After visiting "La Granja, Ability Training Center" , on school trips and camps, many teachers have expressed their opinion about the time spent with us, find below their comments!!
- Teacher: Carl Walter. St Peter's School Barcelona
We have been impressed by the organization and efficiency of all the staff, “the monitors”, the kitchen staff and the office staff, they seem to have everything under control and are extremely accessible and helpful.

I take the chance to thank you for everything and to mention that in our school we can't stop talking about all you explained to us about the brain, why we get upset, or what happens with adrenaline and cortisol. To sum up: CAMPS WITH QUALITY.
After 30 years of doing this job, of experiencing changes and cut backs, after taking children all over Catalunya, on both day and sleepover camps, we've seen all sorts of things. And it is very encouraging to find a human team as solid as in La Granja. Since the first time I was here, about 20 years ago, every spring, I've been able to see that everything in La Granja is about evolution and improvement. A good dose of courage, initiative and innovation for the benefit of the boys and girls from our schools always supporting and valuing the work of their educators.
With a method based on leisure time, contact with nature, creativity, imagination and lately, the work related to emotions and the practice of the English language... all this make La Granja a pioneer in many aspects. The success and quality of their activity programs is only possible with the strength and enthusiasm of the human team behind them, and the great management and organization of this special place in our country.
Thank you very much and keep it up!!

You are professionals with a big heart. We felt at home, hosted, listened to, accompanied... I need to tell you that I honor you!! (Lluís) The best camps I’ve ever done in 25 years, CONGRATULATIONS, even though I had to work hard I enjoyed a lot! (Olga) What is the point of being bright if you can't shine your light on others? (With lots of affection). Happiness, emotion, affection, strength, security, trust, empathy, cohabitation... I leave with all these and more carry on like this (Gemma). This is a work well done. Intensive, thrilling, deep... you are awesome. Thanks for this amazing experience. With projects like yours we will achieve great things! (Vero)

From the moment you arrive at La Granja, the relationship of our students and professors with their monitors and staff is very close. The work and development of activities in relation to Emotions is present at all times during your stay. Thus, we end up turning into a big family during our 3 day stay, and achieving our common goal of making the children aware of their own potential, as well as their capacity for personal growth. YES, WE CAN!
- Teacher: Isabel Rialp School: Josep Tous. Barcelona
We are very happy with the quality of the activities, the relation with the children, the concern about the preparation of the food, the cleanliness of the facilities, as well as the monitors and other staff... EVERYTHING IS EXCELLENT! We have also enjoyed the training sessions for the school teachers on Emotional Ed, as well as the very homely relationship with the entire school staff. We have felt very much at home. Thank you for everything! We will return.
- Teacher: Elder Moya (teacher and journalist) School: Josep Veciana (Perafort, Tarragona).
During the past five years I have visited La Granja Escuela three times with children between 3 and 11 years of age. A new and fantastic experience every time! The way they work with children on their emotions and also the workshops with the teachers. Congratulations to you all for giving us the opportunity to come to camp with children who have few financial resources. Yes I can, yes you can, and yes we can!! You are fantastic!
- Teacher: José Luis de la fuente School: Urgell (Barcelona)
Both the kids and the teachers have had a great time during these three days. We have enjoyed the open outdoor facilities for playing and learning about a great variety of animals and activities. Our relationship with the monitors and the entire staff at La Granja has been excellent, and we recommend it to all those who wish to enjoy nature. The monitors are very respectful with the students, their explanations during the activities are also very adequate and they have proved to be very good at capturing the children's attention. We value highly the efficiency with which you have dealt with the changes we asked for.

We have spent four unforgettable days. The students have greatly enjoyed all the activities; they have felt very comfortable with the monitors, as well as learning some English and strengthening the ties between them.
