7 Year Old From Tortola, BVI (Caribbean) Inpires Dare 2 Be Different to Host 2012 Summer Camp
A 7 Year old boy from the Caribbbean island of Tortola, BVI inspired President of Dare 2 Be Different International Khrystus Wallace to reconsider plans to cancel all activities for Summer 2012.
The child who vacationed in St. Kitts last year and attended Dare 2 Be Different's In-Day Camp, was adamant that he wanted to come back to St. Kitts to participate. Soon after landing, he wanted to come to find out about Camp, but missed the President. According to Mrs. Yvette, Wallace, the president's mom, she said she felt the child's excitement as he spoke and his grandmother couldn't stop him from saying that he was so grateful for all the Computer Help He got at Dare 2 Be Different's Summer Camp 2011 and he was waaaaay ahead of his class back at home.
Late Thursday afternoon, 12th July 2012, Khrystus agreed with his team that they should still do something this year and the 7 year old was one of the first to know.
Wallace has dubbed this year's Camp as - The Business Exploraton, and it falls under his ministry's Mission Mobilization division (http://www.mmskn.org/). Wallace is only allowing 15 children/youth in the morning session and 15 children/youth in the afternoon session because of the slant this year's activities will take and the careful attention that is needed with each individual participant aged 7 - 15.
An innovative Wallace said that as he considered what to do this year, God gave him the idea to have a Business Exploraton and teach the participants how to operate and open their own businesses by giving them hands on experience at http://www.kvkenterprises.com/, http://www.shopandshipskn.com/ and his Ministry http://www.d2bdifferent.com/.
He commented, "Thus, for the next 7 - 8 weeks, the Business Exploraton participants will be taught good customer service, how to answer the phones, bank and do corporate transactions, print t-shirts, mugs, banners, signs, use the embroidery machines, clear packages for customers and some would be taught basic sewing by my mother and get to compose and record their own songs in my brother's studio - http://www.djmerci.com/ . Although it's a last minute plan, I'm totally excited about it and I know my 7 year old Tortola friend is too."
Weekly Sessions are EC$50 for half day - 9am - 12noon or 1pm - 4pm or EC$75 for the full day (Monday to Friday)

Wallace closed and boasted, "Dare 2 Be Different continues to lead the way with innovative ideas, plans and activities for our youth. I am most excited to see which parents would act fast and register before spaces are filled. I know I can say that NO SUMMER CAMP 2012 in St. Kitts - Nevis is going out to this extent to get youth involved in business, teach them skills and help them start their own little businesses.I can personally be reached at: 869-663-0114 or BB PIN: 220067D8"
