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.
From Eastern Europe to Barcelona, DEC Camp have been organising educational innovation camps for almost 10 years and have hosted over 5000 campers in that time. This year, they are 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!
This year, kids of all nationalities will interact with one another, with activities ranging from wakeboarding, paddle-surfing, playing football and kayaking to 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 their diverse programme is sure to leave all campers feeling fulfilled and inspired.
All lessons and activities are structured around the 4C framework - critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity - which are all skills required to succeed in the 21st century. There is a strong sense 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. DEC camp certainly has, and they help their campers to do the same—to experience it, to live it, to be inspired. They love what they do and your kids will love it too.
