WE CAN NOT HOST MORE WORKAWAYERS UNTIL NEXT YEAR
Hi! We are a family who runs a school camp for children and families!
We do many activities almost every month of the year with kids from all the ages to discover the culture of our small village, Horta de Sant Joan, and the nature of the Natural Park we have in front of our house, Els Ports.
The ones you will meet first are us: my father Jordi, our dog Duc and me, Júlia.
We speak Catalan, Spanish, English and a bit of French and Italian (and we are always ready to learn new words and expressions from you and your native language!).
Apart from all of that, we are 8-10 people in the team and we are willing to grow to give more kids the experience of discovering one of the less-known parts of Catalonia.
I would like to add that all of our activities are NOT competitive and are related to the individual creativity and autonomy. I'm in love with Summerhill way to "teach" kids and I really believe in the dialogue, wheter you are a kid or an adult. Everyone deserves our trust even in the hard moments, so I won't never let anyone to apply a punishment or to speak badly to someone else.
Babysitting / child care
If you come to Catalonia, we will do our best to show you some of the most known places, but the good thing of what where we live, is the peace and nature that we have all around.
You will discover a small village called Horta de Sant Joan and really awesome rivers plenty of life. You will feel like Picasso, when he came here at the age of 19, plenty of energy and prepared to discover a different rural culture.
Here, you can practice or learn Spanish and Catalan. Kids also will love to explain you things in their Spanglish (a mix between Spanish and English) or to show you what they know about the nature, our culture... Be ready to listen a looot of exciting stories ;)
We think it's a good opportunity for you to see a different way of interaction with kids and families: neither competition or violent games nor punishments. You will be surrounded by joy, songs, clues games and a sense of community.
Aaaand finally, you will have to tell us what you like the most. So we can think as a team how to convert your hobbie into an activity for the children (if you are OK with it, of course). We are completely sure that this will make you and the kids enjoy even more the stay in our camp :)
Do you need ideas? Then search us on instagram to see other monitors' activities ;) !

Monitooooors here! Kids are waiting for you!
We need you to:
--> Be between 18 and 28 years old.
--> To speak English fluently
--> To be independent from other monitors. So, if you are alone with 10 kids for a moment, you need to know how to deal with it.
---> To be creative: we can get different materials to prepare many activities but we want to make kids live new and original experiencies, so please think about games related to your culture, your language... :) (We are not teachers, we act more like "big brothers and sisters" with them, so it's better to think about funny dances, gymkhanas... ).
---> To be very polite: kids are learning from you from the moment they arrive. So you have to be clean, polite and mature enough to play with them without letting them 'hesitate' you. Apart from that, we are always explaining everything we are doing to their teachers, so we have to know how to be respectful and patient.
We normally work with Catalan monitors but this year we think it will be cool to have also monitors from abroad because this will switch on the kids' curiosity ;)
All the activities programs are already made, but we are very very lucky because our job lets us improvise and add new cool ideas (if kids like so, of course). All the programs are made between 1 day and 5 days. The kids and the teachers are 24h with us so it's pretty easy to get along with them.
Soooo, (I'm finishing, I promise!) we want you to come here with ideas about how you would show your culture through a game to kids (remember, without competitition) and in which language would you like to speak (here in Catalonia most kids only know Catalan, Spanish and a liiiittle bit of English but they are fast creating new ways to interact with people from all over the world ;) ).
Spanish, Catalan, English and a bit of French and Italian
You will be in a shared room. With boys if you are a boy and with girls if you are a girl. Every room has its own bathroom but you will also be able to use the toilets and the showers of the hostel.
There is the possibility that you sleep alone while there are no kids at the hostel, because the other monitors will go back to their homes until the next group comes but it is ok, you will never be alone at home and you will always have our contact numbers :)
Everyday you will have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our team eats everything but I'm vegetarian, so if you want vegetarian or vegan too, just ask for it and we will prepare it for you too.
We try to eat organic products as much as we can so if you have knowledge about gardening vegetables and fruits we will be so glad to learn with you!
And last but not least: First, you will be with us two or three weeks to see if we all feel good together. If everything is OK, you can stay with us as long as you want until mid-June :)
When you are not working you can take our bike and go around the villages from Terres de l'Ebre.
If you like nature, you can walk around to find rivers, mountains, local events... My father and me are always going around with the car (which is 100% electric ;) ) so we can combine your free time with our trips to help you discover more places such as Barcelona, Lleida, Tortosa, Tarragona...
It's a bit hard to move around with public transport but we will help you as much as we can with it, with BlaBlaCars, etc.
