Parents and guardians have again been given assurances of the safety and wellbeing of their kids who will be participating in the 2nd edition of the Annual Youth Summer Camp.

The Ministry of Youth and Sports is set to organise their second local Annual Youth Summer Camp slated for 16 through 18 August in Basse.

It is expected that more than 100 young people from across the regions of the country would attend.

Also the camp organizers further assure parents and guardians that its first International Youth Summer Camp to be held in Dakar, Senegal, from 25 August to 1 September this year will also be conducted hitch-free.

Speaking to The Point in an interview, Youth and Sports director Pa Suwareh Faye said parents and guardians should be rest assured of their kids’ safety and wellbeing during the period of the camps.

Mr Faye revealed that they have so far received registrations from almost 75 children for the Basse camp and 65 children for the International Summer Camp.

He further urged parents and guardians to register their kids as early as possible while disclosing the participation of their partners from Community without Borders (CWB) of London, the UK.

The security of the kids and their health while at the camps will not be compromised, Mr Faye said.

He also said the committee is currently working on preparations towards the events but faced with transportation constraint, especially for those coming from far distances.
