SUMMER CAMPS IN SPAIN SINCE 1985
Castillo de Layos is a full time family-run business. It was born in 1985, thanks to the memories of American Camps. We thought in an ideal model to make great experiences for kids first time out of home. We then started a family adventure that convoques children and youth from all overt the world.
For the younger ones, life at camp is a golden opportunity for personal development. They learn to be self-sufficient in the most basic things such as getting dressed, eating, or being clean and tidy.They manage to do this with kids who are in their same situation, gaining personal autonomy and discipline with the least of efforts.
For the older ones, it is an opportunity to make new friends and take on new challenges and adventures. The arrival of campers from all over the world enriches our programmes and prepares our campers for this global world.
For those interested in reinforcing their spanish skills, Layos Camp is in collaboration with the University of Castilla La Mancha. Campers will be able to come back home with spanish acredited classes by the Instituto Cervantes. In addition, our counsellors will give them the opportunity to live in an ideal enviroment where they will correct them in a constant and fun way.
As we add to this little things, learning a new sport, the adventure of doing new things, living simply, generosity, and coexistence our kids get back home "bigger" and more conscious of their possibilities.
Today more than ever we believe in the effectiveness of our work. Layos Camp is a project worth living and working for.
The leading role of sport in most of our programs allows our philosophy to be geared towards sportsmanship and its values: camaraderie, respect, the fight to overcome, and teamwork. We want to promote a love of nature and sports, without forgetting the creative side of the students using theatre, music, art, and cultural excursions.
AGES between 6 to 17
Our camps are divided into three diferent age groups with the aim that the campers have fun and do activities with others of the same age
In all of our centers, we prepare the food with products of the highest quality and, of course, with lots of love. We create menus especially thought out for kids, a healthy and balanced diet which will keep their batteries charged. The children eat with their room counsellor. We have a variety of options for children with food intolerances, allergies, or special diets.
All of the camps are less than 5 minutes to a medical center, and 15 minutes to a hospital. A licensed lifeguard and a graduate in medicine are in charge of the infirmary and the daily care of the children.
All of the children are covered by accident insurance. It will be required for every children to bring in their baggage a photocopy of their Social Security card or, in its absence, their private insurance for possible illnesses. Foreign children also need an obligatory travelers’ insurance which will be provided to them by Layos Camp in order to speed up the procedures in the case of any possible incident.
The price is €50 for Europeans, and €100 for non-Europeans.
We include incoming and outgoing transportation from Madrid to the camp in all our programs. We call the parents to a meeting point, and the children always travel with counsellors.
Layos Camp offers a pick-up and drop-off service at the airport or station for children who are travelling from abroad, with the price to be specified with the office depending on the schedule. We will need the full data on arrival and departure.
