¿Qué es Camp Tabonuco?

Camp Tabonuco es un programa educativo ambiental que busca promover la conexión de los jóvenes con la naturaleza de nuestra isla y desarrollar las herramientas necesarias para convivir con responsabilidad y conciencia. Nuestra meta es ofrecer un ambiente seguro y dinámico donde los jóvenes puedan cultivar verdadera plenitud y crecimiento personal a través de proyectos grupales y sana convivencia. Somos un campamento con cuatro años de experiencia educando a jóvenes en Agroecología, Arte, Construcción, Educación Ambiental, y muchos temas integrados a estas disciplinas. Para conocer más puede visitar www.camptabonuco.com o nuestra página de facebook: Camp Tabonuco


¿Qué necesitamos?

Con el paso del huracán María las facilidades del campamento se vieron sumamente afectados. Perdimos la estructura de La Glorieta, las cabañas de hospedaje sufrieron daños, hubo pequeños deslizamientos alrededor de la finca y los caminos se erosionaron. Llevamos varios meses trabajando, recogiendo y reciclando material para reconstruir el campamento y ponerlo al día, a fuerza de amigas/os y voluntarias/os quienes nos han ayudado físicamente y desde afuera. Sin embargo, necesitamos su ayuda para poder comprar algunos materiales que faltan para poder funcionar.

En febrero comenzaremos a recibir grupos nuevamente, y vemos algunas necesidades por cubrir y se nos hace difícil el acceso. Por este medio solicitamos su donación para comprar materiales y herramientas necesarias, pero también estamos abiertos a donaciones directas, no tan solo monetarias. 


Necesidades / Materiales

- paneles de madera tratada 

- madera 2 x 4, 2 x 6

- clavos, tornillos, goznes grandes

- soga

- walkie-talkies

- cemento, mezclalista

- asada, pala

- ollas y otros utensilios de cocina

Cualquier pregunta o ideas déjenos saber 

¡GRACIAS!

What is Camp Tabonuco? 

Camp Tabonuco is an environmental education program for youth that promotes a conection between nature in Puerto Rico while developing the appropriate tools and skills to coexist and live resposibly and sustainably. Our mission is to empower Puerto Rican youth with transformative learning experiences that cultivate social and ecological awareness and stewardship, in a safe environment. We believe that people, communities, and environments mutually benefit each other's health. Our organization adheres to the personal values of integrity and self‐sufficiency, the community values of cooperation and collaboration, and the environmental values of sustainability and ecological literacy in our administrative, programming, and collaborative work. Our program includes but is not limited to, workshops in Agroecology, Art, Building, Sustainable Living, and integration of multiple disciplines.

What do we need? 

In the wake of Hurricaines Irma and María, we still see the effects. Our structural facilities were gravely affected. We lost the Glorieta (our main activity center), the cabins are still standing, but need repair, there were minor landslides around camp and the roads eroded. We have been working non-stop for four months, cleaning, reusing, recycling what we can, and dumping debris that flew from all over. This has all been done out of love, thanks to the work of our staff and community, and many volunteers that have helped in camp and from outside. But we need your help to buy some materials to get things ready for this new year. In february we will start receiving groups and visitors, and are asking for some donations to cover needs that still exist in camp. We ask that you chip in however you can, either with concrete donations, sharing this crowdfund or money to cover these modest needs. 

Tools / Supplies

- wood panels

- 2 x 4's, 2 x 6's

- nails, screws, hinges

- building materials in general

- tents

- sleeping bags

- walkie talkies

- cement, quickrete

- hoe, pickaxe

- kitchen tools

Any questions or ideas, let us know

THANK YOU!
