Swimming and Drumming Lessons for Kids

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Summer stretches seemingly endlessly for children on the island. With no homework, hardly any chores to do, the vast sea calls them to spend as much time in the water as possible. But what about those who can’t swim, and can’t afford summer camp or lessons? Well, Reverend Julie Bradley and her team of about 10 volunteers from Los Angeles have been giving a bit of swimming lessons to local children at The Tides Hotel pool, and on Thursday, the fast learners had a fun trip to Hol Chan, to enjoy what their island offers…

Later that evening, they had Drum Circle, where kids and volunteers alike got to enjoy the primitive beats of the local Garifuna drums…kudos to the volunteers!!
