Cijara Summer Camp Forest

  • The best Summer Camp in Spain with multiple sport activities, cultural trips and a lot of fun!!

    This is an exciting and challenging programme that introduces campers who are enthusiastic about outdoor life to a thrilling range of sports. With our base on the beautiful forest in Extremadura, adventure campers will quickly lose themselves in the beautiful scenery near a lake. The adventure activities take campers into the forest and trails that surround the camp as well as permit the use of the excellent on-site activity facilities available in our campus. Campers will get an exciting taste of water activities in crystal clear waters. Who knows, they might even get to experience a bit of kayaking as well!! Why not? In the lake, there might still be time for beach volleyball, swimming and just chilling out. Away from the lake, campers enjoy through shady ferns and great variety of trees into the camp. Other activities include archery, water slide and a lot of sports to round out a true Extremadura Adventure.

  • Activities


    You will enjoy learning new things and practising what you already know, and importantly, you will lose any fear of expressing yourself in your new language.
    During the camp you will receive 15 language lessons (Spanish, English or French) per week (10-12 students per class on average) which, together with our teaching methodology of encouraging active participation and total language immersion, guarantees a maximum learning opportunity.


    We will play the usual sports, such as football, basketball, volleyball, rugby, swimming but also others that are not so common, archery, canoeing, waterpolo and other watersports and hiking in a truly natural environment, providing opportunities for children to try new activities.

    Games and parties

    Due to this variety of things that we are close to we can enjoy our time playing different games. Fun night activities, theatre, music, different workshops of journalism, environmental education, cooking, recycling, dancing and more and more…


    Not everything is about learning and practising sports but also about enjoying the time in the camp. We are making different excursions to fantastic sides of Extremadura, starting from the amazing flora and fauna that surrounds the camp. We also go to visit such wonderful cities as Cáceres, Mérida, Plasencia and other amazing Cultural Monuments like the Cuacos de Yuste Monastery.

    • Our facilities

Mérida and Cáceres have both been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO and are rivalled by beautiful monasteries such as Guadalupe and Yuste, impressive castles such as Alburquerque or Trujillo, and palaces like the Parador in Zafra or Jarandilla de la Vera.Our excursion programme takes campers through the dramatic scenery of colourful Extreamdura to visit its historical towns and cities of culture including the picturesque, old town of Cáceres and impressive Monastry of Yuste.
