DIAMANT, Ana. Génesis y continuidad de un proyecto de educación no formal en el tiempo libre: Testimonios de 60 años de la colonia Zumerland en Argentina. Hist. educ. anu. [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.2, pp.00-00. ISSN 2313-9277.

Zumerland summer camp was created 60 years ago by progressive Jewish immigrants and immigrants' children who came from Central Europe. The purpose was to have a space to preserve culture and tradition in order to complement those proposed by language schools, setting the incoorporation of new skills related to outdoor life, the experience of self-sufficiency and the training of its own teachers. It constituted an advanced project and experience in the field of non-formal education. The proposal for children and teenagers, which involved living together for 20 days a year, away from their families and surrounded by nature, presented both a pedagogical and an institutional challenge that was overcome in the beginning with volunteerism and political activism, and, from the sixties on, with the contributions made by Social Sciences professionals and by activists. The ideological commitment and the alliances with other progressive sectors of society made Zumerland the target of persecution, which led to the destruction of a large amount of its archives. The retrieval of different testimonies has enabled the recovery of information that contributes not only to the reconstruction of the whole experience but also to an important chapter in the recent history of education.

Palabras clave : Non-formal education; Ideological stamp; Pedagogical and political proposal; Community experience; Testimonies retrieval.
