SPTC hosts summer camp activities for island children


Summer in La Isla Bonita usually means any number of camps set up to keep children active during the school break. Sports are a top choice of activity, and this year is packed with adrenaline, team work, and most of all, fun! On behalf of the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC), the San Pedro Sports Committee introduced a sporting summer camp that started on Monday, July 18th and will run until Friday, August 12th.SPTC Summer Sports Camp-5
Sports Coordinator Kent Bob Gabourel, along with Councilor in charge of Sports, Hector Alamilla, is hosting the camp. In its first week, around 30 children joined them at the Honorable Louis Sylvester Complex to practice the basics of football. The campers were taught how to line up on a field, control a ball, shoot, pass, and the general rules of the game.SPTC Summer Sports Camp-6
The camp is split in two sessions, one in the morning, and the other in the afternoon. Gabourel has indicated that the kids are very enthusiastic and willing to learn basic skills, while having fun. Since the camp runs for a month, different sporting activities will take place each week.SPTC Summer Sports Camp-7
