Summer on the Farm

 Program Presentation

 

Photos From The First Edition

 

Starting in 2016, Pranima has partnered with Quinta da Escola (School Farm). About one hour away from Lisbon, in an Environmental Educational Center located in the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros National Park, we will be developing several activities that allow kids from 6 to 17 years of age to have a direct contat with nature.

Why not rappel in a cave? Or climb a natural wall in a safe way? How about a Slide in the middle of the Serra de Aire e do Candeeiro Natural Park, or a BTT ride in a planned course.

The greatest advantage is the fact that this Ecological Center is in the midst of a lush Natural Park, making it possible to enjoy nature and be a part of a wide range of activities that will make these vacations a collection of unforgettable moments.

The Campsite has it’s own swimming pool and we will also enjoy the Alviela River in order to develop our aquatic activities in the safety that this river beach provides.

This Camp will have 7-day shifts that allow us to have an intense educational program that allows parents to coordinate their own vacations’ beginning or end.

Kids from 7 to 18 years old.

Minimum 20 participants. Maximum 60 participants.
