A MASSIVE?SLASH IN FUNDING has resulted in a significantly smaller 2014 National Summer Camp Programme.
As a result of the 80 per cut in the $3.5 million budget the camps have been reduced from 64 in 2013 to 46 this year and shortened to five weeks instead of six.
But the biggest change to the programme is the cancellation of free meals.
The drastic changes were revealed by Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth Stephen Lashley yesterday during a Press conference at his Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall, St Michael office to launch the programme, which will run from July 14 to August 15.
