The Education and Youth Councillor of Fuerteventura's Cabildo, María Jesús de la Cruz, saluted the group of children who participated in the second session of the camp while they were visiting the Nautical School of Puerto del Rosario. . The objective of Campamento Perinquén 2019 is to offer leisure activities during the summer to children of the island while helping the conciliation of the family, work and personal lives of families. The TAFOR Canarias Group, the entity contracted to animate the camps, consists of a technical team and specialised instructors who get involved directly with the processes of cohabitation and non-formal-education through a varied programme of activities related to nature and the enjoyment of the environment, teamwork, cohabitation and healthy lifestyle habits. Participants, therefore, took part of activities during the camps such as workshops, games and dynamics with immersion in the English language that also included days at the beach, museums' visits, nautical activities, as well as environment or equality workshops that were animated by some of the island's associations.
