne Harewood George, who spoke on behalf of the Sandals Foundation, applauded the initiative, which is a collaborative effort between the Environmental Awareness Group and Gilbert Agricultural and Rural Development Center (GARD).

“We are thrilled that the Sandals Foundation is able to provide 22 scholarships to children, who could not afford to attend the camp, because training them to be environmental stewards in a communal setting is paramount to their personal growth and development,” Harewood George said.

Camp Grow 2013 supporters and participants pose at the official launch.  The Sandals Foundation is a diamond sponsor.

Going into its third year, Camp Grow, which will take place August 12 –23, offers 45 children between the ages of 8 and 11 the opportunity to engage in outdoor educational, cultural and recreational activities.

“Peace Corps volunteers Jen Davis and Rachel Hall approached me with this amazing vision for an environmental camp and I have seen it grown exponentially over the last three years thanks to our dedicated volunteers, camp counsellors and sponsors,” said Roberta Williams, executive director of GARD.

Twelve year-old Ken-Nyse Lynch reflected on her experience as a camper and spoke about planting seeds, creating crafts from recycled material and venturing on field trips where she learned about the rich marine life of Antigua and Barbuda. “Camp Grow taught me to be more environmentally aware and I have made amazing friends from this once in a lifetime experience,” said Lynch.
