Vacaciones Útiles

It’s summer vacation south of the equator, which means Intiwawa transforms from an after-school program to an AM summer camp. We are currently in the second full week of programming, and are very happy to share the classes and activities our volunteers have organized for Intiwawa’s summer students :).

Each child picks two classes to enroll in on weekday mornings — the first from 9:30-10:30 and the second from 10:30-11:30. After the second class, we wash-up and gather for a midday snack. The children choose from three different classes during the first block and three different classes during the second block; all led by one or two volunteers :). We offer:

  • Cooking (where participants help prepare the meal we will eat later)
  • Ai Kido
  • Drawing I, Drawing II
  • Photography
  • Vocation
  • Storytelling
  • Sports
  • Gymnastics
  • Messy Arts (painting, collage, sculpture…)
  • Sign Language
  • English
  • Dance
  • Self-Reflection
  • Jewelry Making

At the end of each week we brainstorm new ideas for classes and workshops 😉

Spotlight: Taller de Fotografía

Take a look at some of the awesome pictures our students took in the photography class, led by Marion and Tad. The students broke up into groups of three and walked around San Isidro, looking for inspiring landscapes and objects. At the end of Vacaciones, each participant will choose a series of photos to showcase in a gallery space in the center of Arequipa.
