Adventure camp for teenagers (14 – 17 years)
Our Adventure camp is an action packed introduction to adventure, nature and the environment. It has been designed specifically for teenagers. Not only will this be a fun packed and adventurous option, it will also pave the way for our Eco-Citizen award. Our approach allows the teenagers to become aware of the wonders of nature and how they can start to become more conscious of the world that we live in and to build up a set of vital life skills.
A great way to kick start the Lenguaventura adventure camp will be an afternoon of hilarious, adventurous and fun games on a beautiful private estate. In the meadows by the river we will play and learn how to work as a team. Afterwards the participants can relax or swim in a natural pool.
A real challenge will be the orienteering activity, how well can our participants read a map, find hidden clues and break the code? Moving through the wild olive forest and crossing the river will be a fun and exciting challenge to discover the hidden treasure.
- Building a raft or a boat to escape the desert island we are stranded on. This is a classical survival adventure with lots of laughter. Will they float, how will the participants steer and which team will win the raft challenge?
- Tracking skills; the teenagers will learn to find and follow tracks, create trails and to discover the amazing wildlife of this area
- Waterfalls and tropical canyons; off road drive to enter into the mountains and being guided to a place where water tumbles over giant boulders into crystal clear pools beneath the forest canopy. A perfect adventure for a hot day. Here the participants can swim or just relax on the rocks looking at the beauty of nature
- Living like the ancestors; learning skills of the past. Using natural pigments to dye T-Shirts, crafting spears from what is found on the land, making pottery and weaving plant fibres into bracelets and rope. The teenagers will discover the techniques our ancestors used to thrive in nature.
Some of the activities of the Adventure camp will take place on Tarifa’s beautiful beaches
Central to the successful achievement of the adventure camp will be teamwork, cooperation and solidarity; the nurturing of these skills is at the forefront of our approach.
Wednesdays and weekends is the time where the whole group, also from the Kitesurf and Windsurf undertakes activities together, such as fieldtrips or leisure/sport activities.
