Activities for children in the summer
« on: April 23, 2012, 01:13:43 PM »
I am thinking of doing a Spanish course in Granada maybe at Carmen de las Cuevas.

I have already booked accomodation at the Casa Palmera

We have 2 children of 6 and 10 years old.

Does anyone know of some activities in Granada which may be suitable for my children?

I don't have children myself so I asked a guitarmaker friend who lives in Granada and this is his reply.

Probably not ideal because it is out of town but great because you could dump english-speaking kids there for two weeks and they would be in a very spanish environment but at the same time communication would not be a problem because they have English teachers there.  I used to work there teaching.

These two places have week-long summer courses for young children (4 to 5 hours per day) which are very good.  My nephew went last summer.  I can't find any info on the page though, you might have to call.

this is where we send Tommy in July and he seems to do fine.  Again, very little info on the page.

 These people do stuff for kids, although I don't know about summer.

There are a number of high-priced country clubs in town that bend over backwards for kids (if you are a member).  You never know if that would accept temporary members.

Some of the private music schools in Granada might do summer courses.

hope this helps,
