The objective of the SIOUX CAMP is to foster personal and social development through sport, a sense of friendship and companionship, developing respect, tolerance, plurality, autonomy, solidarity and responsibility in a framework of activities of all kinds that promote creativity and respect for nature and coexistence.

The Sioux Camp hinges on two main axes that backbone SEK Education Group competencies, social impact and well-being. During the stay we work on the all-round development of our campers, ensuring an impact on the community that surrounds them, seeking the personal and collective well-being of the entire group, through daily group activities, lifelong learning that seeks emotional and physical equilibrium is encouraged, detecting personal emotions and their influence on the group, encouraging positive coexistence.

During the course and through effective communication and shared leadership in sports activities, they solve challenges that allow them to reach their full potential while working on the development of different skills.
