Summer is here, which not only means it’s time to turn on the air conditioning, it also means the kids are out of school. But in the Turks and Caicos, the summer does not equal bored kids. There is lots of fun to be had for kids of all ages.
Cultural & Environmental
Share the joy of exploring the cultural and natural heritage in fun and creative ways at this year’s Cultural and Environmental Camp hosted by the Turks and Caicos National Trust.
Under the theme Developing National Pride, children will be exposed to a host of activities which include learning folk songs and dances, and cultural activities such as basket weaving and local art. There will also be a field trip, tree planting and other sessions relating to the environment.
