Nothing stays the same, and every year summer camp changes and gets better and better. So what has changed for summer 2018?
Camper Phone Calls
As those of you who have worked on camp before may know, we used to have phone calls to parents almost every day in most camps. In summer 2018, campers will not phone home everyday. Over the course of the fortnight, they will phone home 5 times, and during these times they will have a full 30 minutes to talk to their parents. The one exception is the Seniors in Family Camp Puerto… they will have more phone call time, due to being teenagers and needing their phones that little bit more.
It is time to say goodbye to the Intercamp competition… Although always a day filled with great competitive energy and excitement, all good things must come to an end. In 2018, we will not be running Intercamp during July. We will however be running…
Clash of the Colours in Family Camp
To replace Intercamp, Family Camp will have Clash of the Colours as their Sunday excursion. This is an intense Colour War competition, which is already run in Family Camp Gredos. The campers compete all day long in lots of different activities to win points for the blue or white team, and at the end of the day, one of the teams is crowned the winner and wins extra points for their Colour War team. Have a look at what it looks like here.
New building in Family Camp Puerto
The new building in our Family Camp Puerto site is currently being built, having started last August. Whilst we may not have the whole building ready to use in summer 2018, we are hoping that we will be able to use some of the new fancy installations! It looks very swanky.
Even more school camps!
Our school camps department is growing each year, and this year we have school camps running from the end of February until the end of June. We are running them in Gredos and Huerta Dorotea, where we run our school camps, and also in a different site here in Puerto called Coto de la Isleta. We also will have four school camp monitors coming out to work with us from February. However, we sometimes need extra people to come and work on our school camps – if you are interested, you can signup to hear about opportunities here.
