The camp will focus on delivering a series of intense coaching clinics for the most successful and talented grade six students coming out of the recent Kiddy Cricket Festivals held across the English Caribbean.



Territorial Development Officers are slated to deliver the main technical components of the camp, with the assistance of other support staff from the local cricket boards including umpires who will expose children to the rules of the game.



Guidance counsellors from the schools across the Ministries of education across the islands will host personal development sessions.



The participating territories in the Scotiabank Kiddy Cricket summer camp will include Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, Grenada, St Vincent, St Lucia, Dominica, Antigua, St Kitts, Nevis, Anguilla, St Maarten, BVI and Montserrat.



The Kiddy Cricket summer camps will take on two main formats including a series of day camps for smaller territories as well as overnight camps in larger venues.



Each camp will host 60 children.



Overnight camps will run for a period of five days and four nights.
