Registration is now open for the ‘L'Estiu és teu!’ (Summer is Yours!) summer camp programme, which offers 6,691 places divided into 126 periods aimed at five- to sixteen-year-olds. This year a new direct booking system is being introduced. The process, which opens at 12 noon on Tuesday 10 April on a virtual portal, lets anyone sign up directly for vacant places without having to wait for the results of a draw.
This ensures that everyone will know whether they have a place at their preferred camp straight away, helping families to plan ahead and get organised.
‘L’Estiu és teu!’ offers educational-recreational stays for five- to sixteen-year-olds at the 21 hostels in the Xarxa Nacional d’Albergs Socials de Catalunya (National Youth Hostel Network of Catalonia, Xanascat)
The fourteen different options available are:
- music (eight styles and 26 instruments to choose from);
- languages (English, French or German);
- sport (football, basketball or handball); multisport (31 different sporting activities);
- combination of English and multisport; combination of English and astronomy, inventiveness, circus, theatre, voice, cinema, nature, hiking and dance.
- Children at risk of social exclusion can benefit from a grant ranging from 65% to 100%, which is case-dependent, as in previous years.
- Large families, single-parent families and foster families will continue to enjoy a discount of 10% on the price of stays.
- Holders of a Youth Card can also benefit from a 5% discount on the total price of the stay.
