the Summer Camp for Children from Banderas Bay Comes to an End While Preparing for the Next Academic Year, 2017-2018

03 / Aug / 2017

Banderas Bay, Nayarit, August 3rd, 2017 - The Delia Morán Vidanta Foundation–a non-profit organization under Grupo Vidanta–concluded its summer camp where 80 children from the community of Las Jarretaderas in Banderas Bay, Nayarit, participated.

Almost four years after its founding, the Delia Morán Vidanta Foundation concluded one more cycle through which it was able to promote learning and knowledge in the local community.

"This is the first summer camp that focuses on the needs of the community in Jarretaderas. We have been searching for a way to thank the community that we call home because a very large number of its residents have limited resources," said Isabel Arana, director of the Delia Morán Vidanta Foundation.

The camp started on July 24th and offered such services for participating children as lunch, transportation, health care, medical insurance, and supplies for all activities.

"During the summer camp, we taught 80 kids, which is full capacity; the age range to participate in the camp spans from 6 to 12 years old. We are very happy to have been able to accomplish another one of our dreams," says Isabel Arana.

Today, the foundation is funded by Grupo Vidanta and the generous donations of guests of the Vidanta resorts, who may also visit the facilities during their vacations.

After four years, the organization counts 56 children that graduated from their complete course offerings. Isabel Arana notes that the relationship doesn’t end once students graduate. "We are working on a graduate program that allows us to continue supporting these students because even after they leave they are still part of our family."

Arana added that on August 7th, classes will resume for their regular courses. They expect to admit around 60 more children in addition to their re-entries, which makes for a grand total of 180 kids that will attend the program during the whole cycle.

"After this academic year, we will have reached more than 500 kids that have benefited from our programs," says Isabel Arana.

The Delia Morán Vidanta Foundation is one of the initiatives that Grupo Vidanta has taken on as a part of their social responsibility policy. Through this organization, they aim to contribute to the development of local children, preparing them for a happy future full of opportunities.

This nonprofit foundation is dedicated to instilling human values and skills in children with limited resources through academic activities that include arts and sports as part of their education.

Esta fundación sin fines de lucro está dedicada a inculcar valores humanos y a desarrollar habilidades en los niños de bajos recursos mediante actividades educativas que incluye el arte y el deporte como parte de la formación de los menores.
