CG: R.Evolución Latina's D2GB Camp Concludes at El Museo del BarrioJuly 22, 2011 - by NYC News Desk
The 4th Annual D2GB Children's Performing Arts Camp is coming to a close! After an inspiring four days at Pearl Studios, there's only one day left and it's time to celebrate the growth of our campers as they share what has been learned over the course of the camp.
We are extremely proud of this year's camp. Through the arts, R.Evolución Latina empowered over 150 children to challenge themselves to reach new heights. Using a unique array of programs we incorporated an awareness of healthy living. Fresh fruit was provided each morning and throughout the day to keep the campers energized. As we explored the benefits of physical activity, each camper was given a jump rope to take home with them as a fun way to continue their physical activity after the camp has finished. R.Evolución Latina also donated 200 copies of "Dare to Go Beyond: The Album" so that the campers can dance and sing to inspiring music in their own homes as they continue to grow.
Tomorrow we will continue to educate through the arts as we travel to El Museo del Barrio. Each camper will have the opportunity to visit this beautiful museum as we come together for a final celebration. The children will have the opportunity to step on stage inside the theater (many for the first time ever) as they share some of the highlights from the last week of classes.
