[www.inewsguyana.com] – Children from the various police division and scouts groupings on Sunday gathered at the Police Sports Club Ground Eve Leary before making their way to the 2014 Camp Site at Kuru-Kuru Linden Soesdyke Highway.
The camp is being headed by Senior Superintendent Maxine Graham. Speaking with iNews at the camp site, Graham said the camp this year will feature lots of outdoor activities to engage the brain.
While the camp falls under the umbrella of the Guyana Police Force, it is really the Guyana Women Police Association, an arm of the Police Force that is actually dealing with the logistics.
From the time the children entered the compound of the camping site, the security at the location beefed up and persons entering and leaving the premises were required to leave their names with the police.
While the children coming from the various locations will be camping out in dorms, the scouts will be camping in their tents in a semi jungle-like arrangement.
The scouts are known for exploring and engaging in challenging activities including survival challenges.
The Guyana Police Force Camp 2014 is being held under the theme “Empowering Youth Through Social Partnership and Team Building for a Better Guyana”
