Want to connect with other Ministry entities? The Youth Services Unit (YSU) will be delivering life skills sessions and special events at some DOS Summer Camps. The National Gallery hosts regular drop-in/registered art programmes for youth throughout the year, as well as tours of seasonal collections. The National Museum hosts an annual "Immerse Summer Camp"; although registration is presently closed for this as spots fill-up quickly. Consider visiting during regular museum hours, as this provides the perfect opportunity to tour and learn more about the islands.
