What do the campers say?
Paula and Pol, Summer 2021
Fun and Learn is definitely the best part of my summers since I first attended in 2015. The camps are a lot of fun and a great way to make new friends. I have been to five summer camps in total and I can’t wait for it to be summer again!! Every day at camp is full of activities and good times, while I improve my English. We speak English during conversation and the workshops, but also in the outdoor activities and the night games. And with no grammar books around!

The first time I went to Fun&learn I was a super shy-seven-years-old-girl who didn’t know a word in English, and, to be honest, I was terrified about the idea of going to camp. Now, fourteen years later, when I think about it, I’m amazed about everything I’ve gained throughout these years… As a camper in Castellar de N’hug, I made lots of friends and I started to relate English to the fun experiences I lived at camp. As a camper in the States, I realized I was capable of understanding and communicating myself in English, I tried out climbing and a bunch of other sports I had never thought I would like but I ended up loving them, moreover, I made a group of friends with whom I’m still in touch (actually, we meet every time they come to Barcelona or I go to Boston). As a CIT, the shyness that used to define me disappeared and I was suddenly capable of talking in public (and in English), that summer I also realized how much I enjoy working with kids. Last but not least, as a counselor, I’ve made friends from all around the world (USA, New Zealand, Ireland, England…) and I feel extremely lucky to have a job that I love and that I share year after year with a team of counselors who always end up becoming friends.

I’m Jan and I can almost be considered a veteran of Fun and Learn. I started going to the summer camp in Castellar de n’Hug when I was 15. Someone had recommended me to go as a camper and I enjoyed it so much that when I was asked if I wanted to go back next summer as a CIT I said yes without doubting. Being a CIT for two years was really fun, but I also grew up a lot to become the counselor I am now. It’s been four years since I became a counselor and I have enjoyed Summer Camps, Day Camps, Easter Camps and even going to the United States. The camp there is a whole different experience, with a huge beautiful campsite and a connection with nature difficult to find here. I have travelled to Boston three times with Fun and Learn because every year I kept asking to go back, as well as I keep going back to work as a counselor whenever I can because I feel like I belong there, teaching, learning and having fun with the kids and enjoying an experience that can’t be found anywhere else.

Per a nosaltres, l’experiència de participar en el camp d’Estats Units ha
estat molt positiva. Un dels objectius és millorar anglès però hi ha altres
aspectes tant o més importants en aquesta etapa/experiència com són
conviure amb persones d’una altra cultura, desenvolupar l’autonomia
personal i gaudir de l’estiu.
Aquestes colònies aconsegueixen complir amb tots els objectius, tot en
un entorn fantàstic i amb bons professionals.
Poder dir que després haver repetit l’experiència diverses vegades, ha
estat una satisfacció poder oferir al nostre fill aquesta enriquidora vivència
i de ben segur que l’acompanyarà en el record del seu creixement
Fun and Leard, una gran família !!!

Hi everyone! I’m Edgard and I’m 24 years old. I have a degree in Biological sciences, but I already loved outdoor activities long time before I chose my career. This was partly due to my time spent in Fun & Learn camps. I started as a 9-year-old camper in Castellar de n’Hug. I wasn’t sure if I could cope with the “English only rule”. So, I ended up spending 2 summers in the camp in Catalonia and then, 3 more in the summer camp in the US. I didn’t notice how much I loved this experience until I left. Some years later, I was still part of this family, Cesc and Maira knew it so they contacted me. I got my counselor’s license and came back for 2 more years. Different places but same atmosphere. Where I’ve met lots of interesting and funny people, kids included! Therefore, I must say that Fun and Learn taught me different and important values from different points of view. Not only as a little camper, but as a counselor too. And not only because of their great staff, but thanks to the kids that want to come every year.

Hi there! I’m Mariona and I’m 23 years old. I’m from Barcelona and I’m currently studying medicine. My adventure with Fun and Learn started many years ago when I was a little camper of 11 years old and I decided to go to this summer camp. I was a camper for two summers in a row and it was really awesome to meet new friends and learn English while playing, singing and having lots of fun at camp. Many years later I got my counselor’s license and I contacted Cesc and Maira “cause I was really excited to become part of this family”. I’ve been working as a counselor for three years with them and I had an amazing time with this crew. Fun and Learn will always be a very special place to me!

This is my first year involved with Fun and Learn, I participated as a Counselor in the Summer camps. I really enjoyed my time at Fun and Learn, because I felt like I was part of a big family, with special bonds amongst all the kids and counselors.

CONSELLS PER FER LA MILLOR MOTXILLA O MALETA
Your child is the camper so let him or her pack his or her backpack. From Fun and Learn you will receive a list of items according to the program your camper will join. We suggest that you with your camper decide what items to take and place everything on a table or bed. Then write together a shopping list for camping items that you are missing, do the shopping together and once you have all your camper will need let him/her put things inside the backpack or suitcase. Your advice may be helpful for your camper but notice that he/she will not be with you once he/she joins the camp and he/she should be able to remember and organize his/her items on his/her own.
