“I remember when I was a kid… summer camps always fascinated me because one of my best friends went camp every year and he was always very excited. I never managed to go to camp since I became very involved in sports, specifically in soccer, representing my country in competitions around the world. However, somehow I experienced the essence of camp through experiences such as healthy competition, love for what we do and respect for my peers, experiences that helped me become the person I am today.
Now, years later, I feel happy to share a philosophy I identify myself with and I am proud to be able to contribute to this great dream that is Camp La Llanada in the United States. I am ready to give my best for our organization and leave a mark that will help future generations to follow the steps of amazing people.”

“I can say with total affirmation that my life changed in 2010 when Camp La Llanada’s project began in Florida. What started as a big dream, today is an incredible reality. There is nothing more rewarding than dedicating yourself to something that makes you really happy and I am very proud to say that I am part of an organization that makes many people happy. It is difficult to describe, I think that only those who have experienced it in their own flesh can understand it, but it is a feeling of fullness, familiarity, passion and fun that makes you get up every day and give your absolute best.
Today, our work has touched a lot people, each with a unique experience in Camp La Llanada, but there is a common factor: The quality of the people that make up this great family. Being far from our countries of origin we seek a refuge that helps us maintain our customs and roots while we develop as well rounded individuals. At Camp La Llanada we have that refuge and I am happy my family and all of yours have the opportunity to live it to the fullest.”

“More than 20 years ago, my husband and Juan Carlos Guinand decided to start a camp. At that time I had no idea what impact this would have on our lives. I spent many years working in consulting, being a witness while Juan Carlos and Keke made La Llanada grow.
Destiny led me to become a Dierctor several years ago and after living closely what camp is capable of generating in all the people involved. I decided that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. La Llanada has been a school of life, not only for my children but for my whole family, and to bring this philosophy beyond borders – to more and more people in the world – is a challenge and a privilege that excites me greatly deal.”
