Summer Bond Camp Wraps Up with Huddle Time with Professionals, Including Police Commissioner

As we drive deeper into the summer, kids are starting and completing their time in various summer programs. Today at Swift Hall in Belize City, one hundred kids attended their last day at Summer Bond. Their last day was entitled, Huddle Time with a Professional. Camp Organizer, Dr. Carolyn Gentle-Genitty, ran us through what the last day of the camp entailed and how excited the kids were to meet people of different professions and advice their special guest, Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams of different ways to make Belize better.  

Dr. Carolyn Gentle-Genitty: “The last day was literally a career fair. We were calling it “huddle time with a professional”. So after the presenters did a five minute presentation of their craft and their area the students got to go in a corner with that professional and ask any question that they would like. And I think I was joking with you earlier about the questions they had for Chester Williams, our commissioner of police. And they were asking, how old are you? When are you gonna retire? Why are you tiptoeing while you’re giving a presentation? Why did you wanna be a police? So it was a phenomenal presentation, yeah. In the last class for service and gratitude all the kids get to talk about what would be a better Belize. What should they do? And so they wrote down all their recommendations on some white prints. Some of the younger kids drew what they wanted fixed. Talk about more plants and more trees, better playground, get rid of stray dogs, clean the drain, right? They had a whole bunch of recommendations.”

We spoke to some happy campers who were eager to share what they loved most about their time spent at the camp. 

Camper: “I love the camp and I love all the teachers and I love to do work and I appreciate the food and the people.”

Camper: “I learned basketball, I learned football, I learned all kind of things.”

Reporter: What about arts and crafts and certain things?

Camper: “I learned about fire trucks. I learned about morse code, everything, about fire trucks.”
