- Summer camp

TRIBO is the natural result of Caminhos da Infância mission since the very beginning: to promote the welfare of children and families. It features 3 annual summer sleepaway camps for 35 children, supervised by 14 monitors and one coordinator each.

TRIBO

Organizing these camps is the task of a Technical Director, with the support of the Steering Board.

Our association doesn’t own a big enough venue in a natural environment to hold these camps. So, every year, we contact private and public players to find that special place that fits our TRIBO goals.

And TRIBO aims to fulfill a few goals. On one hand, we want to meet family needs; on the other, we want to offer children a totally new scenario where they can enhance their knowledge, explore challenging spaces and develop attitude and values.

We have camped at Convento do Varatojo, in Torres Vedras and at Quinta da Narcisa, in Santarém!
