After a tough year-and-a-half, the summer of 2021 promises a joyful return to living life to the fullest. Vida Camp is back! Day camp will run Monday – Friday, 9 am – 4 pm, from June 21 – July 9. The 3-week camp is for youth ages 5 to 13. New adventures happen each day, so campers are encouraged to attend all three weeks. Those committing to the whole season will get first priority as the camp fills up.


Paying tuition is voluntary and enrollment is free to anyone.


Summer camp is the place to make new friends, practice new skills, and take pride in doing good deeds in a fun and safe environment. Campers will team up to do rewarding work improving our community, such as harvesting produce for the pantry, working on the acequias, and mural painting downtown. We will explore our local watershed, foodshed, and culture. Activities are held mostly outdoors and will include field games, tying fishing flies, digital photography and more. Questa’s uniquely resilient lifestyle is the theme woven through it all.


Vida del Norte Coalition, Trout Unlimited, Taos Behavioral Health, Questa Farmers Market, LEAP, and Casas de Culturas are among the many partners coming together to produce Vida Camp. Do you have knowledge to share with the kids, or work that needs doing locally? Contact Camp Director Alejandro Avina at vidacamp@localogy.org.


Vida Camp will have a high staff-to-camper ratio. Activities will follow State COVID-safe guidelines. Space is limited, so sign up today: www.localogy.org/vida, or call Alejandro at (505) 573-6587.
