everything we touch..... we change....
everything we change... changes us !!!!!
For nearly two decades years Camp Aquarius has provided children from the age of 4 to 18, with the opportunity to spend six weeks, becoming in tune with one of Barbados’ few natural resources: the ocean and its near environs.
Bring your child to experience the exotic marine world with Camp Aquarius, held for six weeks on the beachfront of beautiful and tranquil Browne's Beach on Carlisle Bay. The Bay is known to have more fish than any other part of the island and is also home to four ship wrecks which were sunk between 1917 and 1996. During the camp, participants will learn about the environment, the ocean, and living, working and playing with others different to themselves.
Our objectives are to encourage participants - both counselors and campers - to think, speak and carry out actions which bring about rational, responsible and reasonable responses, so that they are:
able to focus
able to listen
able to observe
able to understand
We aim to help participants:
Build self-esteem .
Develop leadership skill .
Develop in-water proficiency .
Develop confidence in the water .
Develop competence in the water.
Understand their limitations and learn to use their discretion.
We do this by using a variety of teaching tools, where campers learn to swim, kayak, snorkel and while understanding the value of our natural environment.
We teach our campers not just how to swim in the water, but also, how to swim in life.
By providing a space for young people to learn and grow, and then share that learning as they teach others we seek to develop tomorrow's leaders. They will learn with youth who are differently abled, others who learn at a rate faster or slower than they do: through this interaction, participants come to understand what being part of a team is about.
The watch words are: Be rational; Be responsible; Be reasonable
