We´ve had so much excitement happening over the past few months, but we wanted to take a minute to share the experiences of our second group of children at Niños del Lago. Once again campers joined us from the Guatemala City NGO, Boys Hope, Girls Hope (Esperanza Juvenil), for a four-day adventure at our beautiful site near San Andres Semetebaj, overlooking Lake Atitlan. Forty four children experienced the wonder of sleeping in our colorful cabins, alongside the growing 'El Nido' (nest), main building.

Phase II Construction of the El Nido building has officially begun!!  The completion of El Nido is crucial to the opening of Camp Ninos del Lago.  This two-story building contains various important facilities, like the dining halls, kitchen, meeting areas, bath houses, medical station, counselor’s break area, laundry and secure storage space. These facilities are completely necessary in order to provide the right experience to the children that attend camp at Ninos del Lago.

The educational volunteers at Ninos del Lago have been working steadily on creating the specific, day to day activities of the camp experience that will inspire Guatemalan children.  We want the daily activities to make the right impact on these children so that when they leave, they are changed positively and motivated to come back the following year.

The Holland Team - On A Mission

Submitted by Ninos_del_Lago_Team on

Ninos del Lago is often astounded at the amazing, skilled, passionate people that we find to volunteer for our organization.  We have so many qualified people working so hard, that there’s little room to doubt that our organization is and will be hugely successful.  And the epitome of a fantastic group of people getting things done is our fundraising group in Holland.  In the last few months alone, they’ve managed to raise more than $10,000 for Ninos del Lago.  We couldn’t be more grateful for their hard work and dedication.
