Back to Vida—Day Camp Open
Vida Camp is back in 2021 with day camp running Monday through Friday, 9 to 4. The three-week camp is for 5- to 13-year old youth. Paying tuition is voluntary and enrollment is free to anyone. Sessions will run weekdays June 21st through July 9th.
New adventures happen each day, so campers are encouraged to attend all three weeks and those committing to the whole season will get first priority as the camp fills up.
After a tough year and a half, the summer of 2021 promises a joyful return to living life to the fullest. Summer camp is the place to make new friends, practice new skills, and take pride in doing good deeds in a fun and safe environment. Vida Camp explores our local watershed, foodshed and culture. Questa's very own day camp started in 2019 with building the Farmers Market site, and will reach farther into the community this summer.
The day camp is based at the Questa Youth & Family Center. From there, campers will be transported to local farms to learn and help out, or to hike by our scenic rivers to fish and play in the water. A wide variety of activities are planed from field games, to tying fishing flies, to digital photography. The one theme woven through the whole program is Questa's uniquely resilient lifestyle. Campers will team up to do rewarding work improving our community such as working on the acequias, harvesting produce for the pantry, and mural painting downtown.
Vida Del Norte Coalition, Trout Unlimited, Taos Behavioral Health, Questa Farmers Market, LEAP, and Casas de Culturas are among the many partners coming together to produce Vida Camp. Other entities or individuals who have knowledge to share with the kids, or work that needs doing locally are encouraged to contact Camp Director, Alejandro Avina @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vida Camp will have a high staff to camper ratio. Activities will be mostly outdoors and will follow State Covid guidelines. Space is limited, sign up today: www.localogy.org/vida , or call Alejandro @ (505) 297-9250.
