NATURE CAMP FOR younger KIDS
The Day Camp is like a day camp, but surrounded by nature, and featuring a bilingual format. Half of the activities carried out will be in English, with bilingual and/or native speakers, thus ensuring an experience through which to learn English in a fun and natural way.
DAY CAMP NEAR MADRID
The kids will arrive in the morning and return home in the afternoon. The whole camp takes place at our centre in Talamanca de Jarama, an ideal setting where kids can perform a myriad of activities at facilities in the countryside by the banks of the Jarama River.
A DIFFERENT ONE EACH WEEK
DIVERSIÓN EN LA GRANJA
WEEKS 1, 5 AND 9
ENTERING THE FARM
Connecting with the environment
This week is proposed as a first approach of the children to the activities of a farm, giving priority to the care, cleaning, maintenance and feeding of the animals. During all these years of Day Camp, the children have shown us a special interest in this type of activity, asking with great enthusiasm to visit the rodents, horses, goats, etc., and feed them. In order to achieve a week of total immersion in nature, the children will enjoy the following activities:
Feeding and care of farm animals.
Path along the Jarama River.
* Notice to parents: we will keep you up to date with daily photos.
WEEKS 2 AND 6
A BUG’S LIFE
EVERY BUG HAS HIS DAY
With this topic, we will show children the enormous variety of animals that encompasses the term “bugs”. They will understand some of the most important characteristics of the different groups that surround us.
We will try to take away the bad reputation that all bugs have in general (some due to their condition of parasites and others for their role in the transmision of diseases).
Every day, we will study a bug, getting to know its way of life and its funtion in nature. We will make traps and bug hotels and we will look for them to observe them with entertainment.
Our bug hunters will combine their work with sports and multi-adventure activities. And like every year, they will also enjoy taking care of the farm animals (cows, goats, sheep, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds).
After all this activity, campers deserve a dip, cooling off in our large pool.
LOS NUEVOS GRANJEROS
WEEKS 3 AND 7
WHEN THERE WERE NO SHOPPING CENTRES
We want to teach children about a way of life different from their daily reality today. Our goal is to teach them how our ancestors lived, when there were no shopping centres, television, or new technologies. We travel back to the farms our grandparents knew, to rural areas where there were no buses or subways.
Children will learn how to manage natural resources, the importance of protecting the environment, and how to achieve sustainable development.
- Feeding and taking care of all our animals.
- Horseback riding.
- Food workshops: cookies, cheese, butter, bread …
- Working with wool.
- Traditional games.
- Caring for, irrigating and harvesting products from the garden.
- Agricultural tasks. (We sow, tend the garden, and harvest).
- We become farmers (shepherding, brushing horses, collecting eggs, milking, feeding farm animals, cleaning stables and cages etc.)
- Food transformation

STIMULATION AND LEARNING

Bilingual Camp Spanish-English
The bilingual approach
A natural approach to the English language. Ideal to make initial contact. A bilingual camp for the little ones with Spanish and native English camp leaders. Each day, half of the activities will be carried out in English and the other half in Spanish. Daily routine moments are bilingual, carried out in both languages, given that both Spanish and non-Spanish camp leaders are in charge during these moments.
