camp power to be jamaica
Camp Power to Be started out as a small program in 2010.
In our first year, we provided space for 36 children and implemented the camp in an open field area.
Since then, we have expanded the program to provide services for youth between the ages of 6 and 18 at Negril All Ages School in Negril, Westmoreland.
Mt. Airy Ages School, located about 20 mins from Negril, is the new site for the program, which begins in July 2023.
Renewing and restoring Camp Power to Be after a three-year hiatus brought on by the impact of COVID-19
We are pleased to be restarting this program in Jamaica with our flagship Literacy and Leadership Camp. Our program at Mt. Airy All Ages School will begin with two streams that concentrate on different aspects of child and youth development with a focus on literacy and leadership.
• Literacy Stream (6 to 11 years old)
• Leadership Stream (12 to 14 years old)
