Casa de Campo Living magazine’s summer issue is dedicated to film-lovers! We’ve seen how throughout the years Casa has served as a backdrop for many films, music videos, and tv specials plus Altos de Chavón houses a fantastic film school at the Chavón School of Design so we decided to dedicate the first half of this issue to the growing film industry and in our second half you’ll find information on shopping, dining, resort excursions, sporting facilities and more.
You’ve been asking and here it is, our guide to Summer Camps in Casa de Campo! With camps starting for kids as young as 4 years old through teens, there’s something for everyone, and with a wide range of activities to boot. While we recommend young ones develop their skills at the resort’s favorite pastimes like golf, tennis, polo, and shooting, you’ll also find that they have options outside of Casa.
Last year, the Altos de Chavón School of Design they also opened a new technical career in film headed by Tanya Valette, who joined the school after serving as the director of the International School of Cinema and Television in Cuba. With high hopes and expectations for the film students, everything seems to be falling into place rather quickly. We talked to both Tanya and Pedro Carrasco, the careers technical coordinator to learn more about the growing film curriculum at Chavón.
It is always a proud moment when a Latino excels in their chosen career path. Such is the case with Guillermo del Toro who continues to inspire filmmakers around the world. This awards season, Mexican film director, screenwriter, and producer Guillermo del Toro has been recognized for his 2017 film, The Shape of Water. He is a testament that if you work hard and don’t let your fears and doubts take control of you, you will be able to fulfill your dreams.
Lastly, while we look to the new good times ahead, we sure don’t forget about the ones we’ve had. We recap some of Casa de Campo’s treasured events and local news. There’s one thing to be sure of in Casa— and that’s no matter where you go, you’re surrounded by friends, a loving and supportive community, and people who are out and about enjoying the ultimate lifestyle. Sports tournaments, art exhibitions, concerts, charities, anniversaries and birthdays, there’s no better place to live than Casa!
