La Granja is a centre for school camps that began its educational activity in 1984. Since 2004, and due to the emotional shortcomings we observed in many children who came to visit our facilities, we began to train the personal and social abilities of our youngsters, becoming the first Ability Training Center in the country.
With Centres in Barcelona (Santa Maria de Palautordera) and Madrid (Fuentidueña del Tajo), we are devoted to bringing nature, farm animals and horses closer to school children from all over the country, as well as training their emotional competences by doing activities and using adventure circuits with the application of a method, the certified La Granja Method©, the results of which (an increase in the five emotional competences after their visit to La Granja) have been scientifically proven by the GROP (Educational Psychology Orientation Research Group) of the University of Barcelona.
Over 18.000 children and youngsters come to La Granja every year; they usually come with their school or institute during the school year for camps or day visits… we also have many children who come to our summer camps when school is over.
Teachers, professors, college students, families and even business managers visit our facilities every year to train their emotional competences stemming from the practice and experience offered by emotional education.
At the Fundación La Granja, created in 2010, our main objective is to promote Emotional Education as a basic educational tool, with the aim to help schools, teachers and families in the difficult task of educating. Amongst other things, we subsidize school camps for children with few financial resources. In each of the centre’s webs you will find all the info on our foundation.
