Tennis Summer Camp with Dr. Raju at Hilltop, City of BelmopanClose to 500 children and youths participated in summer camps in the Capital City over the past two months through the collaborative efforts of Belmopan Area Representative Hon. John Saldivar, the Belmopan City Council, the Belmopan Sports Council and Belmopan’s Sporting Associations.

The camps featured sports in six disciplines: tennis, karate, softball, football, basketball and volleyball, each camp running for a period of two weeks. The participation in all the camps exceeded the target, and no child was turned away. 

Minister Saldivar expressed great satisfaction at the overwhelming success of the camps, and he emphasized the great benefit of such programs in steering the energies of our children and youths into positive activities and away from delinquency and crime.

Minister Saldivar will present medals to participants at a ceremony to be held on Thursday, August 23rd, 2012 at the UB Gymnasium.

This is the fourth year that these camps have been held in Belmopan; the interest and participation have grown consistently from year to year.
