Summer Camp is Back at the Entreamigos Community Center

San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico – Entreamigos began in 2006 on a kitchen table in the middle of a San Pancho street. Today, housed in a giant warehouse recognized as a model sustainable facility, it is an active community center with classes and workshops, a scholarship program, a bilingual library for children and adults, a computer center, an extensive recycling program, a gift store and the Recicla thrift shop.

Here’s the latest news from Entreamigos:

We are so excited to announce that we will be holding summer camp this year at Entreamigos, after two years of it being suspended!

This means that we are looking for volunteers to teach a summer camp workshop. Do you have a skill that you always wanted to share with the kids of San Pancho? Now is your chance! It can be anything – art and crafts, surfing, cooking, sports, gardening, circus, dance… the possibilities are endless. Our philosophy is that everyone has something to teach and everyone has something to learn. So please come and share what you know with our community. For more information about being a summer camp workshop teacher, please email us at info(at)entreamigos.org.mx.

A HUGE thank you to Globe Life to providing partial scholarships to over 100 campers this year! We are incredibly grateful for your support!

Do you have kiddos that you would like to enroll in camp? We can’t wait have them! Open enrollment will be held at Entreamigos on July 25th and 26th from 2-5 pm. Camp starts on August 1st and goes for two weeks! See you soon!

Literary Week was Magical

We are filled with happiness and gratitude for all of the creative and fun events that happened during our 8th Annual Literary Week! We received a total of 1,223 students from San Pancho, Sayulita and San Ignacio who participated in morning field trips to Entreamigos where they participated in different literary workshops.

Additionally, we had a Literary Scavenger Hunt, Adult Poetry Night, Stories Around the Campfire Night with pizza and a gorgeous closing ceremony with presentations for three of our local schools. Over 60 children participated in our after-school classes of book making, storytelling, illustration and crafts.
