|A DAY AT SUMMER CAMP|
Throughout their stay the children experience a genuine cultural atmosphere that enables them to learn about all aspects of Italian life.
After a hearty
breakfast the morning is spent on excursions
into the Park led by guides and instructors (9 am)
afternoon is happily spent competing in an archery contest or in a game
of “palla prigioniera”*, stopping only to enjoy a delicious
teatime snack! (4 p.m.)
|*A game where players hit by the ball become prisoners of the opposite team.|
|THE PROGRAMME OF
ACTIVITIES IS PARTICULARLY CAREFULLY PLANNED AND INTERESTING:
it ranges from spring-tracking, retracing a stream armed with rucksack, torch and boots to discover its spring, to building tree houses using trunks and branches found in the woods, “archeogames”, namely the study and discovery of how early man lived using workshops and themed games.
The children can also gather clay along the banks of the stream.
|In addition, we
go on mini-hunts to capture small animals that help children
learn more about the fauna in the park, follow the tracks left by the animals
in the woods, and also play hunt the leaf, a game that
allows children to learn to recognise the trees and plants growing in the
Then there are the sports activities, which range from archery to outdoor sports involving games like tug-of-war, relay race, endurance competitions.
Considerable time is set aside for creative and expressive activities (photography, crosswords, puzzles, drawing, theatre).
