Kids enjoy with local Spanish children during breaks

The NewPa project is designed as an educational alternative based on transmitting the importance of values and environmental awareness through experiences of linguistic immersion.

 

At our camps, as in all our programmes, Spanish is used as a vehicular language to inspire children to have an interest in other cultures and give them the opportunity to put into practice what they have learnt in the classroom throughout the year.

We firmly believe education is the basis of all changes. The NewPa program is an initiative that brings children closer to nature and through it, combines values and education to form "Econscience".

We are growing little by little and, with each step, we incorporate new workshops and experiences constantly for the children thanks to our multicultural team. Therefore, we are exposed to different teaching methodologies and practices and we work absorbing what is best in them.

One of the main characteristics of our immersions is the dedication and care put into the design and development of our programs. We are an environmentally aware company and our education material is home-made from recycled and sustainable products to help promote our values- responsibility, respect and solidarity.

Our goals go hand in hand with the excitement and the desire to do things the correct way that make us pay special attention and care to the design of our summer camps.

Monitors & Educators

Multicultural

Our monitors and educators are the basis of our programmes. They are dynamic, responsible and enthusiastic people with high experience working with children. They firmly believe in the project so they can actually be a role model

 

All of them, native and bilinguals, are full with resources to awake in children the interest to speak Spanish. They will do it through encouragement and by the arisen curiosity to meet other cultures. All of this will be very enriching your children, not only during their time at camp, but for their future.

The Camp Director guaranties that all the activities are running correctly and is constantly available  for whatever needs that may come up and for the families.

 

We will also have among the staff the valuable help of native and bilingual Volunteers, that assist the monitors and help in daily routines as they learn and are trained to become the future monitors that will lead camps.

For NewPa the meals are a very important and significant moment of the day.

We wanted to give children a leading role in all this and instead of being mere receivers, they become the responsible MasterChefs that they have inside.

Under the supervision of the team of monitors, the children choose the menu from a selection of carefully prepared dishes by an expert nutritionist, they have to calculate the rations, the budget and the total necessary before going to the shop to supply their kitchen.

A healthy and responsible diet is essential to understand the importance of sustainability that we want to transmit in NewPa. Therefore, the consumption of meat and fish will be done in a balanced way and always coming from ethically raised animals (free range chickens, extensive livestock and sustainable fishing).
They will discover new flavors and combinations that they will want to repeat at home!

 

All this is dealt with strict care and caution considering possible allergies and intolerance of participants, organising children in very small work groups supervised at all times.

3Rs

We also emphasise the importance of the 3 Rs showing many examples in our activities and workshops to reach Reduction, Reuse and Recycling.

 

Location & Safety

Our summer camps are held in the Natural Park of Peña Cabarga, next to Cabárceno (Santander-Cantabria).

La Estrella farm welcomes our activity in its beautiful lands in the middle of Socabarga. They work extensive livestock in exemplary fields with the perfect balance between forest and meadow.

All the monitors are well trained and prepared to provide security and ensure compliance with the rules to avoid situations of risk. Likewise, everyone knows the protocols if there was an emergency.

In case of need, the health center is only 7 minutes away by car in the town of Astillero and the Valdecilla hospital (Santander), 5 minutes further.

All our camps have civil liability insurance and accident insurance.

How to get here

By ferry

Brittany Ferries sail from Portsmouth twice a week, on a Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. The journey takes between 24-36 hours. It’s just a 17 minute drive from Santander port to the NewPa camp in Peña Cabarga.

By flight

Most UK airports fly to either Bilbao or Santander and car hire is available at both airports. We’re 11 minutes drive from Seve Ballesteros-Santander Airport and around 75 minutes from Bilbao Airport.

By train

You can catch a train to Santander but there is usually a stop in Paris and potential further stops. Visit Trainline for options. From Santander, there is a Renfe train that runs to Astillero or San Salvador.

By bus

Some coach companies operate an overnight service to Santander with at least one stop in Paris. You can use a website aggregator, such as Busbud to compare operators and travel options.
