Puerto offers free summer fun for local children
Puerto de la Cruz is putting on a summer programme of events for youngsters.
Children between four and 12 can enjoy free educational and leisure activities, thanks to the local council.
This programme has been arranged by the children’s service of the Social Welfare Area and thanks to the agreements signed with Ecca and the la Caixa Foundation, through the “Caixa Proinfancia Program”.
All these activities are free of charge and for this purpose children from the tourist municipality have been selected.
“We are very happy with the acceptance of the summer activities, since all places were covered in record time,” said the head of the Social Welfare Area, Victor Manuel Cabo.
He said it was essential for youngsters to enjoy complementary activities in the summer, to educate them in values without losing sight of the fun and in the same way, help families to enjoy a fun-educational summer.
The Summer Colonies will be attended by 20 children who will develop different recreational and sports activities, as well as excursions and breakfasts, aimed at creative and positive leisure. These will be in mid-July in the morning from Monday to Friday, for six hours daily.
There will also be a Summer Camp, to be held in the municipality of Sauzal, where six children between the ages of six and 18 will attend, in the second week of August.
The Caixa Proinfancia Program has also granted scholarships to five children who will enjoy Campus C.D. Tenerife, with football tuition tailored to each participant. This is in July.
CEIP César Manrique will organise an Urban Camp from July 1st to 30th, in collaboration with the Social Welfare Area and basketball team U.B. Puerto Cruz. Here, 50 children can enjoy handicraft, theatre, sports and education in values.
To qualify for a place in these camps, the area of Social Welfare offers applicants the following telephone number 620 115 948.
