40 years accompanying young people to enhance their growth and employability

And in summer… camping in the middle of nature!

Offering opportunities that change lives also means giving children and adolescents the opportunity to get to know new places, live with others, and enjoy a leisure time “far away” from home full of values. That’s what the camps that children in the Support for School Success program enjoy every summer offer.

This year, the summer camps of Fundación Tomillo have been held in the mountains of Madrid, in Guadarrama, in the middle of nature. During the camps, sports activities, workshops, handicrafts, artistic activities, songs, dances, group games, water games and communication activities have been carried out.

From July 31 to August 6, the “seniors” camp was held, where the participants, through the various activities proposed, developed outdoor living habits, while training their empathy. From August 10 to 16 we celebrated the second camping trip for the 12 to 15 years old group and, to finish the month, from August 21 to 27 we enjoyed the group of the “little ones”, from 8 to 11 years old.

These fun and intense days have allowed the children to develop healthy living habits in nature, practice empathy, creativity, cooperation and teamwork. An unforgettable summer!

Support for School Success is a program funded by La Caixa Foundation within the framework of Caixa ProInfancia, a program aimed at children in poverty and/or social exclusion and their families whose objective is to break the cycle of poverty through comprehensive intervention and networking that we carry out in the School of Opportunities.
