I wish you could see me jumping up and down as I share with you that I will be presenting at the 2010 Latin America Heritage Camp in Colorado!!!
"Latin American Heritage Camp in Colorado is one of the few camps of its kind in the country, designed specifically for families with children adopted from Central and South America, as well as those of Latino heritage adopted within the United States. It is one of ten camps facilitated by the highly respected Colorado Heritage Camps, Inc."
The plan is to give a 1 hour 15 minute workshop and also a meeting/presentation with parents with teenager girls on how to plan a Quinceañera.
The workshop`s topic is not yet defined, I need your help!!! This year`s topic is Latin American Adventures. Some ideas I have are:
1. Semana Santa, this is the number one holiday in Guatemala: a mosaic of the traditions, food, history, etc wrapping up making a traditional sawdust rug.
2. A flight over the country showcasing all the natural diversity: The jungle and rainforest North, the desert East, the highlands West, the tropical forest and Beach South and build a map as the hands on activity.
3. Guatemalan`s textiles by region, how they are made, etc
4. Guatemala today, universities, schools, hospitals, political and economic situation, what young people do, opportunities to serve, employment, etc...
WHAT DO YOU THINK????
