Summer Camp Program
For the past 7 years The Esperanza Project has been running a completely free of charge day camp for local children to take part in sports, drama, music, arts & crafts and other activities throughout the summer months in the quiet, picturesque town of Cabrera on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The camp runs every Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 12:30pm. This program is run solely by a group of young, energetic volunteers (along side founders and directors, Fiona and Anthony Austin). Volunteers will be in charge of planning and leading these activity centres. Each centre will have two to three volunteer leaders and a group of roughly 15 to 20 children at a time.
When not at the camp, volunteers are free to do as they please, including several optional activities planned by The Esperanza Project each session such as volunteer baseball, volleyball, pool parties, beach days, games nights and more. There are several beautiful beaches within 20 minutes of the camp, as well as some of the world’s most stunning natural lakes and waterfalls. Within the town there are several restaurants, parks, internet cafes, and a beautiful waterfront boardwalk where volunteers can relax and enjoy their afternoons off.
The Esperanza Project’s summer camp program offers the perfect combination of helping children in need while discovering a new culture and language on this beautiful caribbean island! This will also provide an excellent addition to your resume / CV for future employment and careers.
