Páramo Ridge was founded by adventure-couple, Gabriel and Kristie Suarez. Gabriel, a native Colombian born in Norway and raised in England, is a master of fun! He has worked in summer camps in the United States and England serving as a camp counselor, wakeboarding, kayaking, archery and wilderness instructor. Kristie, is a logistics guru, planning and implementing safe programs for large groups of children. Additionally, she has worked as a camp counselor, swim instructor and event planner. Gabriel and Kristie have lived in twelve different countries where they have learned the importance of cross-cultural experiences and the power of the English language to build friendships, seek employment and be more confident travelers – all required for our growing, global society.
Páramo Ridge collaborates with schools to create an English Immersion Cultural week or on-site day camps. Schools, parents and -students are guaranteed a fully English immersive experience tailored to their language department’s objectives. All program activities are outside of the classroom using real life problem solving and play skills
