Why a Summer Camp in Barcelona?
Known around the world for its cosmopolitan atmosphere, pretty Mediterranean beaches and stunning architecture, Barcelona relishes its role as a top European destination.
The city is home to some of Spain’s most renowned museums – such as the Picasso Museum and the MACBA – not to mention a jam-packed cultural agenda of exhibitions, concerts, festivals and more. It’s a beautiful, lively and exciting city that has proven itself time and again to be an intriguing atmosphere for discovering Spain’s language and culture.
Our Barcelona Spanish Summer Camp is located just outside of the city center in a privileged area of Barcelona where you’ll find lovely chalets and the lush and verdant Laberint Park. It boasts easy access to the city, thanks to its proximity to the metro (FGC) stop Mundet.
FOOD & NUTRITION
Our supervisors and cooks are fully trained for assuring that every student enjoys a comprehensive and balanced diet during their stay in any one of our camps.
The balanced diet is the way of eating that provides a variety of food in quantities appropriate to our personal necessities and conditions.
Follow a balanced diet does not mean eating a lot of food, since its quantity is as important as its quality. Nutritional education and the acquisition of dietary habits form part of the nutritional culture that a person follows during an entire life, that is the reason why in our camps we try to enhance healthy nutritional habits encouraging the consumption of vegetables, fruit and diary products.
Avoiding the consumption of sweets or pastries and setting a regular schedule for the four meals of the day: breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner.
It is important that young people learn to eat exclusively with water, leaving the sodas for special occasions and above all learn to do sports and combine the good habits, that we try to fulfill during our camps, with daily activity, the essential trait of our camps.
We offer special diet for vegetarians, people with allergies or coeliacs.

The organization of summer activities for our camp children and teenagers can be divided into three categories: recreational, workshops, excursions, as well as summer camp sports and summer language courses.
Summer Spanish and English courses in Barcelona will take place:
- During the mornings, from Monday to Friday.
- With 4 daily lessons, each lasting 45 minutes.
- With a maximum of 14 students per class.
Once the program ends and the course is completed, students will receive a certificate along with a progress report.
Summer Language Courses:
We always keep in mind the time of year and the ages of our students… we’re a summer camp and the goal is to have fun! The summer language course content and materials as well as the teaching methodology are conceived and designed aiming for the perfect balance between fun and rigor so that our campers make the most out of their English or Spanish course.
The success of our campers not only upon the motivation of the students, but also in great part upon the teaching staff who share their knowledge. For this very reason we carefully select our team of language teachers. All of them are bilingual, are licensed in the teaching of English or Spanish, have the CAP (Certificate of Pedagogical Aptitude) and 90% are native speakers.
When it comes to designing the courses, we never forget that we’re a summer program. For this reason, the language courses are conceived and designed to motivate students in a fun summer setting, but also sufficiently serious and professional as to ensure that they make the most of their stay. The teaching system that we use is centered on a communicative approach and includes diverse didactic methos: grammar, speaking, listening, vocabulary pronunciation, oral and written competence.
The didactic material is designed for each age group and subdivided into varying levels of linguistic competence. The kit, which will be issued to students on the first day of class, is complemented by other tools to further facilitate understanding.
The level of each student will be determined by a Spanish or English test on the first day. Students will be divided into groups depending both on their age and on the test results. The student will be placed in the appropriate level among the 7 levels, ranging from beginner to advanced, that we offer..
When the course ends, the professor will give the student a report card noting his / her improvements.
The day-to-day organization in Barcelona is designed so that students can take part in as many sports as possible, as well as participate in a diverse selection of workshops and recreational Spanish summer camps activities, always geared towards each age group
One of the best times to improve and develop athletic skills is during the summer. For that very reason we offer 2 different sports program types:
- The sports regularly planned sports during the afternoon for the entire camp, in which all students can participate.
- The «optional sports,» which must be booked and paid for in advance and which take place in addition to the sports program followed by the rest of the camp.
Some of the regularly planned sports are…
Examples of some of the workshops we offer in our Spanish summer camps …
With this workshop, students will explore and learn about various aspects related to the natural environment, trekking and hiking on ecological trails, knot-making, camping, etc. At the same time, one of the principal goals is to instill in our students a lifelong philosophy of respect and appreciation twoards the environment that surrounds us.
The journalism workshop provides an opportunity for students to have fun and take part in the creation of a publication that encompasses camp news, opinions, etc. Students will work on their critical thinking and writing skills, express their creativity and form part of a productive team in the publication of a biweekly newspaper.
