BASKETBALL CAMPUS IN SUMMER 2019
BASKETBALL CAMP, SURROUNDED BY NATURE
2 HOURS DAILY, FROM MONDAY TO FRIDAY | QUALIFIED COACHES FROM THE CLUB MOVISTAR ESTUDIANTES
The goal of our Club Movistar Estudiantes summer basketball camps is to offer a place and time for kids to improve at the sport’s fundamentals and tactics, as they learn to solve problems and develop as individuals through sports. All this in a recreational environment, with a range of fun activities that are sure to surprise participants.
THE FUNDAMENTAL OF INDIVIDUAL OFFENCE: PASSING, DRIBBLING AND SHOOTING
TACTICS (HOW TO APPLY TECHNIQUES)
FOR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
WE NEED IT
The importance of movement, exercise and sports leads us to dedicate time daily to different team sports and games.
Every day we will have a good time in the pool, with free play and fun-filled synchronised swimming tournaments!
All the kids will enjoy three horseback riding sessions: an introduction, a practice session in the ring, and a ride.
Alternative sports that promote respect for one’s opponent, teamwork, and maximum participation by all. Some examples are ball-less football, kayak basketball, kickball, ultimate frisbee, archery and kayaking on the Jarama River.
Games are an important part of the camp, as they foster group unity, and are also a lot of fun.
WE LOVE CHALLENGES
INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP
During the camp the kids will enjoy a variety of multi-adventure activities, ideal opportunities to test out and improve their skills, physical abilities, and desire to excel, while strengthening both personal independence and teamwork. They are perfect for shots of adrenaline and raising self-esteem.
TIBETAN BRIDGE, ARCHERY, INDOOR CLIMBING WALL, ZIP LINE, AND CANOEING ON THE JARAMA RIVER!
PRESILLAS DE RASCAFRÍA (NATURAL POOLS)
Halfway through the fortnight there will be an outing to the natural pools of Rascafria, in the Valle de Paular (valley), Madrid. We will enjoy incredible views of the Pico Peñalara (peak), and swimming in three natural pools surrounded by green meadows.
MAGICAL MOMENTS AT OUR EVENING EVENTS
Evening functions full of action and activity. Night-time games are a very important part of the programme. Children not only give free rein to their imaginations, and overcome their fear of the dark, but this is also a time that nurtures group unity, as campers help each other, with older kids assisting younger ones. They work as a team, support each other and, above all, have fun. This is an essential time at our summer camps for the kids, before relaxing and hitting the sack.
Some of the evening events are even organised by the campers themselves!
Each counsellor’s group creates an attraction or game, and develops it so that the rest of the kids can enjoy it. In turn, they enjoy the attractions and games that their fellow campers created during the day. They can even earn “coins” to exchange for treats and juice!
HAUNTED HOUSE (HOUSE/MUSEUM FOR THE YOUNGEST CAMPERS)
The older campers prepare a spooky Haunted House! They spend all day working on it, creating a story, its characters, props, decorations, and everything involved in creating a haunted passage to welcome the other campers on the night of the Fair. A fantastically frightening time!
A group of “almost big kids” prepares a night of games, betting and fun, at the Casino. They put it all together! Roulette, blackjack, card games, and many other casino games for children to enjoy.
The most eagerly awaited night ? The evening when many budding artists make their debuts. For days, each working group combines its strengths and exercises all its creativity to produce the very best performance it can. Some sing, others dance, some act out small plays, others juggle… all these talents shine on this night of Stars! Here you can see some of the most creative examples from this night.
What better way to relax after a day out on an excursion than to put on your pyjamas and watch a movie?
A FAREWELL FIESTA, WITH A SPECIAL DINNER AND DANCE!!
The end of the camp arrives, and we want to go out on a high note! On the last night of camp we throw a party with hamburgers and French fries after our waiters, the counsellors, put on their traditional farewell show for us. Don’t miss any of them; click here!

OUR BASKET CAMP, 100% IN SPANISH
Our traditional Spanish Camp is run by our traditional Spanish team (except basketball hours). All activities are carried out in Spanish and many of our students have known our group leaders for years. They have become role models that inspire the students for a life-time. Students are encouraged, accompanied, and empowered by them. It is the ideal camp to learn Spanish with Spanish leaders and Spanish friends.
FULL LANGUAGE IMMERSION. 24 HOURS IN ENGLISH
In our English summer camps, we focus on the following 3 concepts: 24 hours of fun, English without classes!, and ratio 1:8, 1 leader every 8 campers!
The best option to practice and improve your English without any effort
