Who we are & what we do
Our staff is a professional team composed of counselors who are highly experienced in the management of groups, especially children. They are willing to give their best to ensure that campers get an unforgettable experience. In order to be updated, we make sure we are in constant training, especially those counselors who are in charge of water activities like ski, canoeing and sailing which are always supervised personally by Rodrigo my son, and me.

The Summer Camp Guaikinima
Guaikinima ( why- kee- ni-ma, "In search of freedom” in Venezuelan indian dialect), is based on the complementary development of the child who, while being in contact with nature, away from everyday life, will be living new experiences and developing new skills that will teach them valuable knowledge for their personal growth.
El GURU de Summer Camps: Raymond Cidad - Yo Trabajo Divirtiéndome.
An Adventure Summer Camp run by an expert Guru in Camps and Adventures: Raymond Cidad!
Few dedicate their lives to Summer Camps and fortunately I am one of them! I work having fun In Summer Camps, I have dreamed them, devised, designed, built and managed over 30 years. And I have a lot of passion for what I do because I deeply believe in the need for our children to learn to handle themselves independently in natural, challenging and controlled environments.
The unforgettable and transcendental experience that children and young people gain by living together with friends and councelors, "away from home" and without the direct influence of their parents is fundamental to growth, empowerment and maturity in their lives.
I actively participate with the campers in the activities because it allows me to know them better and to support them in their experience in the camp.
