HALF MOON FORT Primary and Desmond Haynes Camp are the winners of the inaugural National Summer Camp cultural extravaganza.In a telephone interview, technical director Quincy Jones said the competition was divided into two age categories: four-to-nine and ten-to-15.Half Moon Fort Primary won the ten-to-15 category followed by Cuthbert Moore Primary and Arthur Smith Primary, while Desmond Haynes Camp won the four-to-nine category followed by Milton Lynch Primary and Eagle Hall Primary.The extravaganza, entitled Creating A New Path Of Excellence, was held yesterday at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium, Wildey, St Michael.It featured 28 groups and individuals from the four zones which make up the national camp programme.During a media interview earlier, Jones said no parents were invited to the extravaganza and the youngest campers were specially supervised, adding they would look at changing this format in the future.Minister of Youth Stephen Lashley described the show as “a wonderful event”. “There is a lot of talent among the campers and the programme has been successful in bringing that talent out.”The performances were mainly in singing and dancing. Master of ceremonies was Carl “Alff” Padmore.
