Caribbean culture and summer fun have found common ground at the Carlos Lezama Archives and Caribbean Cultural Center Cultural Summer Day Camp — a sanctuary for youngsters aged 7 to 15.
From July 1 to Aug. 23, the weekday, activity-packed sessions will be based at Medgar Evers College Preparatory School, 1186 Nostrand Ave. (at Carroll St.), in Brooklyn.
There will be weekly field trips, but the daily doings are a number of culturally-rich, supervised activities. They include carnival costume design, Caribbean folk dancing, steel pan, stilt-walking, soca aerobics, drumming, poetry, theater and even financial literacy, an important component for young people.
Summer camps participants also have the opportunity to take part in the CLACC-C Children’s Festival on Aug. 24.
Youngsters can attend the 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. session or a half-day. Cost is $875 for the full day and $575 for the half-day session. Flexible enrollment for the eight-week-long program includes the option of creating a part-time day care schedule. For information, call (718) 421-4312 or (516) 984-8948. And visit www.claccc.org.
