THE Mayor of Estepona, Jose Maria Garcia Urbano, joined former national football coach Vicente del Bosque to present the sixth annual Summer Campus on Tuesday.
The popular training camp will take place at the Santo Tomas de Aquino sports centre and the Parque de Los Pedregales in the town from June 24 to July 29.
Mr Garcia Urbano said that the initiative has become “a tourist attraction phenomenon” and that it goes “beyond the practice of sports and entertainment by fostering among young people important values like friendship, integration and teamwork.”
He also emphasised the cosmopolitan nature of Estepona with its total of 108 nationalities and 30 per cent make up of foreign residents.
In addition to its sports programme, the Summer Campus aims to instill in children aged between 6 and 15 a commitment to a healthy lifestyle based on good nutrition and fitness.
The children will also get to enjoy trips to the beach, a water park, volleyball and hiking.
