Educational Camp at Leo Bradley Library

The Leo Bradley Library in Belize City is hosting a smaller version of its summer camp this year to allow for social distancing.  But those lucky children who were able to sign up are enjoying various activities and special presentations. News Five stopped by the library this morning.

“The program simply is to disseminate information and have the kids do creative activities, as you all know, because of the pandemic they have had to stay home a lot. Now, we want them to have a positive outing, somewhere they can come and enjoy the books, the activities and the space we have for them.”

“One of the things I hear them talking about right now is COVID and the impact of COVID. What are some of the things they are learning here at the program?”

“Of course we are teaching them about COVID and the effects it is having on Belize. We invited our friends from the Ministry of Health. They came to show them how to do proper hand washing yesterday. We also invited our friends from the Met Services of Belize, because you know we are in the hurricane season so they still need this information in the event that something may happen. Our other guest today will be the fire station. So they will get that information of what they could do in the event of a fire, how to keep themselves safe and take it back to their parents. So, we are not only teaching them, yes we want them to come in enjoy the books and the library, but we have different partners that we are working with to give them different information throughout this month.”

 

Pre-COVID, the summer program would host up to a hundred children, but due to COVID-19 protocols, the program was significantly downsized to less than twenty.
