Campamento Vacacional San Clemente is a new arts and culture summer camp in the indigenous  Kichwa-Karanki community of San Clemente, Ecuador. The camp is a space where the community participates in the education of its children and the reconstruction and representation of its heritage. We welcome sixty students, and with the support of local youth leaders and assistant leaders, visiting volunteers and guest instructors, we offer traditional artisanship, games, music and food, language learning, painting, photography, theatre, creative writing and storytelling and hikes and excursions. We are proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and we are looking forward to what next summer will bring.

Thanks for visiting!
