For three weeks during the winter school break another volunteer and myself ran a youth-camp. There were approximately 24 kids, between the ages of 7-12, with a roughly even percentage of boys and girls. We met every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between the hours of 9-12pm for a total of 9 sessions.
The cross-sector camp was a collaboration between the Health and Business sector in the department of Rivas. Covered topics included: HIV/AIDS awareness, Gender Roles in Society, Self-esteem, Communication, Manualidades, Decision Making, Planning for the future, Leadership, and Creativity.
