Each two-week session includes at least two full day and two half-day excursions to nearby sites of interest in the vicinity of the camp. These trips introduce students to the great diversity of spanish culture, food and geography, and aim to take full advantage of the special attractions around the camp.
Spain is divided into 17 autonomous communities, each offering something different and exciting. From the central plains to Andalusia's intricate Arab architecture, from impressive Christian religious buildings to the ruins of the Roman Empire, Spain's rich history is evident everywhere you look. We encourage our campers to open their eyes to the wealth of sights that surround them!
