Campamento 2020 Day 1

17 Jun

Day 1 of Campamento 2020 looks like other years – with no Americans. Like a mom as her kids get older and more independent, I am so proud yet a trifle sad that we’re missing the fun! They had opening ritual and the stations. Here are the pictures. Be sure to scroll to the bottom for some bonus content!

Opening Ritual

What I love – some are wearing their camp shirts. They look so calm. The hulu hoop rack!

Jesus is the light of the world. A light no one can put out.

Math Station

English Station

I’m just so proud of them – the older girls earnestly teaching the younger ones.

Craft Station

We usually leave behind some extra supplies. We use them the next year at camp. Sister Fifi and I agreed that they should open the suitcases and use what’s there!

These are the pictures Sister Fifi sent me. I also received a video of “N” reading off the groups and the “profesoras” for each station. I also got nice audio recordings from “G” and Sister Grace – who lived in NYC and speaks English. I couldn’t download them to share, though.


As if all this was not enough for one day, Miss Barbara Owens sent me this interview of her. She shares her thoughts and experiences on the special challenges black and brown families face during COVID as well as how we white people can be allies to others. Check it out!
