Top Jamaican summer camp heads to the UK

PICTURE PERFECT: The Resolution project in Jamaica

IT’S SUMMER time and that usually means that parents have to grapple with finding new and interesting ways to keep their children busy, yet productive at the same time. The Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) is presenting a rewarding experience for children throughout the long summer break.

The JNBS UK Resolution Project One Week Summer Camp is open to parents and guardians who have children between the ages of 13 and 17. This programme is geared at promoting advocacy among young people through photography.

The JN Resolution Project, which has been ongoing in Jamaica since its establishment in 2004, in rural high schools across the island, has successfully trained hundreds of students in advocacy, photography and photo-journalism.
In 2012, JN Resolution Project images were displayed in London to showcase the work of rural high school students in Jamaica.

The photo exhibition, which was mounted in Elephant and Castle, south London, was well received and attracted over 1,000 visitors over a four-week period.

The UK programme is slated to run from July 28 - August 2, in south London and August 4 – 9 in north London under the theme, ‘Caribbean Identity and Culture’.

Your child could be a part of this invaluable experience and opportunity, similar to what is being delivered in Jamaica.

A contribution of £25.00 per child is requested and students will be equipped with T-shirts, cameras, lunch and transportation.

The images produced by participants will be entered in a competition and exhibited on at a one-day exhibition in August, as well as at a Main Exhibition during the month of October, as part of the JN UK’s black history month activities.

The staging of this six-day JN Resolution Project Summer Camp will engage with young people in the UK, who will get a chance to creatively express themselves through photography and advocate for a cause.

There are only 25 spaces available and these will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
