A different way to get to know each other in Samara is sharing at the camp.
There’s something really special about the holidays in Samara, either in the summer of January or winter in July. Since Association CREAR opened 7 years ago, a camp during the holidays is taken place. Here in this camp all the kids from different schools, ages, nationalities, colors, and others, assist to this camp to share, learn, and overall have fun. The activities and dynamics performed in two communities include the kids that live in Samara and the communities surrounding it, like Matapalo and Torito.
Each camp takes place for 10 days, in different places and environments with different experiences but overall special. It is really important to recognize the increase in the population of the kids in the surrounding areas of samara, increasing the need of areas for the children to share, to develop art, to learn about nature, culinary experiences, recreative games, and others. This is a huge input that has been offered to the children since CREAR opened. The activities are planned at a low cost, which allows them to be offered for free. The alliances with different types of local businesses have allowed CREAR to add some other special activities like hiking tours, transportation, outdoor activities like going to the river or the beach with surf classes.
We can conclude from the prior information that these activities that CREAR realizes, offers a free space were the kids can learn how to share and get along with each other in a safe way. We can almost affirm that we are supporting in a positive way the growth of the upcoming future with new generations, that are going to be the ones taking administrative and working positions in Samara. We are really proud of our work and at the same time we are full of hope and joy by helping out this beautiful community.
