Cultural "Travel" Days for Kids this Summer
“Travel” through Guatemala with us this summer! Hosted at Little Guatemala, each cultural day will be dedicated to learning all about one of the incredibly unique states (called departments) in Guatemala in the most kid-friendly, accessible way possible! We will learn by tasting foods, making crafts, singing, songs, playing games, meeting neighbors, speaking Spanish, and lots of other activities.
Ages: Elementary School (5-10 years old)
Days: Every Monday this summer (except July 4)
Cost: $20/session or $150 for the whole summer
You can choose one, some, or all of the weeks that sound interesting to you and fit your schedule!
What We Do
It is our priority to bring you the best that Guatemalan coffee has to offer! Beans are sustainably sourced from the wide variety of growing regions in Guatemala. We roast in small batches to ship out and serve only the freshest products to our clients. The beans are for purchase in 16oz and 8oz bags.
If you are in or near Morganton, we would be glad to cater your events with our one of a kind coffee cart or insulated dispensers.
Cacao has played an integral role in the history of Guatemala and remains an important export to this day. We receive the cacao after it has been fermented and dried in Guatemala. Here, we roast, crack, winnow (separate out the husks), grind, temper, and mold those beans into delectable chocolate bars for you to enjoy! Currently, we offer three completely organic 2 oz bars:
- 70% Dark Chocolate - Milk Chocolate - White Chocolate
We also do seasonal treats like turtles, truffles, and barks! Keep your eyes open for more specialty chocolates!
Walking through a Guatemalan craft market is breathtaking. Colors and patterns fill each beautiful weaving, painting, and piece of pottery or jewelry. Our selection of crafts varies, so you can always find something new!
All of our products are either purchased through Fair Trade organizations with co-ops in Guatemala, directly from artisans on our trips to Guatemala, or from local Guatemalan artists or their families.
Soccer in any form is popular in Guatemala, and the quick-paced games offered on smaller fields are one of the most sought-after versions! We are so thrilled to offer a space for our community to enjoy this high-energy game. The field is the size of an elementary school basketball court (around 70ft x 40ft), covered in turf, and lined appropriately, including out-of-bounds.
Initially, guests will be able to rent time slots for practices and pick-up games, but we plan on expanding our offerings to leagues, tournaments, afterschool programs, and summer camps.
The field will be open Monday - Friday 5 - 10pm, Saturday 10am - 10pm, and closed on Sunday.
