TERMS AND CONDITIONS

PYRENE ADVENTURE PROJECTS SL presents the Pyrene Summer Camp! A proposal that was born in 2010 and which fuses the philosophy of work camps, non-formal education, and summer camps.

We propose the co-responsibility of the participants in the success of the program, combining effort, learning, and fun. Our goal is to propose situations that facilitate learning through experience. Simulating a university campus, in the same space and under common activities (meals, night games, excursions…) the participants choose 1 field from 8 possible.
