The facilities are equipped with nine top quality football pitches where students train under the guidance of FC Barcelona’s official coaching team. During their stay, the children will learn how to play football in the style of Barcelona’s youth academy.
In addition to the football training, participants will attend classroom sessions where the theory of football is explored in further detail along with other important topics such as sports psychology and nutrition.
The FCB Escola in Barcelona also arranges a range of entertainment activities to allow the students to have some fun, get to know each other better and get the best out of their stay at the academy. Activities may include a tour of the Camp Nou stadium and club museum as well as trips to other symbolic places in this fascinating city.
During their stay, participants are accommodated at the Sarria Residence, a modern facility equipped with all the amenities that young people could want. As well as comfortable rooms, the students are provided with breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, and also have access to its other facilities. Each night, a program of leisure and entertainment activities are also hosted at the residence.
Hundreds of young people take part in the summer camp each year. However, we also offer high performance training programs in Barcelona throughout the rest of the year.
The participants are accommodated at the same location as the sports complex, providing extra security for the students and reassurance for their parents.
The camp attracts young people from all over the world who live together in shared rooms of 4-6 students per room. As a result, the young people at the camp enjoy a rich cultural experience, growing and developing as individuals not just as footballers.
