Ecotober Teen Camp!

I am delighted to be able to offer this unique half-term programme, incorporating the principles of creativity, cooperation, health, wellness and sustainable living.

The week will be held from 31st October to 4th November at a finca and casita in rural Llucmajor.   With a day programme and a residential option, the week will be fully supervised and facilitated by myself, fully qualified and experienced teacher, workshop leader and nutritional adviser.  I will be ably assisted by the finca residents, Charles and Sheila Eden.

Values:

Sustainability, wholeness, non-harm, creativity, harmony, peace, self esteem.

Objectives:

  • To develop an understanding of ‘connectedness’  (In the sense of our minds being connected to our bodies, our connectedness to, and inter-reliance on other people, and nature
  • To disconnect from technology and reconnect with self, others and nature
  • To learn key concepts in nutrition, how to select and balance good foods, and how to combine and cook them
  • To understand the importance of educating not only our minds, but our bodies, through movement and physical activity.
  • Use children’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm for the outdoors to introduce them to ideas of sustainable living
  • To understand the concept of reduce, reuse, recycle through art and practical projects
  • To develop basic DIY skills
  • To expose ‘campers’ to the concept of ecoliteracy
