SUMMER SURVIVAL: a special advertising supplement

Two styles of camp for those who want to dance By Robyn Bardgett rbardgett@bermudasun.bm

As well as being an amazing form of self-expression, dance is also a great stress relief and a way to lead a healthy lifestyle. For those looking for a taster of what a dance class is all about, the Jackson’s School of Performing Arts will be holding two styles of summer camp in July and August.

July camp The July camp focuses on ballet, modern and jazz, and will also feature lessons in creative movement, choreography, yoga, dance history and stage makeup, taught by Brittany Adams and Emily Polasik.

August camp The August camp, taught by Angelina Simas (Ms Angie), will feature hip-hop and break dancing as well as ballet, jazz and modern.

Campers will also be treated to theme days, including a slumber party and princess days. “This is a great way for a child who wants to start dancing but might be intimidated to try out dance for the first time,” says Jeanne Legere, managing director of Jackson’s. “It’s also great for those dancers who want to try out a different medium of dance.” Should children want to continue with dance in the fall, the school offers beginners classes for all ages. Mrs Legere says she sees dance bring out the star in children who appear shy. “Dance is a great release of emotions and everyday stresses,” she says. “It’s also a great way to make friends.” n

For more information on camp registration, contact the school on 292-5815 or email jacksonsschoolofperformingarts@gmail.com.

Kids encouraged to develop a love of sailing By Robyn Bardgett rbardgett@bermudasun.bm

Sailing has such rich history on the island and the Junior Summer Programme at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club is aiming to get more young people out and enjoying the water to continue on that maritime heritage. “Our priorities with the Junior Sailing programme are safety, fun and developing a love of sailing,” explains Neil Redburn, RHADC vice commodore. The programme starts children early to build an appreciation for the sport, as well as confidence on the water. “We take safety very seriously and all of our instructors are certified sailing instructors as well as CPR and first-aid qualified,” Mr Redburn adds. Sailors can test out the waters in a variety of boats as they become more comfortable with the water and include Optimists, Open Bics, and 420s, and Lasers for the older, more experienced sailors. The programme begins with children as young as

five years old with Water World. “Water World introduces the younger kids to safety, being comfortable on the water and being confident about getting into the boats and the kids advance depending on the maturity of each child,” Mr Redburn says. The Learn to Sail introduction programme is the next step, which teaches more detailed information about the sport. Sailors then advance to Level 1 and Level 2 where more complex sailing techniques are taught. The Junior Sailing Programme is based on the US Sailing curriculum and the hope is to get more younger people out on the water in Bermuda. “The programme is open to kids from all different backgrounds and you don’t have to be a RHADC member to sign up,” Mr Redburn says. The summer programme runs from June 30 until August 29 with a variety of options to choose from including half-day and full-day programmes depending on age. RHADC does offer Junior Membership rates, which

special rates and discounts. “The summer camp is a great way to introduce kids to the sport of sailing and we have many other programmes at the club for kids to continue their love for the sport,” says Mr Redburn. Along with an after-school junior programme, the club also has a racing team, appropriately named Team RHADCal. Because the club feels safety is such a huge part of running a successful junior programme, there is a Child Protection Policy in place and the instructors have recently been trained with SCARS — who train individuals and organizations to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. n

Under the water Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) Educational and fun summer camps for 7 to 13 year olds. Continuing their popular “Dabble in” themed camps, these educational camps are hands-on, involving labs, experiments, specimens, videos, interactive computer activities, scavenger hunts, arts and crafts, playacting and competitions.

The programmes integrate literacy and numeracy, and are designed to inform, motivate and excite

SUMMER SURVIVAL: a special advertising supplement children. Dabble in Prehistoric Seas: July 14 to 18 This five-day educational camp ‘starts’ at the birth/ creation of earth over 4½ billion years ago. Travelling through simulated time, students get up close and personal with the variety of life in the savage prehistoric seas ranging from the Cambrian to the Quaternary periods of the geological time scale. Through videos, computers, fossil labs and other unique hands-on activities, students learn about the dominant inhabitants of each major period, what survived and what caused major extinctions, and where Bermuda fit into the scheme of the prehistoric seas. Students will make moulds/casts of some of the “key” marine fossils of the past such as mosasaur teeth, ammonites, and trilobites, as well as excavate, analyze and interpret real fossil remains like palaeontologists. New camp! Dabble in Wild Weather: August 25 to 29. From mega-hurricanes, super storms, multi-vortex tornadoes to derichios, haboobs and huge storm surges, this five-day camp immerses the students into the causes, effects and impacts of global warming. Through incredible videos, hands-on activities, and realistic computer interactives, students engage in the understanding of the global changes, meteorological related events and catastrophes occurring in the environment. Students learn what they can do about it, to mitigate as well as prepare for the possible impacts to Bermuda. Camp participants make and test, in a lab and outdoors, their own take-home UV light detecting bracelets. The motto is: “Don’t be scared, be prepared!” Dabble in Dissection: July 21 to 25. A five-day educational camp introducing six very different unique invertebrate creatures: sponge, Hydra, segmented worm, clam, sea star and crayfish.

Students learn how special and well adapted these creatures are to their environment and the important role they play in the ocean. As they get “up close and personal” to each specimen they are taught safe and proper lab skills utilizing microscopes and dissecting tools. An overview is given of each organism’s phyla inclusive of alerting the students of the related dangerous or venomous members. Due to the nature of this camp, students must be 9 to 13 years old. Dabble in Pirates: July 28 – 30. This three-day educational, hands-on camp dwells in the realm of piracy as it deals with the different types of pirates, the most famous ones and the pirates

that were involved with Bermuda’s early history. From the past days of the Spanish Main and the Barbary Coast to today’s pirate havens of the world, students have fun as they are immersed in the pirate’s code of conduct, shipboard life, jolly rogers, gold doubloons and pieces of eight. Among the many camp activities are “Divide the Booty” and “How Did the Pirate Ship Sink?”, where students work with real artefacts and treasures as well as play an authentic pirate game of chance.
