The Happy Val­ley-Goose Bay Crime Pre­ven­tion Com­mit­tee is host­ing a free camp for a dozen youth aged 11-13 this week­end, Sept. 7-9.

The com­mit­tee started of­fer­ing the camp sev­eral years ago to give youth an op­por­tu­nity to form pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships with their peers.

Campers will par­tic­i­pate in fun ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing every­thing from ca­noe­ing to camp­fires says RCMP Const. Chris At­tewell, who serves on the Crime Pre­ven­tion Com­mit­tee.

The camp takes place at the Labrador Chris­tian Youth Camp.

Trans­porta­tion will be pro­vided.

“We hope to have youth from all dif­fer­ent back­grounds and we want to build a bond .... a com­mon link, be­tween them,” At­tewell told The Labradorian.

Bring­ing youth to­gether for some fun ac­tiv­i­ties like tak­ing a hike and hav­ing a wiener roast will help do that, he says.

At­tewell adds a nu­tri­tion­ist will also visit the camp to give a pre­sen­ta­tion on healthy eat­ing and how to pre­pare nu­tri­tious meals.
