Your summer home is the Residencia Sarrià, one of Barcelona’s most sought-after student residences, located in a safe, elegant and sophisticated area near the city center. Housing is in double rooms that enjoy air conditioning and private bathrooms, Internet access, games room, private cinema, rooftop swimming pool and access to the next door Can Carralleu sports club where players can workout, swim or simply relax at the café. The camp is overseen by senior directors and supervised by experienced residential advisors (RAs) that live on the hall. Directors and RAs have both coaching and residential life experience and also attend training sessions. Players have access to common areas where they can settle down with friends and relax. Breakfast and dinner are served at the residence, and lunch is offered at FC Barcelona.
The City of Barcelona
Summerfuel staff is on hand to make sure you take advantage of your summer in Barcelona. Barcelona’s history enriches its vibrant modern cultural life and reputation for being cosmopolitan and cutting edge. The city lays claim to many important museums and galleries, whose Modernist architecture championed by Antoni Gaudí contrasts with the ultra-modern Olympic port and pristine beaches of the stunning Mediterranean coast. From the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter to the modern shops and cafes of Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona possesses a unique energy and style that make it one of the top destinations in all of Europe and we organize trips and visits throughout the 2 weeks.
Trips and Excursions
Saturdays and Sundays will be assigned for regeneration, recovery time, and cultural excursions in Barcelona and beyond. Participants enjoy 2 full-day excursions, Port Aventura Theme Park and Sitges, and enjoy visits to Parc Guell, La Pedrera, Sagrada Familia Cathedral, Picasso and Miró Museums, beaches, as well as a guided tour of the Gothic Quarter.
