One of the aims of the Rafael del Pino Foundation is to contribute to the training of Spanish leaders, both present and future, and to promote entrepreneurial activity.
The Foundation is relaunching the initiative it developed in previous years, in which people with high abilities and similar concerns were able to learn, share and enjoy together.
In this edition we will again have a maximum of 70 places, with similar contents, although with the adaptation of knowledge and learning of each student so that students who have already enjoyed the campus can attend as well as new candidates.
We will have training workshops, skills and competences workshops, leisure programme and sports activities. All this in an exceptional environment.
Who can participate?
Participants will be young people identified and accredited as "high ability", aged between 10 and 18 years (calendar year).
The training and leisure programme will include workshops on personal and social skills aimed at improving competences such as: creativity and innovation, teamwork, leadership, initiative, self-confidence and entrepreneurship.
Where and when?
The Campus will be held at the GSD Buitrago, the centre located at the entrance of Buitrago de Lozoya, between Sunday 16 and Friday 28 July.
Parents must accompany their children on Sunday 16th at 11:00 h. to the headquarters of the Rafael del Pino Foundation, located at Calle Rafael Calvo, 39 -corner with Pº de la Castellana, 37- in Madrid and pick them up on Friday 28th at 16:30 h. Families will be called to the same place to attend the closing session of the Campus (from 16:30 to 18:30) and pick up the participants.
The Campus, in addition to those responsible for academic and skills/abilities training, will have a monitor for every 10 students, who will accompany them in leisure and sports activities.
The programme includes breakfast, mid-morning fruit, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner. It is important that parents inform the organisers if their son or daughter has any food allergies or intolerances as well as any medications or special care (declaration of illnesses or pathologies).
For your peace of mind, Buitrago has a permanent medical and nursing service.
To pre-register you must fill in the following form the application before 2 May 2023, through this platform by means of this form
It is important to note the concerns of the pupil, parents and the assessment of a teacher or tutor at their school.
In addition, the assessment report certifying high ability and the latest available report card must be enclosed.
Our aim is to get to know the candidate as well as possible. For this reason we will also have a personal interview.
The Rafael del Pino Foundation is making an enormous effort to offer a campus of these characteristics and, in the same way, a certain co-responsibility is asked of the families, so that, between all of them, they will have to cover the expenses related to carrying out the campus in Buitrago.
The Selection Committee will meet to evaluate the applications and establish the amounts allocated to each family.
NO PARENTS' VISITING DAY
Parents are requested to refrain from attending the camp. Attendance breaks the rhythm of the day's activities, as well as being an inconvenience for all those young people who do not receive visitors.
After the Campus
Students will be invited to various workshops throughout the academic year in order to maintain contact, share activities and incorporate new knowledge and skills. They will be able to write stories in order to build a new book of The adventure of words: stories by young writers, sharing concerns with young scientists or entrepreneurs, taking part in improvisation workshops, playing maths games with Divermatesexperimenting with cardiac coherence tools and other dynamics...
