Tomorrow PCW’s Camp Fusion will be honouring popular entertainer Edwin Yearwood as part of its last day.
Camp Fusion: Youth Beyond Expectations is the summer development programme of the Pinelands Creative Workshop, in conjunction with the Royal Barbados Police Force Band.
For the past seven years, the camp has been using music and dance as an entry point to develop well rounded children. This year 45 children aged four to 16 took part.
Director Sophia Greaves-Broome said the camp was not all about the creative arts as it also included debating, swimming and public speaking, among other disciplines.
As for the tribute, she said they had honoured entertainers in the past, including Anthony Gabby Carter and Stedson RPB Wiltshire. “We want our students to have a grounding in local music. This year we are honouring Edwin Yearwood with dance, music, theatre and steel pan,” she said.
Yesterday the campers and co-ordinators were going through their routines at Parkinson School, where the camp has been held for the past seven years.
The final day, called Peace Jam, will begin at 6:30 p.m.
