Provider Profile: La Mandorla
Tucked in nature in Priorat, La Mandorla is a little piece of heaven facing the mountains of the Monsant.
What started as a project to build a self sufficient family life, turned into a sustainable nature center where Anoushka and her family welcome kids, teens and families during camp season and on weekends.
During the summer time, La Mandorla turns into a sleepover summer camp or "colonia" where kids and teens ages 5-14 bond over a shared living experience, discovering an authentic way of life, in complete harmony with nature.
During 5 days and 5 nights, they sleep in yurts, take care of the animals, build treehouses, pick seasonal fruits, practice martial arts, enjoy various arts and crafts and manual activities, and once a week take part in an outing in the nearby Siurana river.
Through these activities, students learn about nature, its cycles, wildlife and the elements.
Kids returning from La Mandorla Summer Camp feel highly energised from experiencing a unique life adventure. They loved the feeling of freedom and can't wait to go back the following summer!
The founder, Anouchka, is originally from the mountainous Savoie region, in France. She worked as a primary school teacher for 8 years before moving to Spain 15 years ago. She is also a mom of 3 girls, a nature lover and a "wild child" at heart.
