Showcasing Bermuda’s hospitality industry by engaging kids in a fun and meaningful way, the Bermuda Hospitality Institute are offering their Miles of Smiles Summer Camp from Monday, August 18th until Friday, August 22nd.
Miles of Smiles is one of the most intimate Summer Camps with only 12 kids each week. The camp is open to young people aged between 8 and 13 and participants will learn about and experience all the wonderful aspects of Bermuda that bring visitors to our shores.
The camp will run from 8.30am until 4pm daily. Every day starts off with a lesson in hospitality at the Bermuda Hospitality Institute’s offices on Church Street (through the glass doors next to Crow Lane Express, on the Penthouse floor) before heading off to off to explore, interact and have fun though a variety of special activities, as well as behind the scenes access that they otherwise would not have.
Some highlights include hotel tours, golf lessons, private cooking lessons, and stand up paddle-boarding.
The cost is $325 for the week, which includes all the activities and limited financial assistance may be available. Every week includes one lunch at minimum and campers are required to bring lunch daily except where noted. Swimming ability required where noted.

One of the few times when it’s okay to judge people based on their appearance, the Bermuda Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation presents the 27th Annual Night of Champions on Saturday, August 16th.
This will take place at the Ruth Seaton James Centre for the Performing Arts and admission will be $20 for the prejudging at 10am, $50 for the main event at 7pm.
