All systems go
THERE SHOULD BE NO PROBLEMS concerning the payment of camp counsellors participating in the Government summer camp programme this year.
“I don’t think payment will be an issue this year as we are putting plans in place to avoid similar situations [with payment which were encountered in the past],” said new manager of the National Summer Camps, Haldene Dottin.
Speaking to the DAILY NATION yesterday after the opening ceremony for the camps at the National Stadium, Dottin said they held meetings with all stakeholders to iron out such problems and he did not expect them to resurface.
“This year we got feedback from stakeholders to get an idea of the issues they were previously confronted with, and that is why planning had commenced at such an early stage,” he said.
The National Camp Programme opens on Monday and lasts until August 12. (CA)
