PARENTS SAY

Fun and dynamic activities designed to train skills such as empathy, positive communication or the ability to work as a team, amongst others. All these skills allow to promote self-awareness and improve aspects such as self-esteem, tolerance against frustration and overcoming our fears.

The emotional camps at La Granja are some of the most powerful activities we offer, and include fun and dynamic workshops designed to train the social and personal abilities of children between 6 and 14 years of age. This includes emotional competences such as empathy, positive communication or the ability to work as a team, for example. The result after only one week is a significant increase in self-awareness, trust in one's own capabilities and emotional self-regulation, as well as training in overcoming fears and a better tolerance in the face of frustration (these results have been scientifically tested).

Traditionally, every summer there is a common theme which is translated into a story that all parents and children will read during camp (parents at  home and the children here with us). This story will somehow come true here at La Granja since the theme always has something to do with the reality of what is happening during the days they spend at camp. Thus, when parents pick their children up every day they will also experience camp activities and learn the tools they can continue to use at home after the summer.  

This summer 2018 will be focused on THE PLANET AND I, and the main theme will be self-awareness, becoming conscious of our unconscious  thoughts and learning about our ego. All this in a very practical way, learning through direct experience while having fun. 

Registration is open, you just have to contact us and make your reservation. 

If you want to meet us, there are three Open House days available if you wish to visit: March 27th, May 5th and 21st at 11am,  register here. If this is not possible, you can also visit us any day of the week, after making an appointment (Monday to Friday from 10am to 5,30pm) by calling our phone  93-848 11 25 (Anna)

Instructors: they are EMOTIONAL TRAINERS, prepared and trained following the Granja Method*. During the entire camp they work to promote motivation, cohesion and control of their group, underlining aspects such as emotional awareness and self-regulation, self-esteem and empathy.

During the night, the night tutor will watch that all goes well and that everyone is well rested. There are also specialists such as riding professors and a lifeguard.

*Scientifically tested Method that significantly helps to improve the  5 emotional competences (GROP Study by the University of Barcelona)
