General Colin Powell Challenge Course
Join us at the GRAND OPENING of the General Colin Powell Challenge Course on Friday, September 27, 2013 at 4:00pm at the Treasure Beach Sports Park.
Breds - Treasure Beach Foundation has been constructing the course during the summer of 2013.They worked with the members of the Jamaica Defense Force (Army) to construct a low and high ropes challenge course at the Treasure Beach Sports Park & Academy.
"We see this is an opportunity for persons to engage in a program that will have huge positive impact for youth across Jamaica".
Partners and sponsors of this program include the engineering corps of the Jamaica Defense Force, UNICEF, Jamaica Power Company (JPS), Orstrom Foundation, Rise Life, Seeds of Peace and Breds.
Ropes courses are proven to take persons out of their comfort zone and enhance team building, communication skills and approach to problem solving. We are expecting persons who are 'early to bed and early to rise' and who are willing to take instructions and work as a team.
On the evening of June 29th there was an appreciation party where all volunteers received a certificate of participation. On Sunday, June 30th a Sports Festival was held ncluding a cricket match between the Jamaica Defense Force and Treasure Beach Pirates followed by a match between two premier league teams, Waterhouse and Portmore United.
