The Esperanza School Summer Camp provides a nutritious hot lunch and structured summer camp activities for the children of Esperanza. Summer vacation is in January in Costa Rica. For camp year 2016, the camp will run from January 4-29, Monday-Friday, 8:15-1:00.
The need for a vacation program in Esperanza is strong. Esperanza is a poor community with a large number of young children who live in extreme poverty. The daily school meal is an important part of the children’s diet, and in January school is closed for vacation.
Esperanza’s children also enjoy the opportunity to build their skills in traditional camp activities such as sports and arts and crafts, as well as taking frequent trips to the beach.
