Technological Camps in the middle of nature, in the incomparable region of the Valle de Aran. Technology, Sport and English united together for the first time in Spain. Camps with full room and board

After the experience of the 2016 edition (rated as excellent by the attending families) for this summer 2017 we have organized a camp which has never been seen before with our team of technology monitors and English. Your children will have fun in nature while they learn the latest technologies and perfect their English in the most enjoyable manner. Drone Creation Workshops, racing the drones among the trees, construction and launch of water pressurized rockets, solid combustion rocket propelled car races, 3D printing, robots, videogame design with Unity and virtual reality….And much more! All of this surrounded by nature, doing adventure sports and enjoying biodiversity

The Camp

In the adventure park of Deportur-Naturaran there is a recently renovated bungalow area with zones for group accommodation in 5 room Bungalows with 2 and 3 beds per room and 2 full bathrooms. Our groups are formed in teams, Genius (9-12) and Expert (13-17). The space also contains communal areas for workshops on the top floor. The dining room was the best rated component of the camp in the 2016 edition! Moreover, for the magical star watching night we have the Teepee Camp at our disposition.

Camp Genius (9-12 years)

Boys and girls from 8 years of age can participate as long as an older brother or sister attends the camp as well.

Workshops

The Workshops that we will conduct in this camp will be focused on 2 principal areas which repeat each week for the 2 age groups, Genius and Expert. Those who attend more than one week will change the activity.


Robotics Area

A rescue mission to Mars will be completed where the technicians will have to configure a robot which is capable of running off of solar energy and follow the routes which allow it to reach the evacuation location. In order to do this, the Genius level participants will work with Lego EV3 kits and the Expert level participants with Ranger kits.


Coding and Design Area

Our Expert Group will work in the 3D Design Area as well as Virtual Reality with Unity. As support for the Mars surface mission they will develop a videogame with the rescue ships which will arrive to Mars. They will create the ships and the dynamic game experience will be viewed through RV glasses.



The Genius Group will make an inventor lab integrating programming in Kodu and experimentation with Micro.bit

As additional technological activities for all the participants in the camp we will have a testing camp for mini-drone flights to learn how to fly and control the drones. This will be done with computer based flight simulators with real transmission. Moreover, we will have a drone racing area for drones with cameras and vision glasses for controlling the drones. The participants will have to complete the course and pass through its obstacles.

We will also holding the Water pressure driven rocket championships as well as the rocket propelled car races. The participants will even be able to measure the acceleration and height reached. Moreover, they will experience how aerodynamics affects the features of the devices that they will have to build.

Facility Characteristics

The camp takes place in the facilities of Deportur – Naturaran in Les, Valle de Aran, with accommodation in bungalows with rooms with 2 or 3 beds and an area with Teepees for the magic night including a sporting activity every day: adventure park with zip lines and Tibetan bridges, rock climbing introduction, Via Ferrata (fixed climbing), canyoning, laser tag or rafting, etc. If the participants for any reason wish not to participate in any of the adventure sports activities, there will be other options available during this time. Each activity will be at the hand of a group of qualified and certified instructors. Moreover, we will use the pool, football, beach volleyball, ping pong and billiard areas within the camp.
Our camp combines key areas in education for the future of your sons and daughters: English, initiative, technology, sport and nature. We are the leaders in multi-disciplinary camps on a national level.





Keith Kirwen

Hello. My name is Keith Kirwen. I am happy to present to you this fantastic, first ever, Youth Summer camp where we have successfully combined Technology, Mountain Adventure Sports and Language into one dynamic and fun filled experience for your children. I have been in the language education industry in Spain since 2002 and have directed numerous youth camps over these years. My role is to personally oversee the language component of the camp to ensure that the young people are constantl learning English during each activity as well as in their English classes.
Each child will attend English classes on a daily basis with my native English speaking, experienced, language teachers. In these more traditional style language classes Technology concepts and vocabulary will be the subject matter to be studied while placing attention on the important grammar components.
We place the children in their English classes taking into consideration their English level with a level test upon arrival to camp and their age and maturity, thus creating the best environment possible for learning.
Each week the children will work on a Technological project in their different workshops and our team will work with them in preparing the presentation of their project, in English, at the closing ceremony with the families of those who wish to attend.
Outside of the traditional classroom style English classes my team and I will assist the monitors of the camp in the use of English throughout the day. As the English director, I will ensure that the monitors hired to supervise the children and teach them Technology have a very high level of English (if they are not native English speakers) and will ensure that the international monitors we bring to the camp understand the importance of teaching English to their students as well as Technology.
I can’t wait to see you all this summer.
Cheers,
Keith
