This Christmas season Regina Beavers is planning on sharing her love, time and expertise with children who attend her Creative Christmas Camp.

The former Miss Jamaica World plans on bringing out the creative side of each child attending.

"We want to embrace and encourage creativity because we understand the importance of creative expression in a child's development," said Beavers

The name of the camp, ETC, is an acronym for Expression Through Creativity, and as that name suggests aims at strategically infusing activities that will inspire each camper and facilitate growth and development.

The camp is being held with the theory that nurturing child creativity can increase performance levels in all areas of academics, as its basis.

Beavers, the camp's director, will be sharing everything she knows about presenting, etiquette, and having the right attitude. The former Miss Jamaica World has also invited a number of celebrity guests to meet the children.

"I've always loved kids and have always had a secret desire to teach, so I have been preparing for this moment where I am in a position to make a difference with our children, our future," Beavers said.

The camp will also be supported by Shani Davies, child and adolescent therapist, through a series of workshops in dance, film, presentation, social skills, art, etc.

Registration begins December 1.
