“Bringing children a pack of colored pencils and a piece of paper may seem simple, but it has an incredibly powerful influence.”
- Peace Corps Education Volunteer Margaret Bridges

Arts and crafts in Belize - 2009
Peace Corps Volunteers Caryn Steinbrecher and Leslie W. Stewart IV organized a youth leadership camp called “Super Vacaciones” in Nicaragua. Twenty-four kids, between the ages of 7-12, participated in the camp, which covered topics including: HIV/AIDS awareness, teenage pregnancy prevention, gender roles, self-esteem development, life skills planning, leadership, and creativity. The goal of the camp was to provide students with an intellectually stimulating environment, which incorporated physical, creative, and thought provoking activities.
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.
