A FAMILY OF PASSIONATE HORSE ENTHUSIASTS
The camp is run by Jeannine Camps, a journalist and former war correspondent who retired to this privileged corner of the Pyrenees to enjoy her passion for horses together with her partner, Gaizka Echegaray, founder and technical director of the equestrian centre, who leads the team of horse riding teachers. Among its staff is Jeannine's daughter, of American nationality, who studied Biology in England. As well as being an excellent horsewoman, she is also in charge of enhancing the English classes through conversations with the young people.
“What makes our camp so unique is the cosmopolitan atmosphere that exists between the young people from so many different countries and the strong and lasting friendships they make; and without a doubt that is all possible because of the horses and the nature that surrounds us”
— Jeannine Camps
From the very start, the camp has sought to offer an unforgettable experience for young people from around the world on the basis of horses, nature and languages. It offers a mixture of fun and learning based on education and respect.
