This was definitely Pranima's most daring project throughout its history. Based on the Eurorail's Interrail, we developed for the first time in Europe a summer camp in an Interrail assisted system for youngsters between 13 and 18 years old. The Alps InterRail passes through the cities of Munich, Salzburg, Vaduz, Interlaken, Zermatt and Milan, crossing the Alps in all its extension. All the train trips and city tours are a constant adventure and fun, providing knowledge by the experience.
Surely, we will briefly organize again this summer camp, not only by the energy it contains but also because it was undoubtedly one of the most remarkable experiences in the opinion of those who participated, a turning point in their lives.
Pranima has the project to acquaint young people with various European cities, developing in the participants an European culture, awareness of other realities and cultures, new countries, languages and activities, and also the opportunity to improve English language skills.
We don’t visit cities on a conventional touristic tour. Each city is discovered through games and scavenger’s hunt, providing learning opportunities to develop social skills. We promote the learning of new cultures and languages, through interaction with local people, visiting emblematic sites and discovering the little secrets of those cities.
Go where your imagination takes you and find out ...;)
The pedagogical team comprises one coordinator experienced with organising summer camp’s logistics, and several monitors with specialised training. The team will have a variable number of members depending on the number of participants, with an average of one monitor per 6/8 participants. Extra monitors and an assistant coordinator may reinforce the team when needed.
The group is organised in small teams, each one with a monitor and 6/8 participants in order to facilitate de dynamics and security inside de cities.
Youngsters from 13 to 18 years of age.
Minimum 20 – Maximum 85
Transportation between cities will be provided by train booked by Pranima, departing from Munich, and inner-city urban transports when visiting cities. Pranima will handle all these transport logistics.
As this will be an international travelling camp, accommodation will vary according to location, ranging from youth hostels, hotels and youngsters camp facilities with which Pranima has had ﬁrst hand experience, and provide all the facilities needed for comfort and quality standards, as well as safety standards.
In Assisted Interrail summer camp we will camp in Zermatt and Interlaken. In the rest of the cities we will sleep in hotels from the Accor Group.
The choice of the hotels will be made according to the number of campers.
Pranima provides ﬁve meals: breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner and supper.
In the cities, meals will be held in restaurants, as we get organised in teams. Monitors have detailed care as to provide a balanced set of meals for youngsters, choosing a healthy and varied diet.
When camping, meals are cooked by the group. Participants will be encouraged to engage in cooking some meals, namely barbecues and picnics, always under the supporting eye of the pedagogical team.
