Africentric Kids Summer Camp 2017 was an exciting event for us all. Many thanks to all our campers, friends, volunteers, parents, and the Sierra Leonean community.
We had children whose lineage are from Congo, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Trinidad, and Jamaica. Some are fluent in other languages like French, Krio, and patois locally "partwah." Our campers learned arts & crafts, dancing, gardening, story-telling, and African history.
Kobèna Aquaa-Harrison a prolific multidisciplinary artist from Ghana also taught basic drumming. Our children gained confidence and performed drumming and dancing at a fundraising events for the devastating mudslide crisis in Sierra Leone.
