Live it, an exhortation to joy and profitable enjoyment is the slogan of summer 2019. The summer season, which will officially begin in Cuba this Saturday, includes in Matanzas multiple actions directed, especially, to children and young people. In this regard, the Chief of the Ideological Department of the Provincial Committee of the Union of Young Communists (UJC) Yosiel Oliver Ortega comments:
«Tomorrow, June 29th , the popular music group directed by Will Campa will offer a concert in the Plaza del Viaducto, which will represent the beginning of the holiday season in the territory. That day, in the morning hours, there will be activities for infants in the Plaza de la Vigía where community projects and local artists will participate. We also propose a very special option that will be the presentation of the children’s theater company La Colmenita in Las Brisas cultural center, also that day. The National Institute of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation will have a remarkable presence, because it will manage the realization of sports stops and games in the main parks and squares. »
During these months, traditional options will continue, such as the realization of historical routes, hiking and visits to museums, while the Youth Zone opens:
«It is an interaction space where, for example, the José Martí Art Instructors Brigade and the Marti Youth Movement will converge. Its objective is the mobilization of the neighborhood for the organization of fairs, exhibitions, concerts, excursions, among other initiatives as part of the 11th Congress of the Young Communist League”.
For its part, the movement of explorers, managed by the José Martí Pioneers Organization, intensifies its work in the months of the most intense heat. According to the technician of the Movement of Pioneer Pioneers in the province, Yasmany López Alfonso, the centers Una flor para Camilo, in the municipality of Pedro Betancourt; The golden age and Children’s Day, in Cárdenas and Horacio Rodríguez, in Limonar, are able to receive children and adolescents. They are selected based on their results in knowledge competitions and their work in the pioneer structure.
«The first of these buildings will host 80 pioneers and eight guide teachers, as well as The Golden Age. The other two have capacity for 70 students and seven teachers. »
These activities will take place from July 9 until the last week of August, during which several pioneers will have the opportunity to visit other regions of the country:
«In two moments around 130 people from Matanzas will visit the Ismaelillo national camp, in the province of Cienfuegos. Another group will enjoy a stay in the homologous institution of Camagüey, the Siboney camp, in the tourist pole of Santa Lucía and around 40 will move to the Central Palace of Pioneers Ernesto Guevara as part of a national strategy for the promotion of summer.
«The program of activities in these institutions privileges the knowledge of nature through excursions to rivers and caves, bonfire nights, among others that will depend on the creativity of teachers and students. More than 2,300 learners will have this opportunity, so generate a pleasant experience that is remembered for life and which combines fun and learning. »
Summer camps are also another attractive option. In its fourth edition in the province will participate about 400 young people. About the details of this activity that stimulates outstanding students, leaders and workers comments the member of the Bureau of the UJC Provincial Committee that attends the educational sphere, Visleidy Ramírez Brito:
«From July 18th to 22nd, the first stage will be held at its usual headquarters, the René Fraga Moreno Provincial Pedagogical School.
There will be gathered one hundred young people of distinguished trajectory as militants of the UJC and the Federation of Students of the Secondary Education. They will carry out sanitation actions, contribute to the productive development of the territory and, of course, will carry out cultural and recreational activities.
«In the month of August – from the first to the fifth – the second stage will take place with the novelty of incorporating the two centers of high education in the province: the University of Matanzas and the Medical Sciences. We currently manage the necessary resources to guarantee a happy stay in these facilities. On this occasion the exchange of participants will be made with the province of Havana.
» A summer distinguished by intelligence, good taste and diversity of proposals is the main aspiration to guarantee children, young people and the population in general a true enjoyment, accessible to all.
