Adventure camp for teenagers (14 – 17 years)
The Adventure camp is an action packed and ground breaking set of experiences created specifically for teenagers. Not only will this be a fun packed and adventurous option, it also paves the way for our Eco-Citizen award. This 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 they live in and to build up a set of vital life skills. Central to the successful achievement of these programs will be teamwork, cooperation and solidarity; the nurturing of these skills is at the forefront of our approach.
Moving with confidence in nature; being able to light a fire without a lighter, designing and making driftwood rafts and creating art work with recycled material, exploring waterfalls and making survival shelters are some of the activities that we will offer.
Many of the activities of the Adventure camp will take place on Tarifa’s beautiful beaches and we will spend a lot of quality time on their unspoilt white sandy shores, with crystal clear waters
The highlight will however be creating our own Lenguaventura Nature Reserve. On our beautiful organic estate in the hills we have set aside an area dedicated to the Lenguaventura nature camp. Here the teens will be involved in creating a nature reserve for both the special wildlife of the area as well as future generations of explorers. In the wildlife area we will be making a mini wetland, bird nesting boxes, bat roost houses and places for the animals to hibernate. In addition we will plant up the meadow with wild flowers to attract some of Europe’s rarest and most magnificent butterflies. By doing this the campers will really be making a difference as well as creating a beautiful space. Lenguaventura will keep the teens up to date after the summer camp with everything through regular facebook postings and newsletters as the reserve develops.
The multi activity program from our teen summer camp in Tarifa will no longer be offered and is replaced with this Adventure camp. The full program takes two weeks. For students who wish to stay longer in the summer camp they have the choice to mentor the new students as a “senior” or to change to either the Kitesurf or Windsurf Camp.
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.
