BUEI offers virtual voyages as holiday camps are closed

Interactive sessions taking youngsters on voyages out to sea will be offered to the community next week by the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.

The 40-minute online presentations will guide children aged 5 to 13 through different aspects of ocean travel, with craft session using household materials, and chances to ask questions of BUEI crew members.

The Voyages@Sea Zoom sessions will air at 10am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, feeding live to BUEI’s Facebook channel and broadcast on CITV.

Karla Lacey, chief executive of the BUEI, said the voyages would offer safe and fun activities at a time when spring camps were cancelled due to the latest Covid-19 outbreak , child-friendly indoor recreation was closed and the public were advised to tighten their family bubbles against the spread of the coronavirus.

Families can register for the Zoom links and review a list of activities and materials needed at www.BUEI.bm or by calling 294-0209.

Children will be able to show their crafts in real time via Zoom, and get a chance to win prizes.

CITV is also broadcast on 102 WOW and Channel 2 on Bermuda Cablevision.
