Join us for the experience of a lifetime! At Fun and Learn we offer a coed camp for Fun and Learning. It’s an international camp where we join different cultures from all over the world.
¿WHAT ACTIVITIES DO WE ORGANIZE?
Every day, in small groups, we combine 3 hours of speaking class to reinforce the language (English, Spanish or Catalan) with activities such as: swimming pool, kayaking, biking, excursions, games, group activities, horses, songs, archery, geocaching, dance, arts and crafts, theatre, one night camping…
and also there are 2 excursions. The first week we go to “el bosc elàstic” in Espinelves and the second week we go to the beach
During the hot Summer Days we are going to swim in the swimming pool. Every day there are organized activities:
aquagym, aerobic, sports, games, videos and photos under the water…
During the Summer Camp we have our horses: Blanca and Estrella. Two horses used to be with children.
During the Summer Camp we are going to walk them, to comb their hairs, to put the saddle and we are going to horseback riding.
It is a first contact with the horses.
EXCURSIONS BY BUS
The first week we are going to the water resort in Cercs and to “el bosc elàstic” in Espinelves.
The second week we are going to the beach and to Castelldefels Olympic Channel.
DURING CONVERSATION TIME, CAN MY CHILD PRACTICE ENGLISH, SPANISH OR CATALAN?
The spoken language during the day is English.
International campers can decide what language they want to practice during the daily three hours of language conversation (English, Spanish or Catalan).
We do not use grammar books and we believe in the natural way of learning with the linguistic immersion.
We look for the motivation to keep learning the language.
In Fun and Learn we know that during camp days we have under our responsability the most important of a family. Our counselors team is strictly chosen.
In all our programs we follow the Generalitat de Catalunya law and our ratio is 1 counselor per 6/7 kids.
Our counselors are native speakers, except the ones who by law have to have the Generalitat de Catalunya degree. Those are English translators, English teachers or English bachelors degree
All the counselors are specially trained and have the knowledge to garantee the three main goals of Fun and Learn:
your child safety, the fun and learning of the language.
