Bambini Summer Camp
August 7, 2017 - August 14, 2017€2200 – €3200
We are happy to introduce the third edition of kids Summer Camp at Spannocchia! This program is designed to be a family friendly week of activities that keep kids engaged and give parents the chance to enjoy life on an organic Tuscan farm.
An ideal way to actively introduce your children to the culture, cuisine and organic farming of Italy, this program, focused on food and farming, offers seven days of full immersion where children have the opportunity to learn some of the Italian language, cook with ingredients they harvest fresh from the garden, visit the farm animals and learn about where our food comes from, among other activities that are all integrated with drawing and writing to reflect and remember every part of the experience.
We have adapted many of Spannocchia’s classes and tours normally geared towards adults so that they will be fun and informative for children aged 6 to 12 years. We will teach simple recipes and how to make them once the children return home, including salame dolce, fresh pasta, bruschetta and many other Tuscan specialties. The week includes an afternoon and dinner in Siena during the Palio days, and another day dedicated to a nature hike and swim in the nearby stream.
We invite children under the age of 6 to participate as long as they are always chaperoned by a parent or guardian. There are two hours of activities scheduled in the mornings and two hours in the afternoons, which would also give a great opportunity for parents to have some free time to themselves during these sessions. Parents are responsible for their children when there are no scheduled activities by Spannocchia staff. A babysitter can be scheduled at a rate of €15 per hour (max 3-4 kids, depending on age, per babysitter).
Program cost includes: 1. Daily activities and classes for children. 2. Seven nights’ accommodations at Spannocchia. 3. Transportation from the Florence airport to Spannocchia on the day of arrival, transportation for all scheduled off-property excursions, and transportation to Florence on departure day. 4. All meals at Spannocchia beginning with dinner on Monday, August 7th, through lunch on Monday, August 14th. Also included is a group dinner in nearby Siena – 21 meals total.
Program costs not included: 1. Airfare. Individuals will be responsible for purchasing their own flights. NOTE: Please check with the group coordinator prior to booking a flight to ensure proper arrival time. 3. Admission to any museums or other non-scheduled off-property attractions. 5. Any classes, tours, and tastings offered at Spannocchia other than scheduled ones for children with this program.
