With the learning of the pioneering and exciting sport of kitesurfing. This sport is directly related to personal development. It is a sport that requires concentration, balance, subtlety, perseverance and inner strength to overcome limits and fears, it requires you to give "the best version of yourself." In addition, other trendy sports are practiced among teenagers, who require similar skills, such as surfing, paddelsup and longboard.
Personal Development program “The best versión of yourself” or Language program
The personal development program is designed for Spanish campers and foreigners who are fluent in Spanish. Foreign campers who do not speak Spanish can participate in the language program (spanish or english classes).
Personal development programIn our camp, we work so that the young people understand the process of personal change that they are experiencing, strengthen their personal strengths and abilities, learn to motivate themselves through their emotional states, face new challenges without wearing down, recognize their own personal resources and know How to use them, focus on stressful situations and ultimately know each other better to be able to be in the world more fully and confidently.
Language programWe offer classes of open and dynamic structure, which attend to the particular needs of the student. Usually, they are focused on pronunciation and conversation, to work on the ability to listen, to deal with everyday situations, to learn techniques that help to lose the shame and to start speaking in another language. A class example could be to visit the local market, the castle, shopping, and also a more theoretical class in the classroom.
