ENLACES Summer Program

Fundacion Calicanto had a fun filled summer program which attended to 30 kids from the area. The one-month summer program was filled with dance, theater and circus classes, as well as guest speakers and fun-filled educational trips.
Our kids visited museums, theater plays, and had wonderful guest speakers that spoke about various themes like music, art, painting and even violence prevention in their neighborhoods.  

The most exciting excursion was to Panama’s National Library in Parque Omar. The four story library was built in 1942 and had never been visited by any of the kids in our program. The guided tour exposed the children to historic documents and a wide array of books from Panamanian and foreign authors. Right outside this library is the recreational park “Parque Omar,” in this park you can find a gym, swimming pool, tennis, baseball, basketball and football courts and great green field to enjoy the scenery. The kids enjoyed a picnic and then went on to play and fly kites, ending our summer program with excitement!
