Registration for “Summer weeks in the woods” is now open, for the weeks between 3 and 28 July 2023. What are these “weeks” exactly?

The pedagogists and educators who organise this activity believe that the woods are a particularly stimulating environment for children.

The benefits of the forest and the natural environment around it can support your child’s cognitive development and aid in the most important aspect of their growth: exercise, physical activity, emotionality and relationship skills.

The summer camp is supported by the scientific principles of Waldpädagogik, experiential learning and constructivist pedagogies. Simply stated, the inspiring principle is to stimulate children to explore natural phenomena with scientific awareness.

The activity’s focus is on the educational value of learning through discovery. The aim is to explore, so that children learn to love Nature and the planet, learning to deal with phenomena with a critical and analytical approach.


The summer camp is for children aged between 3 and 6 years. They will be taken to the Val di Ledro forest from Riva del Garda to discover the beauty of the natural environment. Children must bring their packed lunch and snack.

  • Camp hours: from 9:00 to 15:00
  • Cost per week: 220 Euro, discounts for siblings (200 Euro per week).

The number of available places is 20.
