Children's Camp at a Spiritan Mission
San Juan de la Maguana, Dominican Republic
Students will run a day camp for children in barrio Villa Liberacion. While a prime focus of the trip is to run the day camp, a great deal of time is spent engaging in Dominican culture. Students and Dominican teens share food, music, and dance throughout the week. The group is able to take in the sights of San Juan de la Maguana and learn about the rich history of the area.
Our partner for this experience is the Spiritan Parish of Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza (Our Lady of Hope) Parish. We work together with the Spiritan priest and teens of the parish youth group to facilitate the camp and create murals the brighten the parish center areas.
Students attending this SME are responsible for obtaining personal passports, immunizations and required clearances necessary for this trip.
August--Time and Date TBA
