There have been a lot of comings and goings in this month of September at the Belize City house with special visits and celebrations.
LIFE Staff collaborated with a summer bond camp in Belize, which was held at St. Martin De Pores Swift Hall compound July 10-14, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. The camp hosted 100 students from ages 6-11 for five days in Arts and Craft, Service and Gratitude, Education and Sports (volleyball, basketball, football). Two snacks and a lunch were provided each day.
Behavior monitoring forms were completed daily and a discipline structure called MOP (Me, Others, Property) and 4As (Acknowledge, Accept, Apologize, Amends) were utilized. Students were awarded daily if they were caught doing something good, and they received giveaways. On the final day, students participated in a career fair based on what they wanted to be when they grew up. At the end of the camp, each student received a backpack with some school supplies.
Sister Carlette and her mother, Gloria, did the cooking and snack for the kids and the 40 volunteers. Sister Carlette was also responsible for the craft session with the kids. Parents said that after the first day of camp, they did not even have to wake their kids up the next day to get ready. They enjoyed it so much.
The camp was put together by Dr. Carolyn Gentle Genitty as a way of helping children to be heard and giving back to Belize.
