'Fantastic People' Chosen as Theme for 2013 Los Mangos Library Summer Courses

June 14, 2013

The world is a space where a surprising amount of different, interesting, and talented people live. People who dream, construct and give their time and work to help those who are less fortunate. People who give their knowledge and effort to preserve natural resources or save animals. People who make music, make us smile with a song or an applause. People who live teaching others how to take care and enjoy what the planet gives us. They’re strong, weak, big, small, young and old people. There’s an infinite amount of people, but something that all of them have in common, everyone including you and me, is that they are fantastic people.

This is the premise of the 2013 Los Mangos Library Summer Course.

It will be four wonderful weeks where there will be dozens of activities related to the arts, culture, and environmental conservation, as well as recreational novelties that stimulate team-work, patience and the tenacity to achieve their goals and, above all, to learn from others in a festive environment of respect and cooperation.

The course has three specific objectives:

1. Send a positive message to boys and girls. Make them feel like and make them know that they are fantastic people.

2. Make them conscious through super fun activities about other equally fantastic people, in spite of their limitations.

3. Encourage them to create a vision of a fantastic future where they can contribute with their grain of sand to improve our world.

Among other activities, we’ll have singing, music and dance with the teacher Alexa Mozqueda (singer, dancer and actress. Currently Los Mangos Library dance initiation class teacher.) Drawing, painting, engraving, mural, modelling, etc. lead by Claudia Vázquez (self-taught artist and graphic designer. Children’s painting class teacher during recent years) and gardening taught by Camila Aguirre (ecologist and member of the musical duet Frixoleros).

There will be a pool and three theme-centered camp nights: Disco night, Talent-show night and Costumes night.

This year we’ll also have Gymkana, a rally-type activity that’s really fun.

Finally, the participation of civil associations such as Fundación Down, the CANICA program, Impulso de Águila, H. Cuerpo de Bomberos (Firemen) and others stand out.
