SUMMER CAMPS IN SPAIN SINCE 1985
Castillo de Layos is a full time family-run business. Born in 1985 and based on the structure of traditional American Camps, we thought of an ideal model that creates great experiences for children in different parts of the world. For the younger ones, life at the Camp is a golden opportunity for personal development. Children learn to be self-sufficient even in the most basic things such as getting dressed, eating or just being clean and tidy. This is achieved alongside others who are in the same situation, allowing everyone to gain autonomy and discipline in a natural way. For the older ones, it is an opportunity to make new friends and take on new challenges and adventures. The arrival of campers from all over the world enriches our programmes and prepares each individual for the globalised environment we live in.
Learning a new sport, taking on the adventure of doing something new, the joy of a simple lifestyle and learning the value of generosity are all traits that our children take back home with them. This allows them to grow as people and to become conscious of their unique potential.
Today more than ever, we believe in the effectiveness of our work. Layos Camp is a project worth living and working for.
The leading role of sport in most of our programmes allows our philosophy to be geared towards sportsmanship and its values: solidarity, respect, challenges to overcome and teamwork. We strive to promote a love of nature and sports, without forgetting the creative side of life, encouraging students to become involved in theatre, music, art and cultural excursions.
AGES 6 to 23
Our camps are divided into three diferent age groups so that campers participate in sports, games and activities with peers of their same age.
In all our centres, we prepare the food with products of the highest quality. We design menus especially thought out for children, a healthy and balanced diet that will keep their batteries charged throughout the day. We also offer a variety of options for children with food intolerances, allergies, or special diets.
All of the camps are less than 5 minutes to a medical center, and 10 minutes to a hospital. A licensed lifeguard and a graduate in medicine are in charge of the infirmary and the daily care of the children.
In case of an accident, all of the children are covered by insurance. Children will be required to bring a photocopy of their Social Security Card or private insurance policy.
Foreigners will need to have a travellers insurance that will be provided by Layos Camp, it can be purchased at €50 for Europeans and €100 for non-Europeans.
We include incoming and outgoing transportation from Madrid to the camp for all our programmes. We meet the parents at a specific location and the children always travel with counsellors.
Layos Camp offers a pick-up and drop-off service at the airport or station for children who are travelling from abroad, with the price to be specified with the office depending on the schedule. We always need the full information on both arrival and departure times.
