  • English will be the main language

 What happens during the day?

  • communal start of the day at 10:00 am sharing the plans for the day and discussing practical issues
  • if you want to start the day by being mindful, join the yoga and meditation at 9:15 am or go walking in the hills
  • activities organized by the students

Are there any day trips?

Of course! We want to organise a group activity every other day. Some suggestions are below:

One day of outdoor activities to get to know each other better in challenging circumstances. When filling out the registration form you can let us know which activities you think serves this purpose best. For instance archery, canoeing/kayaking, climbing/abseiling, caving, canyoning raft building, mountain biking or hiking.


One day trip to Barcelona where students can choose their own programme  from the La Sargrada Familia, Parc Guell, shopping, cafes, or whatever else takes they fancy.
