Improve your soccer skills

Our Youth Football Camp in Spain is a combination of morning football training, early afternoon English or Spanish language lessons and evening cultural activities with the main objective of making our participants become better football players, gain fluency in Spanish or English while they also discover Valencia, enjoying a cultural immersion experience into the Spanish culture.

Day Trips to beautiful locations in the Valencian Region
AIP Language Institute
20 years offering the best language learning experience
Since 1998, thousands of participants have been enjoying our language courses. Every year, we receive more than 2500 participants from all around the world.
Our objective is very clear: support students in their learning of a foreign language (English or Spanish) and offer an unforgettable cultural immersion experience in an Accredited Centre by Instituto Cervantes and official Cambridge English Preparation Centre.
Our school's value proposition
- Monday to Friday
- from 2pm to 5pm
- 15 hours per week
- a combination of grammar work
and speaking practice
- all levels
- communicative approach
We count on a great team of professionals to carry out the language lessons. They follow a communicative approach and are highly dynamic. The students are split into different groups, according to their level of knowledge of Spanish or English. This is so our experienced native and bilingual teachers can properly work in the classroom and guarantee the correct evolution of each student by means of putting students in small groups, having regular tests and offering indivitual support and monitoring.
- Monday to Friday: afternoon/evening activities
- weekends: day trips
- a combination of cultural, leisure
and sport activities
- the best way to discover the city and the region
We prepare a different activities program for each week of our soccer summer camp to make sure that all boys and girls discover every corner of the beautiful city of Valencia.
On weekdays, after the Spanish or English lessons, we visit important tourist attractions like Bioparc, The City of Arts and Sciences (which includes the Oceanogràfic, L’Hemisféric and the Science Museum among others), the Cathedral, the ‘Miguelete’ tower and, of course, the beach!
At the weekends, it is the perfect time to enjoy full-day trips to explore the Valencian region.
A perfect summer destination
Valencia is the 3rd largest city in Spain
Sandy beaches, scrumptious food, safe streets, modern architecture and lots of history. It is a cosmopolitan, open city with a population of about one million – not too big, not too small. Just the perfect size to make Valencia a home away from home.
A typical Mediterranean city to have a once-in-a-lifetime summer, learning Spanish or English and practising your favourite sport.
Family or residence
Two different options, two different ways to live this soccer camp.
Local host family or residence hall? Both are winning options, but they are different and special in their own way.
Galileo Galilei is a mixed-sex residence and it can accommodate more than 500 students. It was opened in 1998 and it is located at Universitat Politècnica de València and less than one kilometer away from the beach.
Our participants are accompanied by our monitors at all times, who are responsible for ensuring that the residence hall norms are followed and that everyone has a harmonious and pleasant experience.
Special diets can be booked in advance and students can repeat dish at their entire convenience.
Choosing the residence hall also means spending a lot more time with the rest of participants of the summer soccer camp, resulting in more shared experiences and a stronger bond among all players.
local host family
Staying with a local family provides a unique scenario for direct contact with the Spanish culture and its customs, This accommodation option will also maximize the time of exposure to Spanish, creating lots of opportunities for students to practise what they learn.
All of our long-term collaborating families have been carefully selected to make sure that the students feel welcome and comfortable with them.
When choosing this option, students have to go to school, and then back home on their own. A member of the host family will show them the way on the very first day.
Staying with a local host family is only available for students who are 16 years old or over.
