The environmental summer house of the Emys Foundation takes place during the months of June, July, August and September in the municipalities of Sils (Jacint Verdaguer School), Riudarenes (Can Moragues) and Les Planes d'Hostoles (St. Cristòfol School ). Linked to direct contact with nature and experiential learning, the environmental summer camp allows children to develop a series of unique and complete values and characteristics regarding the nature around us.
The development schedule was different for each of the municipalities, being mainly the schedule from 9 to 15 hours. For children between 3 and 12 years old.
The activities carried out in the environmental center are completely linked to direct learning with nature and what surrounds us. This year, the theme of the summer house allowed us to enter the magical world of fantastic animals that we have in the region of La Selva, in the case of Sils and Riudarenes.
Each week we discovered which animal was endangered in our territory and protected it by creating magical animals to deal with all the threats to which they are exposed. In the case of Les Planes d’Hostoles, we focused on the Guinness World Record, making the jury (children and monitors) each week choose the fastest, most colorful, slow-moving animal, etc.
