    Plenty of fun: the Solstice Summer Camp includes Lego building, yoga and rock climbing


Camps designed to build children’s confidence and social skills are to be held this summer.

The Solstice Summer Camps for children aged four and older will include yoga, rock climbing and pizza making, as well as building with Lego bricks.

Eloise Pitts Crick, Solstice executive director and senior psychologist, said: “The purpose of the camp is to help children develop their social and communication skills and to improve their confidence, particularly in social settings. It’s an active and fun camp.”

The three weeklong camps will be led by a clinical psychologist and feature senior speech and language therapists, an arts therapist, a yoga teacher and a consultant psychiatrist.

The camps will also feature eight Bermudian postgraduate and undergraduate interns who will help professionals and create an adult to child ratio of 1:3.

The camps will be held between July 2 and 6 and July 9 to 13 and are aimed at six to nine year olds. The camp from August 27 to 31 is aimed at four to nine year olds.

The two July camps take place at WindReach Bermuda. A venue for the third camp is still be finalised. All Solstice’s camp personnel are certified by child abuse prevention charity Scars.

The camps will cost $250 per child plus a $30 booking fee, which includes a shirt and cap.

Anyone interested in sending their child to summer camp can should call 292-3456 or e-mail camps@solstice.bm. For more details visit www.solstice.bm<;/i>
