Ready for some summer fun? The sun is out and shining and the kids are happy; hip hip horray! But what do you do to keep your little bundles of joy still full of joy? Enroll them in summer camp, of course! While our next issue of Casa de Campo Living magazine (coming out soon!!) details all the summer camps available this year, we’re adding another one to our list. We just learned the Orfanato Niños de Cristo in La Romana will hold their own summer camp and it’s going to be awesome!!!
All week from 8:00am – 3:00pm, children can join the boys in athletics including basketball, baseball, soccer, gymnastics, and karate! They’ll also be able to partake in drawing, dancing, ecological walks and recreational activities. It’s a wonderful opportunity for your kids to be outdoors and active, and involved in a local charity.
The Niños de Cristo is an orphanage for approximately 50 boys located in La Romana and run by community members Orietta Citati and Coco Lorenzi-de Bailliencourt. Recently accredited by the National Council for Childhood and Adolescence (CONANI), the Niños de Cristo is an excellent charity whose children are full of passion and excitement. Always with a big smile on their faces, they are inquisitive and happy, especially when receiving visitors! Whether it’s a visit from the former Ambassador James “Wally” Brewster and Bob Satawake, Biggest Loser trainer Dolvett Quince, or the Abraham Lincoln School students who are fulfilling their Community Service credits through the Bows for Toes program, the children of Niños de Cristo are excited to have new company around!
The summer camp is open for children 8 years old to 15 from July 3rd – 14th. Choose from 1 week or 2 weeks at the Niños de Cristo and watch the difference it makes in you and your children’s lives and that of thee boys at the orphanage. VOLUNTEERS ARE MORE THAN WELCOME to come any day and time to help out in the activities and fun. Inscriptions for children include a T-shirt, snack and lunch.
