Students have a lot to study, but even more to learn. By taking them on a trip like the Camino de Santiago, they will enjoy a first-hand experience that will shape them and prepare them for the future – all while enjoying nature, exercising, and challenging their beliefs about themselves. EduCamino is a win-win for them!
Over the years, many schools, high schools, colleges, and universities have trusted our EduCamino program to deliver a much-needed non-formal education to their students. Our Camino adventure sees student groups walk the historic last 100 km (around 62 miles) of the Camino de Santiago, reaching the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and the tomb of the Apostle St James.
On the Way, students feel an improvement in their self-esteem and teamwork skills, but they also learn about history, geography, and of course – Spanish! Spoken by 400 million people worldwide, Spanish is currently the 4th most spoken language in the world. And although there are many ways to learn, immersing yourself in the culture has been proven to be the best option to achieve long-term language abilities.
But there are other benefits to walking the Camino as a student:
- The Camino unfolds your student’s curiosity
- It’s an opportunity to explore Spain’s rich history in a fun way
- They will discover a different culture and learn about the differences that shape our world
- They will meet new people, and broaden their horizons.
