Summer school in Samara by CREAR
Dreams come true for local kids
By Lindsay Lavelle
 

La Asociación CREAR just finished up another two weeks of camp with the children from two elementary schools in the Sámara area. As always, the camp was free to the local kids and provided a chance for supplemental learning during their time away from school. Thanks to a grant awarded by ProArtes, the National Program for the Development of the Arts, (Programa Nacional para el Desarrollo de las Artes), CREAR was able to invite the local children, ages 5 to 12, to partake in some activities never before offered to them.

The students went to the Children’s Museum in San Jose and to La Casona in the National Park in Santa Rosa. They participated in various workshops lead by professionals from San Jose and abroad including a theater class, a self-esteem workshop led by psychologist Marla Hernandez Gaubil, a movement workshop from professional dancer, Paula Rivera Villareal, and a workshop about the history of books by Diego Lasso. We also did the successful surf lessons provided by the always collaborative C & C Surf School, as well as numerous other art-based projects.

This was by far the most enriching camp CREAR has offered to date and the children were very enthusiastic. Another summer camp will be offered during the vacations in January. More fun trips and workshops are scheduled including a trip to Africa Mia, a canopy and turtle tour, a visit to La Selva zoo, and much more!

OPINION – THE METAL MONSTER
