How do we prepare our kids for the 21st century?
Let’s take a deep breath and face facts. We live in extraordinary times, and providing children with the tools to succeed in today's fast-paced society is becoming harder than ever. Schools do a fine job on the academic side, but what about preparation for life outside the classroom? At DEC Camp teaching secondary skills for your kids is our primary objective, and we provide quality training in a fun yet educational environment.
10 years of successful summer camps
From Eastern Europe to Barcelona, we've been organising educational innovation camps for almost 10 years and have hosted over 5000 campers in that time. This year, we're coming to Vilar Rural de Cardona, which offers breathtaking views of the medieval Castle of Cardona. Facilities include comfortable rooms that sleep four to six children, a swimming pool, a football pitch, modern classrooms and even a subterranean salt-mine!
A packed programme of activities
For us at DEC Camp, summer camp is much more than a day at the beach or a quest in the city. It presents a unique opportunity to change the world in a short amount of time: to instill confidence, to promote a sense of community and to pursue great ideas in a fun and educational environment. This year, kids of all nationalities will interact with one another, with activities ranging from wakeboarding, paddle-surfing and playing football to kayaking, visiting Cadaqués to learn about Surrealism. taking English and Spanish lessons, star-gazing under the night sky, clapping along to the rhythm at a flamenco show, learning how to make paella, taking cool selfies at Montserrat and practising their padel skills. The camp is led entirely in English by trained and qualified staff, and our diverse programme is sure to leave all campers feeling fulfilled and inspired.
Learning life skills through fun
All our lessons and activities are structured around the 4C framework - critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity - skills that are required to succeed in the 21st century. For example, at DEC camp, campers don't just play football, but learn how to cooperate and think outside the box through football. The activity is an instrument in achieving the ultimate goal: to develop skills. It's a subtle yet significant difference. We change the terrain (uphill football), the scope (not goals, but touches) and the format (three teams, four goalposts).
Inspiration, community and motivation
Here at DEC Camp, we create a feeling of community, self-belief and motivation, where “I can’t do this” is transformed into “I want to try this”. As the saying goes, in order to be successful, you have to discover something you love doing. We certainly have, and we can help our campers to do the same—to experience it, to live it, to be inspired. We love what we do and we’re good at it. Your kids, our campers, will love it too.
