Yesterday our group volunteered from 8:30-12:00 at a 2-week camp for 5-12 year old kids from the village of Huacas run by an organization called CEPIA. We helped with the different activities that were planned for the day, which included dance, English, soccer, and arts and crafts. We also joined the mindful and reflection circles at the start and end of the day. Many of the students who are attending the camp are from families struggling with poverty. The camp is one of CEPIA’s many programs to help those families. CEPIA stands for Culture, Education, and Psychology for Infants and Adolescents. It is a non-profit organization which has several locations across Costa Rica. You can read more about their programs at http://www.cepiacostarica.org/en/ and you can also find them on Facebook. We weren’t allowed to take photos while we were working with the children yesterday, but we all had an amazing experience working with the students.
