The goal of the Ray Cam Community Co-op centre is to provide access to recreational, educational, social, cultural and economic programmes, which advance the opportunities for community members, especially children and youth; and enable them to make successful and fulfilling life choices.
The hotel supports the centre in various ways, focusing on educational workshops and aid for children, youth and women.
The hotel runs the following programmes at Ray Cam Community Co-op:
All About You Women Fair – The programme includes equipping young teenagers with information on teenage pregnancy, body health care, and skills workshops in cooking, pampering, exercising and relaxation.
‘Education is our Future’ – This programme offers sponsorship for a chosen youth to attend post-secondary school facilities. The hotel has developed a 5 STAR job-shadowing week during which 5 youths are chosen to shadow 5 employees for 5 days at the hotel.
Help a Kid to School – this programme consists of assisting each family from the community through the purchase of educational tools for their children. This includes a backpack filled with school essentials like notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, etc.
Lunch with Care – the hotel has become their main provider of Christmas Lunch, which is open to all members of the community. In addition, it provides every child with a Christmas gift and each family with a “Market Basket” with home essentials like shampoo, toothpaste, bed sheets, towels and canned food items.
