Chascomus, Argentina. In South America it is vacation time and so the Zingirako Euskaldunak Basque club has opened the application period for the IV edition of Udaleku – summer camp – geared for children between the ages of 11 and 16. The camp will take place between January 4th and 8th in Chascomus, and with 20 participants already enrolled, the organizers have extended the deadline to December 13th, so that anyone who really wants to participate gets the chance to do so.
During the five days of camp, the children will participate in different activities linked to the Basque culture. Each day, participants will take part in classes and workshops in pelota, rowing, Basque dance, music, language, and traditional Basque games. All of the activities will be run by locals as well as people from the Basque Country, namely from “Txatxilipurdi elkartea’ of Arrasate, Gipuzkoa.
A month away from the fourth edition of Udaleku, the Basque club would like to express its thanks and appreciation to the Provincial Government of Gipuzkoa, especially to Ikerne Badiola, Deputy of Culture, and to Roke Akizu Director of External Relations and Tourism, for their confidence in the project.
The cost of Udaleku 2012 will be $350 per participant, unless living more than 500 kms from Chascomus, and in that case the tuition cost will be $250. Registration will be confirmed once the $100 deposit is received. All deposits should be made following the steps outlined below:
1) Deposits should be made to the following Basque club account: Banco de la Provinica de Buenos Aires Account # Nº6942-7322/8
2) Once the deposit has been made, the receipt needs to be faxed to the following number: 02241 - 430334 or 02241 - 431042 including the name, or names of the participants.
3) Email the completed application so that the organizers have all of the information required prior to Udaleku. However, the form will need to be turned in at the beginning of camp with the parents’ signature.
