Camp Program

Project Time

During our Spanish journey children will create their own blog about Spanish cities. The goal is to tell about the cultural heritage of the country in a way that other teenagers will also come, study and fall in love with this region.

Every day for two hours campers:

  • film

  • learn video editing

  • create scenarios and the structure of episodes of their blog

  • interview Spanish teenagers

  • do historical researches

  • learn planning and budgeting

English in the air

Nowadays English is a must. That is why we use only English during the sessions in our camp. Using English to solve specific tasks here and now helps campers literally fall in love with learning it, and quickly overcome the language barrier.

Excursions and immersion in Catalan culture

Of course, a journey to Spain is not only about projects and beaches. Our must-see list includes the most beautiful locations in Barcelona. Barcelona Catedral, Sagrada Familia, Casa Amatller, Palace of Catalan Music, Picasso Museum, la Pedrera, Camp Nou, Montjuïc Mountain - will see everything, take a walk and get inspired.

Why Barcelona?

1

Because Barcelona inspires!

We want to share the Stendale syndrome with our campers - it is when the beauty overwhelms so much that the head starts spinning.

2

Rhythm, culture, architecture, startups,

gastronomy, diversity and lifestyle of the city are fascinating. Over the past 20 years, Barcelona has become the number one destination among the top 10 European holiday destinations

Barcelona isn’t the new location for the Big Fish Academy

We have already held summer programs here in 2018-2019. Furthermore, Iryna and Arcadie Cotruta, the founders of the camp, had been studying and living here for three years, so they can guide tours with their eyes closed.

That’s why we are here again! 

Barcelona inspires!

For 6 whole days, campers will walk the streets where Gaudí, Picasso and other geniuses of the avant-garde were sculpting, visit famous monuments of culture and art. And then our campers will spend 4 days on the coast of the Costa Dorada.

The campers will film all this and finally they will create their own blog about journey, culture, architecture and the cuisine of beautiful Catalonia.

The icing on the cake is lectures and workshops. Children will pass an innovative leadership and communication training program for teenagers from their favorite counselors.

Food in the Camp

Campers will enjoy Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine which includes fresh, baked and fried dishes in the spacious restaurant in the hotel.

*All dishes include fish, meat, pasta and vegetarian options.
