Safety

The Real Madrid Foundation has been organizing the Real Madrid Foundation Campus Experience Summer Camps since 2010. Since then, they have grown to become some of the most popular youth sports camps in the world with around 3,500 participants every summer. The Real Madrid Foundation Campus Experience recognizes the importance of sufficient supervision to keep track of a large number of participants, which is why campers are supervised by camp monitors at all times. That being said, since there are so many participants at the camp, students are supervised in rather large groups and don’t receive the personalized staff attention they might receive at other smaller camps.
