Casa de Campo will once again be host to a fabulous 2-day weekend with activities ranging from bicycle racing, zumba classes, tours of the homes and gardens around the resort, golf, tennis, and a huge dance party to finish off the weekend. The Hogar del Niño Weekend is a fundraising activity held to raise attention and aid for the Patronato Benéficio Oriental’s organization and schools.
