Three decades of running summer camps serves as a guarantee of quality.
The environmental educators who stay with the children and teenagers during their summer stay are professionals in education with extensive teaching experience. In the camps, we design proposals to promote a holiday environment full of fun and enjoyment. At the same time, we strive to transmit the values of respect for both people and the natural environment, with special emphasis on friendship, living together and socialization, and in this way reinforce the habits of autonomy, equality and responsibility.
Food plays a big part in the mood and capabilities of people when they are doing both physical and intellectual activities. That is why we focus on food as much as any other didactic aspect: we try to meet and educate the tastes of the group and provide them with a balanced and homemade diet made from fresh produce by our cooks.
We view the dining room as another educational space in which you learn to taste, to value the importance of a balanced diet, as well as to be aware of the socio-environmental impact of consuming local organic products. We also focus on learning to enjoy food and quiet conversation.
During the camps we design activities that generate enthusiasm and participation so that the stay is an unforgettable experience: we get to know, care for and interact with farm animals: cows, goats, chickens, horses, pigs, sheep, rabbits etc. We work in the organic garden with the soil, water, seeds, tools, and vegetables; In the healthy eating workshop we make preserves and traditional products such as cheese, butter, and jams amongst others.
In the forest workshops there is theater, art and nature, inventions made from recycled materials, music, communication, dance, astronomy, birds, evenings, games and gatherings under the light of the moon. Each participant chooses where to be, according to their interests and motivations.
The normal rhythm of each day is interrupted several times throughout the camp with special days: excursions through the natural park, Olympics, parties etc. All of this favors a cordial, stimulating and motivating atmosphere of coexistence where children and young people feel like they are the real protagonists.
