Children from the Early Savers group were randomly selected to partake in craft, sports and learning activities.“We have an annual summer camp that our Early Savers club members benefit from. It is an account that we have for children, for infants to children that about 16 years old. Every year we do this and what we do is select account holders and we treat them to one week of summer camp,” she explained.As part of the programme, the younger group is facilitated in the morning, followed by the teenage group in the afternoon. This year, a sport was added to the list in the form of tennis for participants to experience all-round growth.“They do literacy sessions, arts and craft but this year we’ve added an outdoor component which is tennis. We’re really big on including children and ensuring that they have a holistic development and not just indoor activities,” Binda added.At the end of the programme on Friday, parents will be invited to view the works of the kids and also note the progress that was made in just a few days. An exhibition will display their artworks and other creative items that were made.This is the second consecutive year that the Kids Today Leaders Tomorrow (KTLT) programme has collaborated with the bank to assist with the learning sessions.“We have been in partnership with KTLT for about two years and we have been enjoying that partnership with them and so it will continue.”
