Niños del Lago is a non-profit organization that works to give Guatemalan children the support, tools and experiences they will need to care for themselves and for Guatemala’s future.
Based in Panajachel, we aim to provide hope and opportunity to vulnerable Guatemalan children through an annual educational and mentoring experience at our inspirational forest camp overlooking Lake Atitlán in the beautiful Guatemalan Highlands.
When the site is fully operational, 9–12 year old children will stay for an invigorating week each year in a safe environment. Up to 75 children each week will relax, eat well and gain valuable and positive experiences through games, creative activities and by learning to be mindful.
Niños del Lago’s camp is a special place that nurtures self-respect, self-awareness and cultural pride. It is a place where children are empowered to carry on positive traditions and learn new ways to help their communities, their country and our planet.
Construction of our camp continues and we are closer to full-scale operations. The gates to Niños del Lago's forest camp are almost open! If you would like to play a huge part in Niños del Lago, you can make a one-time or monthly donationNiños del Lago.
