Good morning families!

Here you have the last video blog of English Summer Vallclara 2014. We also attach the link of the BrightValley’s Kingdom, a party where students had to look for the murderer of Lord Julius in order to safe George Hood and release the Kingdom.

Yesterday was sadly the last complete day here at English Summer Vallclara. Children had time to review all the lessons done, and then they took the last exam. In the afternoon they started packing a little bit and they went to the swimming pool. In the afternoons, the monitors distributed several World Championship awards. Friends and Love night was the last party of the turn. We all got to see some of the pictures taken during the turn. Then, teachers, MP’s, monitors and directives had the chance to say some thankful and farewell words. Some of the students participated as well. Here we attach a beautiful and very emotional speech written by some of the kids:

Hace 6 años, en 2009, Armand Vallès tenía 5 años, Xavi Invernon tenía 7 y yo (Albert Sánchez) 6. Entonces éramos los más pequeños de la casa. A pesar de nuestra edad, todavía guardamos muchísimos recuerdos de aquella primera vez en Vallclara. De aquel año nos acordamos de Pau que ya era el Director y de Jeims que era nuestro monitor. Dos años más tarde, llegó Pol. Cada año hemos disfrutado al máximo. Pero lo que es más importante es que hemos conseguido pasárnoslo siempre mejor que el año anterior. Podemos decir que Vallclara es como nuestra segunda casa. Aquí hemos conocido a muchísimas personas. Desde compañeros, MP’s, monitores y directores. Estamos convencidos de que vamos a recordarles durante muchos años. Lo malo es que todo llega a su fin. Nunca hubiéramos imaginado que este día iba a llegar. Antes de despedirnos, queremos recordar el ejemplo que los monitores año tras año vuelven para revivir recuerdos de cuando ellos eran alumnos. También queremos dar el consejo: no perdáis nunca el contacto con los amigos que hagáis aquí y nunca olvidéis Vallclara.  NOSOTROS NO LO HAREMOS!

Armand Vallès, Xavi Invernon y Albert Sánchez.

We would like to thank all the families to trust on us, and specially the children because they made it so easy to have a very successful turn here at English Summer Vallclara.

Farewell, and see you next year!

Yesterday morning as always kids took some English lessons. In the afternoon they had one more hour of class and time to go to the summing pool. Right after, instead of playing sports with their Olympic teams, they took part of different clubs. They could choose between dancing, experimenting with divers percussion instruments, making some arts and crafts or taking an orientation race adventure.

At night, the Surf Party took place on the beach volleyball court. That was the last disco here at English Summer Vallclara. Children danced like crazy one song after the other. We also had an MP costume competition. They dressed up as a shark, jellyfish, crab, Nemo and starfish. Moreover, we played limbo which consisted into passing through under a stick without touching it. Núria Salgado was the winner together with Albert Sánchez and Pedro Hernández. They gained a nice lunch on the terrace served by the director of Vallclara. Before going to bed, we sang the song of the turn and kids start crying because they don’t want to leave their friends. That was a very emotional moment.

Hello everyone!

First of all, let us remember that we are uploading a video blog everyday were the students explain us the different activities in Vallclara! Click here!

Yesterday was another common day here at English Summer Vallclara. In the morning kids dedicated several hours learning English at class doing all sort of dynamic activities. In the early afternoon, they took one more lesson and right after they went to the swimming pool with their friends and monitors. Following, children spend some time playing sports with their Olympic teams.

At night, the Rock ‘n’ roll party took place. Nevertheless, we had some troubles with the weather. The party was already set outside on the volleyball court but unfortunately it start pouring rain. That is why our amazing monitors had to rush into flipping over the event indoors. The party went great! This is an event that had been performed since 1980, when the Fleix family started with the first summer camp here in Vallclara. The kids and us love it and that is why we keep on the tradition. There was also a partner dancing rock ‘n’ roll competition.

Good morning families,

In the following post we are going to summarize our busy and awesome weekend for you.

Friday night we hosted the British Party here at English Summer Vallclara. This night was mainly prepared by our lovely teachers and there were plenty of surprises. The spice girls showed up and sang a song for us. Mister Ben visited together with the famous British group One Direction. We also had the honer to receive the Queen of England, Prince William, Princess Kate, and of course their baby George. After a brief presentation, and several speeches, the kids had to go around the house, performing a wide range of challenges. Those activities were executed by sport teams, so that they were able to acquire points for the Olympic Competition. There was also a lot of dancing as always! After the British night, the kids went straight to bed. They had to gain energy for the busy day that was waiting for us.

Saturday was an exciting day for all of us. We went to Port Aventura! Kids had the chance to go on many rides around the amusement park together with their monitors. The day turned out to be perfect as well as the weather.

Sunday was more of a relaxing day. Children start off the day by taking a breakfast in bed together with their roommates. In the morning kids went around the house and watched the famous animated movie Frozen. During the afternoon, they went to the swimming pool and played sports with their Olympic teams. Afterwards, they had some time to prepare the Talent Show that was coming up. At night the party took place and every single group of students performed a show. The oldest group of boys of the house won! Congratulations!

English Summer 2V2014 – Fourth Day

Another beautiful, sunny and warm day here at English Summer Vallclara. Yesterday it was the photos and video day. Our camera man came visit and spend all day with us recording what a typical day looked like and taking several pictures. In the morning after breakfast,  children took some classes as always. In the afternoon they spend an hour on the swimming pool, diving in and getting cool off. Then they had some soccer, basketball, volleyball and handball matches with their Olympic teams.

At night, we hosted a Roman party. All the students, monitors and teachers got dressed up as in the Medieval times. The staff performed a play and we had a wonderful dinner on the garden taking advantage of the weather. Afterwards, kids got divided into two different groups and the challenge was getting the ingredients for a magic potion that Asterix and Obelix would drink. The potion would provide them enough energy to beat the Romans. In order to get the magic potion, the kids had to go around the house and accomplish various activities. It was an excellent party and kids had lots of fun.

Tomorrow Saturday, it is one of the most exciting days of the turn because we will be going to Port Aventura! The kids can’t wait to spend an amazing day there with their friends and monitors. We will keep you posted on the blog.

Good morning everyone!

The day went by pretty fast. In the morning right after waking up, the kids had some froggy games and breakfast. Right after, the they went to class and had some English lessons. The teachers are aware of the fact that it is summer time and so more than ever, they need to provide dynamic and fun classes. Here at English Summer Vallclara, the kids learn trough songs, plays and all sorts of educational activities. Moreover, one of the advanced classes is setting short-term daily goals which helps them improving and looking towards their personal English purposes.

In the afternoon, they went to the swimming pool. We had a local visitor, a goose, which came to say hello to the kids before running away. Then, had the opportunity to take part in several clubs. There were different options such as: dancing, experimenting with divers percussion instruments, making some arts and crafts or taking an orientation race adventure.

At night, there was a surprise party which turned out to be a white disco. Children, monitors and teachers put on white outfits and danced. The teachers and monitors had a dance-off which was surprisingly won by the teachers. They rocked it and the kids were cheering up.

Here we show you today’s video blog, focused on the english classes and party from tuesday!

Good morning mommies and daddies,

The kids are already completely immersed in the English Summer Vallclara‘s routine. In the morning just right after waking up, children put their energy together and headed towards different parts of the summer camp. There were several game stations called froggy games. Those are made to help kids starting off the day on the right track, awake, and ready to take a nutritious breakfast. Right after, time to go to class and acquire some English knowledge.

In the afternoon taking advantage of a sunny and beautiful day, we went for a swim at the swimming pool and get refreshed. Next, the kids got together with their sport teams and the Olympic competition began. Then all of them jumped into the shower and got ready for dinner and Bright Valley’s Kingdom’s night.

We carefully watched a video of a thriller. The night was set on the medieval ages and there had been a murder on the valley. The kids were in charge of finding out who was guilty of the crime. In order to discover the responsible of such a terrible action, they had to go around the town and overcome various activities which would lead them to the ultimate evidence of the crime. That was an enjoyable night full of surprises and challenges!

As we said in the last post and after some small technical problems, finally we can show you our second video blog of the term! Here you are, enjoy it! ;)
