A little bit about Paraiso/Rio Seco!

Río Seco is a small town of about 400 people near the Guanacaste coast. The JumpStart camp in this site will be composed of students from three communities: 27 de Abril, Paraíso, and Río Seco. Both of the camp facilitators also reside in these communities. 20 students, 15 girls and 5 boys, will be attending the camp.

The students from this area have a multitude of opportunities to use English around their communities due to the tourism industry. Río Seco has a large zip lining business that employs people in the area. The participating students all look forward to improving their English during the camp in order to built a strong foundation for high school. Eventually, these students aspire to find high paying jobs with their English skills.
