For the 13th year in the village of Buxton, the “Carl Hooper” cricket camp started out on Tuesday to teach the gentleman’s game to young children and better the skills of those who are already involved.With massive support from Bissan’s Trading, the camp set out with its mandate of community development at the Buxton Ground on the East Coast of Demerara from as early as 09:30h.For the next two weeks, the camp will be home to children between the ages of 7-19. The participants are not only from Buxton but also the surrounding communities.Speaking on the initiative, Buxton Cricket Club’s President Essie Peters disclosed that the club will cater to 40 students and is strictly for their benefit. “The Camp is not ‘make money’ but to instil good values to the youths them and keep them away from doing the wrong things when they have so much free time now school isBissan’s Trading proprietor Bissoon Singh presents the sponsorship cheque to Club President Essie Petersclosed,” Peters explained.He further disclosed that the registration fee has been waived owing to the fact that many of the participating students hail from single-parent homes, hence requesting a fee from them would be counter-productive to the intended purpose of the camp. He went on to state that any costs arising out of the camp would be covered by the sponsorship provided.The daily sessions will take on a school-like approach, running between the hours of 09:00h and 15:00h. The capable staff on board will be teaching technical, practical, and physical lessons coupled with off-field activities. Additionally, the Camp will feature sessions with the likes of national youth cricketer Clive Andries, who played in Guyana’s champion three-day U-19 team in St Kitts in 2008 and former national U-19 and Berbice senior inter-county off-spinner Sean Devers.The Buxton Cricket Club was founded in 1992 and was involved in many tape-ball competitions before being officially launched as the Buxton Carl Hooper Club in 2002 when Hooper was appointed as Captain of the West Indies cricket team.
