The Marbella camp is located on a beautiful finca, the campus covering 38,000m2 and is amply shaded by surrounding thick woods of pine trees, which creates a tranquil, pleasant atmosphere. Just 8 km (13 miles) from the centre of Marbella and a short ride from the Hotel Don Carlos and the city's general hospital, our prestigious center is also just a 15-minute walk from the beach!
The camp's central building consists of the dorm rooms, a dining hall, and a residential area for counsellors and coaches. Sports facilities include: a large swimming pool, showers, a covered, multipurpose sports area, a paddleball court, two soccer fields (one grass and one paved), a basketball/ mini-soccer court, a handball court and two stables. There is also a newsstand and a games hall.
The camp holds 220 residential students although more day students participate in the camp as well. This camp is unique in that along with other international students from a variety of countries, the camp hosts Spanish students (60%). While your child is taking Spanish lessons, the Spanish students are taking English lessons. For the rest of the day campers mix and mingle during activities while mutually learning from each other.
The success of all learning efforts depends on a teaching team trained and equipped to motivate their students. To this end, the camp only uses a highly qualified and energetic faculty. The Spanish teachers are all natives with at least 5-year university degrees in Spanish Linguistics and Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. Most of them have a Masters and/or Doctorate in Spanish and all hold the CAP (Certificate of Teaching Ability). The summer camp faculty is experienced in teaching young people of various ages and implements a wide array of techniques and activities that speak to every age group and learning type.
