The Summer School is a leisure activity, but no longer in education. Thus, importance is given full play and learning as an educational tool. The game is part of the culture of children and is essential for physical growth, intellectual and social development of the child.
The activities are interrelated with a common thread to discuss different topics, activities are planned to carry them both in large group (gymkhana) and in small groups (workshops).
Activities are held such as trips to the beach (Horse Borrás den) and Can Marroig (planned around a series of rotating workshops to make necklaces, bracelets, face painting, salt dough, murals, tattoos). Another optional activity and complementary courses are swimming with several weekly sessions.
