The SD Eibar Summer Camp will take place from 27 June to 9 July

To practice sport, learn languages and foster values are the main goals

The SD Eibar Summer Camp, whose third edition was presented today in Ipurua, will take place from the 27 June to 9 July in two groups, each group lasting from Monday to Saturday, with the practice of sport, language learning and the fostering of values being the main goals.

During the presentation, which counted on the presence of the first-team players Keko Gontán and Ander Capa, Itziar Cenoz, the Director of Marketing of IK4 Tekniker, the company sponsoring the Camp and Gema Baqué, the Club’s Director of Marketing, it was explained that Basque will be the vehicular language and there will be technical training sessions in English with native English teachers, as well as “trips and a lot of fun”.

One of the novelties of this summer’s edition will be the organisation of four bus routes from Durango, Azpeitia, Arrasate and Ondarroa, with pick-ups in different municipalities, to promote the attendance of children from the towns and villages near to Eibar.

The price will be 285 euros for one week and 470 for both weeks, with discounts of 10 percent for season-ticket holders, shareholders, gunsmiths fans and those who enrolled in previous editions.

Those interested can register until 17 June on the internet and at the club’s offices and there will be an informative session for parents on 22 June.  The two Saturdays will be open-days for parents.

Itziar Cenoz recalled that the relationship between IK4 Tekniker and SD Eibar “goes back many years” and is based on “fostering and highlighting the values of sport: commitment, teamwork and endeavour”.

“These values, ones that we at IK4 Tekniker endorse and promote, are perfectly reflected in the Eibar team. These little one who come to the Camp are the future; they are the ones who are going to lead our institutions and companies and I believe it is an incredible opportunity when we can give them the chance to take part in an open and collaborative way and that they can play football, learn these values and have a good time”.

For his part, Jon Arregi, Manager of SD Eibar Foundation, highlighted that this Camp “allows us to collaborate in the formation of young people who also play football and speak different languages”.  “We want to be a spearhead for sports in our region and offer alternatives for the youngsters during summer”.

“Since the Christmas Camp we have a special commitment with the Institutions and we have joined the Eman Hegoak Euskarari (give wings to Basque) campaign of the Vice-Ministry and this implies that the Basque language has, together with English, great importance in the Camp and there is a commitment to the promotion of the language”.

This Camp falls within “the training programme that has developed since we started the Training Centre at Ipurua with a postgraduate degree from the Universidad Pública del País Vasco (Basque Country Public University) and with the sports courses for Federation coaches”.
