How nice is to travel with kids? And  how many times it happens to think it’s a way too much to tour when the Italian weather heats. 

Did you ever think how could it be nice to let your son meet new local friends and learn a new language?

An answer to all this questions is to enroll your child in a summer camp, even only for a single day.

We have several options for Summer camps in Tuscany and Umbria.

1) La Scatola Magica, the Magic Box in English is a very good association of mothers who are organizing great kids activities each summer. Location: Chiusi, Siena, Tuscany. 

They also organize weekly visit to several sports associations like basket, soccer, and swimming lessons. Also they invite artists, scientists to daily kids labs.

You can find them also in winter for a nice baby parking and sometimes they organize pizza party for kids up to 11.00 PM so that you can enjoy a romantic dinner out!

Stella does it at least for 2 weeks each summer. Also this camp is from Monday to Friday.  More info at:

2) The fish camp in Paciano, they have a teacher that speaks English.

My daughter Stella goes every year at least for a week. The camp is only in the morning and without lunch.

2 ) The San Giobbe basket Camp in Chiusi, organized by the Chiusi bulls. They are  on “Serie A2 Old Wild West” (Umana Chiusi). 

Also this is a very good summer camp in Tuscany. Stella did it this year for the first time and we are already booking for the next year and for the weekly classes all this winter!
