Join us for a Spring “Break” in Guatemala City March 18—25, 2017! This will be our 12th annual Alternative Spring Break, and our 10th visit to Guatemala City to be with the beautiful people of Guatemala and our wonderful friends of the clown group Fabrica de Sonrisas (Smile Makers). Each day we are invited to play, explore, dream, and learn.
A clown trip is a great opportunity to expand your idea of the world and yourself. What does it feel like to open your heart and be ready to experience the world? Register for this trip and invite change into your life! Bring your friends, siblings, cousins, or even parents!
This trip is a wonderful place to begin or continue your clowning. Bring your friends, your family, or meet new friends as you meet yourself as a clown. There will be a workshop the first day to introduce you to some tools for humanitarian clowning.
Everyone is welcome; no experience necessary. All you need to start is an open heart and a willingness to engage with others, a little red nose, and clothes as colorful as you wish!
We will be clowning for people of all ages in special needs homes, hospitals, psychiatric facilities, schools, and in elderly homes. We will continue building relationships between our clown groups and the places we visit. Over the years we have met many people working to make life better for those in their care.
Are you ready? (You can get ready as you go… ) See you there!!
We will live together in a small family-run hotel, the Museo Inn Posada Belen, where we will take meals together around a long table and have time to discuss our experiences.
The day-to-day itinerary of the trip will not be available from the Fabrica de Sonrisas coordination team until closer to March, but this is what a typical day looks like:
