How to Book Summer Campuses

To book the campus you can contact us by phone on +339 16 76 863, also via WhatsApp, or by e-mail: parcgenoni@gmail.com.
This is followed by the submission of application forms and the necessary documents to complete the process.

The reservation is deemed completed when confirmation is sent from the campus organizers. In case of an excessive number of requests, the group is created based on the order of arrival of complete requests accompanied by all required documents.
Usually operators on the phone will update you on the number of enrollments for each campus, and together, parents and campus organization, look for the best date and group for the child.

A list of essential things to bring and those not recommended is sent along with the registration forms.
In addition, any allergies or precautions to be followed for each child are requested.

Several photos are taken during the camp both in groups and individually. The pictures recount the children’s experience and the main moments of the activity and most importantly: the awarding of the Little Paleontologist or Archaeologist diploma. For this purpose, a release for images is requested. Images are sent to all enrollees at the end of the course in separate folders. In case you prefer not to sign the release, children’s faces are obscured in group photos.

Maximum availability and professionalism is guaranteed to create the best experience for your children.
