Why Spain?

This programme takes place in a spa town in Galicia in northwestern Spain. The English camp takes place in a beautiful rural setting, where you will gain valuable teaching experience while doing fun outdoor and indoor activities. 


The camp’s mission is to transmit language learning in a fun way, inspiring young people to go further with learning a language, while also boosting their confidence and teamwork. 


This means that you will gain teaching experience while also doing fun activities and learning about Spain and Spanish culture.  


We also recommend Interrailing to and from the camp to add to the adventure and to experience backpacking. After the camp, you can step out onto the Camino de Santiago to take time to reflect on your experience and see more of Spain. We offer support and advice from a team that includes both experienced travellers and qualified teachers, on top of the support that is offered by the camp you are on.
