Island Academy

In the face of current school systems eliminating recess, and children spending more and more time in front of computer screens, the Community Adventure Play Experience (CAPE) offers the chance for children to rediscover the “basics of play” as a way to develop initiative, collaborate, and problem-solve using recycled materials in their own communities. Arising out of the Westchester based Children’s development institute, the CAPE Project comes to Antigua’s own Island Academy in the hopes of bringing children together through play to inspire the children of Antigua and Barbuda. The Jumby Bay Fund recently sponsored 12 children to attend the Island Academy and participate in the CAPE Project, all 12 children were displaced by the past devastating hurricanes.
