Experience in Camp La Llanada:

“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.”

Experience in Camp La Llanada:

“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.”

Experience in Camp La Llanada:

“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.”
