“SPORT CREATES A BOND BETWEEN PEOPLE THAT LASTS A LIFETIME”
Our programs are created in line with the age of our students and the number of participants that each of our 18 sporting activities allows. The safety and security of our campers is paramount, and for this reason all of our activities take place within the grounds of Gaia Camp.
Campers enrolled in this program take part in an extra two hours of sports during the afternoon, divided into four 30-minute periods. These students therefore practice 12 different sports during the day: 8 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon.
“A PLACE WHERE WE BEGIN TO MAKE OUR PLANET A BETTER WORLD”
In this program, students have two hours of workshops and other activities which take place in our Gaia Organics building. We educate our campers in essential matters such as respect for the environment, ecological agriculture, recycling, water, clean energies and more. Campers learn through fun activities that show them how to be environmentally responsible.
Students who choose this option take part in 4 hours of sports during the morning and 2 hours of Gaia Organics in the afternoon.

“WE LEARN BY LISTENING, BUT WE ALSO LEARN BY CREATING”
Two hours of workshops, modelling and other activities in our classrooms with the methodology of LEGO education. Relying on the imagination and creativity of the children, our LEGO workshops encourage such important talents and skills as innovation, communication, teamwork and enterprise.
Students who choose this option take part in 4 hours of sports during the morning and 2 hours of Gaia LEGO in the afternoon.

“GIVE ME THE FORMATIVE YEARS OF THE CHILD AND I WILL SHOW YOU THE ADULT OF TOMORROW”
Students of 12 to 13 years old participate in the Gaia Teens program. These students enjoy:
4 hours of sporting activities per day in 30-minute periods, which means they play 8 different sports every day.
Gaia Teens course: a two-hour program in which we work together through group discussions, exercises and workshops to develop social and communication skills, a sense of values, the capacity for teamwork, leadership, and more.
“BECAUSE FOR US EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT”
“Good habits formed at youth make all the difference.”(Aristotle).
Training course for young people between 16 and 18 years old
The Gaia CIT program opens up the opportunity for you to enhance and complete your education. We will work on matters of responsibility, leadership, communication skills, respect for oneself and others, and humility so that you can become the future trainers and volunteers.
