This year's summer camp at the School of Champions started off at 10 am with around 130 kids from the neighborhood enrolling in the 4 week camp. After breakfast at the camp, the children signed up for classes and activities; arts and crafts, library and videos, computers, indoor games and soccer and basketball.
After lunch at 2 pm, a group of about 30 loaded in the vans for swimming from 3 to 5 pm at a local private recreation center. Each Monday, the kids sign up for another group of classes. Each Wednesday, 30 plus kids are off to see the local zoo in Mismaloya.
After two weeks, the camp and the kids are going strong. However, the finances to support the camp for the last two weeks are missing. We need you to help us continue for the remainder of the camp by supporting one or more children.
For $25 US you will support a camper for the entire 4 weeks. Without your help, the children will not be able to continue in the camp and will go back to their previous summer vacation activities; hanging around the dirt streets and trying to stay out of trouble.
Please, help a child this Summer. For more information, or to learn how you can help, please visit FeedTheChildrenVallarta.com or contact Arthur Fumerton at ArthurEFumerton(at)Yahoo.com.
