PRESS RELEASE:-In providing ongoing activities for participants of the Ione Erlinger Ford Education Programme, the St.Lucia Crisis Centre (SLCC) is holding its comprehensive two-week Summer Camp from July 24 –August 4, 2017 under the theme “Appreciation for our National Heritage” An average of thirty (30) children between the ages of 6 – 12 years are participating.

The children continue to be engaged in many fun filled and educational activities including, a tour to Heritage Sites, Creole Broadcaster, Lawrence Adonis presented on the Significance of the Creole Language, Corporal Antoine of the St. Lucia Police Force presented on the Responsibility of the Officers & Reflection on Mannerisms, Self Defense Classes among others. Coordinator inspired the children with innovative ways to prepare local foods and inspirational interventions with the support of Staff and Board Member, Andrew Sealy on a daily basis. This programme continues to impact positively on the children. Our success has been facilitated by philanthropic corporate concerns like our own. Despite its limited resources the St. Lucia Crisis Centre remains committed to its many clients.
This implies the assistance of volunteers locally, regionally and internationally as a means of providing support for this activity. The activity culminates on August 04 with a Closing Ceremony where children will be presented with Certificates as well as an opportunity to bid farewell to two of our French students who provided support to the Camp.
