Summer camps in English at the Benagéber Reservoir

Unforgettable English camp in Valencia for your children

Teaching methodology

Our methodology of teaching English in the follows a program of proven effectiveness . During the workshops our native English teachers present the syllabus through powerpoint demonstrations with the help of projectors, thus capturing the maximum attention of the students.

After teaching the agenda we started a round of questions and answers . Teachers only speak to students in English , always adapted to the age and level of the students and they must ask and answer in English . When the oral expression and comprehension session ends, we begin to put the workshops into practice. Everything to enjoy the .

Some of our workshops in the Valencian Community:

The advantage of having experience organizing dives

The experience of several years managing the English camp in Valencia has shown us that the activities of a bivouac : workshops, excursions, multi-adventure, nocturnal activities … must be coordinated with each other and have a bond of unity day by day with a progressive motivation to the end of the camp. All our workshops are linked to each other and to the multi – adventure activities in the form of a contest in English .

English summer camp

Students compete with their teams to earn the maximum points and thus get the prize of the camp . Progressively, the students integrate and increase their knowledge of English throughout the summer camp in Valencia.

In the nocturnal activities of our summer bivouacs the results of the day are presented with powerful projectors, promoting teamwork and good fellowship among all the competitors. The result is very refreshing summer camps in Valencia .

FUN, ENGLISH AND ADVENTURE !!

 Benagéber Reservoir and summer camps in English Valencia

A little history of the Benagéber Reservoir in Valencia

Thousands of young people , teenagers, boys and girls, and tourists visit the Benagéber holiday centers in Valencia every year, its forests, jetties, the reservoir and the summer camp at the top of the mountain. Some arrive to relax a few days, others to go hiking, canyoning, school gatherings between England and Spain, various multi-adventure activities, water sports or simply practice and improve a language in the English summer camp . But of all of them few are those who know the history that hides after their deserved days of rest.

RED MORE

The Benagéber reservoir can be found in the course of the river Turia , in the province of Valencia. Specifically in the region of Los Serranos , in Benagéber, a town that is part of the Mancomunidad del Alto Turia and that in 2013 had a census of 216 inhabitants. But that was not always the case. Actually the town was divided into three when the monumental works of the dam began in 1933, a part moved to San Antonio de Benagéber (near Valencia city), another to San Isidro de Benagéber (near Monacada), and the third kilometers of the swamp.Needless to say, they were forced to leave their homes , their land, and all for the .

Town of Banagéber before the eviction

The proper name that he receives now is not the one he had years ago, in fact he even had up to three differentnames . First Pantano de Blasco Ibáñez , after San Bartolomé, and later the Generalissimo . Because of that and because it was inaugurated in 1952, it is usually attributed to General Franco, but nothing is further from reality.

It all started when the early twentieth century wanted to take advantage of the abundance of water flow in the area, and following the ideas of the time wanted to facilitate the development of the country by investing in large public works, especially in the Valencian Community unattractive in that sense. The Government of 1902 projected the National Plan of Hydraulic Works where they wanted to make up to 296 works designed to improve irrigation. Within that plan was the construction of a dam in Lácava, but in 1912 a new project for the area was presented which made the previous one to be rejected, and already in 1933 the head of the Hydrographic Studies Center together with the Minister of Public Works decided on the Benagéber reservoir inValencia , and in that same year the works began.

Later The Spanish Civil War motivated the paralysis of works that were already very advanced. Once the war is over, the project is resumed and the Francoist authorities decide to use political prisoners to carry out the most dangerous tasks. It is not known how many left their lives in the project. Finally in 1955 its construction is completed , leaving behind a whole history of pain and uprooting . Even today, the descendants of the former inhabitants of Benagéber (and those who still live) meet once a year in August to share and remember their roots .

Thanks to the effort and sacrifice of those men today we can enjoy a reservoir that occupies 722 hectares , with a capacity of up to 228 cubic hectometres. And not only the irrigators of the Valencian community take advantage of it through the Campos del Turia channel, but nature lovers and outdoor activities also have theValdeserrillas natural reserve of 365 hectares, as well as a holiday center where they celebrate all kinds ofsocial gatherings, multi-adventure sports, , etc. Without forgetting the solar boat to make fluvial routes located in the wharf of Fuente Muñoz . And all that at just one hour from Madrid.

Now, when you visit the reservoir or spend a few days in your summer camp, you will know how to value everything that the environment hides in its history. Let’s not forget it!
