Workshop schedules will change daily. Every student may select those workshops that they enjoy the most. Each school will offer different workshops according to facilities and age groups. Some of the workshops may include:
Open Air Workshop
With this workshop, the students will come to know diverse aspects related to the natural world such as knot-making, nature tracking and ecological trails. At the same time one of the principal goals of the workshop is to teach students to respect the natural elements of their own environment.
Participants can experiment with various materials and create works from such materials as clay, paper, threads and string and various other materials purchased for the workshops…recycled materials are used as well.
The student’s first-steps into the culinary world are often helping to prepare a dish from their own country or tasting one from another student’s culture. Some of the recipes tried in the past include Mississippi Mud Pie (USA), Russian tea cakes and…to be sure…typical recipes from Spain’s numerous provinces including paella and Spanish tortilla or potato omelet.
The objective of this workshop is that our students learn to create juggling balls, balancing plates and other objects.
Ballroom Dancing Workshop
The twin goals of this workshop are to develop the student’s sense of rhythm and body movement synchronized with different types of music. Traditional ballroom dance steps are alternated with Spanish music…both traditional and popular…as well as music from other countries.
Flamenco and Sevillanas Workshop
For those who don’t know how to dance typical Spanish dances, we believe that this is a great opportunity to begin.
This workshop encourages students to create a newspaper that includes camp news and opinions, produced biweekly.
Campers will be able to perform their own or famous works recommended by our theatre counselor. Students will also be able to participate in the selection of the work, make-up and costumes and set design.
Fundamental lifesaving techniques are taught.
Music and Percussion Workshop
With this workshop, we will discover if students have a good musical ear and if they know to hold a beat with bongos, the Flamenco cajon or tambourine, the guitar, maracas and other instruments.
A minimum of one all day and two half-day excursions are taken during each two week camp period.
Students at the Valencia Summer Camp will take trips to beaches in and just outside of the city, as well as full day excursions to nearby towns in the region. There is a lot to see in the old part of the Valencia and, on the other hand, Santiago Calatrava’s futuristic City of Arts & Sciences is always a camp trip favorite.
Full-day trips: Alicante, Sagunto
Half-day trips: City Tour, the City of Arts & Sciences.

One of the best times to continue developing the student´s sports skills and abilities is summer! Please note:
- Due to scheduling reasons, students who enroll in optional sports may not always be able to take part in other sports offered at the camp all of the time.
- As places for these optional sports are limited, we encourage the parents to register their child as soon as possible if interested.
- It is necessary that these spaces be reserved and paid at least two weeks in advance of the student´s arrival so as to accommodate those with reservations.
- Only one optional sport is available per two-week camp period.
- Once the student’s program has started it is not possible to enroll in or to cancel the optional sports options.
12 hours per two-week camp period are scheduled. For students who want to learn and practice their skills at the water sport of sailing, they can participate in the optional sailing program in Valencia. They will be taught and supervised by professional instructors.
16 hours per two-week camp period are scheduled. The course is designed for all player levels. Students receive their lessons on-site or at a nearby University campus.
One day at Enfocamp:
Here is a timetable that tells you hour by hour how our classes are organized at Enfocamp, when we do activities and the meal times at our facilities, so that you can see how each day will play out. This is sure to give you the peace of mind that you need, knowing just what your child will be up to at every moment, and being able to check up on what they would be doing at certain times of day if you start to wonder while they are at the camp
Both our teachers and camp monitors put maximum effort into ensuring that there is never a dull moment for all of the children, whether they are young enough to be just starting school or old enough to be close to finishing it. From the moment they get up in the morning to when they go to sleep, there is so much to do and learn, and there is something new every day! Not only will they get a full schedule of lessons in the language that they have chosen to learn (Spanish for those who speak English natively, and English for the learners who have come from the local area), but they will also have an action packed schedule which is full of activities and will allow them to have a lot of fun all day long. They will have three solid meals a day as well as plenty of breaks, with enough time to fit in sports and other kinds of fun as well – and of course the time to get showered and cleaned up every day too. With set bed times and rising times, they will keep to a good schedule that allows them to get everything they need – learning, nutrition, fun, activity, more learning, hygiene, and rest.
