Multi Sport Activities + Language Courses

C.S.I. Camps in Italy

CSI Camps in Italy

When Ferruccio Cornacchia organised his first summer camps in the early 80s things were different, and he surely couldn’t imagine that his grandchildren would be still working on those events 40 years later. 

The mission of those multi sport activities was to “keep busy” difficult local kids, often without money and family, that would have otherwise spent their summer on the streets.

Now the camps are dedicated to teenagers aged 12-18 from all over the world, that for 1 or 2 weeks have the chance to enjoy a unique experience that many participants compared to Harry Potter: groups are divided in 4 teams that compete in daily sport activities and language courses, getting points everyday until the amazing treasure hunting of the last day. 

A magic week developed to strength the values of friendship, inclusion and fair play, and that will stay in the participants’ hearts forever.

Before his premature departure Ferruccio managed the sport department of the Catholic Church in Pordenone CSI (Centro Sportivo Italiano) and created Polisportiva San Giorgio, the sport Club that organises Cornacchia World Cup in addition to these camps.

Today, his son Tiziano and his grandchildren Stefano and Matteo keep on working on these events with the same love and passion, through the same two Associations.

What should I expect

Participants are divided in 4 teams that during the week compete in sport activities to get points, that are awarded also during the language classes.

Teams are multicultural and mixed with Italian and foreign teenagers age 12-18, that play and compete together, creating from the beginning a vibrant atmosphere of cooperation and friendship.

It’s possible to book the package for 1 week, or for 2 weeks changing location.

Sport activities are under the supervision of adults certified by Centro Sportivo Italiano. These activities are lead in the afternoon, while language classes for foreigners are in the morning.

Every team has leaders and animators that help and support the participants during the daily activities, giving absolute priority to safety and inclusion.

Phones are allowed to be used just 1 hour in evening, because participants must enjoy this experience focusing on the values of diversity and friendship with curiosity, to learn something about others and possibly even about themselves.
