About 6,000 fun-loving school children are expected to attend the 2016 Cowbell summer camp tagged ‘Chocademy’.
The Brand Manager, Cowbell Choco, Promasidor Nigeria, Kingsley Onuoha, said this year’s edition of the ‘edutainment’ programme holds in Makurdi, Enugu, and Ilorin.
According to him, the six-day summer camp opened in Makurdi from August 8-13, 2016. He said the summer camp would hold in Enugu between August 15 and 20; and would move to Ilorin from August 22 to August 27, 2016.
“The summer camp is designed to engage and educate school children during the long holiday. Spending the summer holidays learning outside of a customary school environment can help students get ahead of their classmates when they return to school, as skills acquired during the summer programme can enhance their leadership, athletic and academic opportunities.”
Onuoha said the idea behind ‘Chocademy’ is to bring together children with diverse cultural and religious affiliations and social classes to a healthier, moral and social learning field where aerobic exercises, knowledge-sharing, moral education activities will be undertaken among others.
He therefore advised mothers and other caregivers to enroll their children and wards as quality educators have been arranged to handle each module of the summer camp such that the participating children and their parents will go back home fulfilled.
He said the programme promises to be fun, as a lot of exciting gift items and product would be given out to all participants.
