Project SOFT 2018 starting in August


Share post:

The different changes children will undergo as they transition into teenagers will be highlighted when this year’s Project S.O.F.T. (Safeguarding Our Future Today) gets under way from Sunday, August 26, to Saturday, September 1.

The 16th annual one-week residential camp, hosted by the National Council on Substance Abuse (NCSA), will cater to 40 children who sat this year’s Common Entrance Examination. It will be held at the Marian Retreat House, Verdun, St John.

Students attending this year’s camp will embrace the theme: Know the Facts . . . Make the Choice, as officials prepare them for entry into secondary school by discussing the multiple life challenges that will confront them.

Registration for the camp begins on Tuesday, July 17, and runs until Friday, August 10, or until all the spaces are booked. There is also a $60 registration fee.

For further information, interested persons may contact Makeada Bourne or Agnetha Roach-Chase at the NCSA at 535-6272, or email (BGIS)
