Finca el Mazo Adventure Camp
Welcome to Finca el Mazo Adventure Camp, a leisure, sports and adventure centre with more than 20 years of experience providing adventure and entertainment for children all ages.
We are based in Las Marismas de Santoña National Park, on the Rada River estuary, just 30 minutes from Santander. This is the largest wetland in Northern Spain and, due to the birds that live there, is an official Ramshar special protection zone and EU-recognized site of interest. Rada is one of the best natural settings to do outdoor as it is surrounded by oak trees, holm oak trees, holly trees and spectacular mountain terrain. There are also many animals that live here, with water-birds being the most popular kind.
At Finca El Mazo, our objective is to offer a variety of high quality summer camps, where girls and boys can come and enhance their English, doing a wide range of different sports and interacting with children of different backgrounds. And all the while within a spectacular natural environment where they will learn about Cantabria’s ecology, landscape and rich cultural history.
