“The residence is a comfortable, high-quality residence with excellent common areas for the participants to enjoy their free time. That being said, the Àgora residence is an external residence for university students as well, which means participants can enter and exit as they please. Please contact Ertheo for more information.” – ERTHEO

SAFETY

The camp takes place at the Barcelona High-performance Academy campus in the city of Barcelona, Spain. For the participants’ safety and health, academy staff includes physiotherapists, physical trainers, nutritionists, and sports psychologist.

Spain is considered a safe country, ranked 17 out of 162 on Safe Around’s Country Safety Index. That being said, Barcelona, is one of the largest, most populated cities in Spain which means higher petty crime like theft and pickpocketing. So, while the camp itself is safe, we don’t recommend participants to leave campus and explore the city by themselves. For more information about safety and security at the academy, please contact Ertheo.
