Campamento 2021 Update/Help Wanted

Update on Campamento 2021

You probably guessed by now that we are not traveling to Azua this year, either, but there will be camp the first week in August.

When Covid hit Dominican Republic, the schools were closed until November 1, pushing the end date to July 30. So, the girls will only have one month of summer break. Sister Sandra decided to have camp that first week, then send them home from 3 weeks.

The CDC and the Archdiocese both strongly urge us to not travel there this summer. Although people can go as individuals of course, we did not want to go against recommendations and risk anyones’ health.

Camp will go on, though! One of the Sisters at the Hogar also teaches Bible study to a group of young women in the community. They will lead camp.

How we can help:

  • The first thing is to email lesson plans to the Sisters so they have a jump start. I thought it would make sense for the group of young people to come up with crafts and shop for them based on their interests, etc.
  • Send a donation to help offset their campamento costs and help them buy new shoes and uniforms.

Rejected ideas were:

  • Find a theme song, given the leaders, I think the theme song should be in Spanish. And, given that they are younger and will know better then us, they can choose that.
  • I thought it would make sense for the group of young people to come up with crafts and shop for them based on their interests, etc.

So, the ask is for two roles – I’m hoping for a team consisting of one each.

  • Take ~1-2 hours to research one of the women (there are 4 total). I have some more specific ideas and an example. So, please contact me if you’re willing to do this.
  • Translate what the researcher found. You’d work together to get the translation correct.

Please contact me if you’re interested. I’m hoping to get something together over the next two weeks-by June 20.

Thank you!

Ann
