International Learning Animals Camp Summer 2019

We are getting ready and preparing in what is already going to be the 4th Learning Animals International Camp Experience.

The four last days of June, from Thursday the 27th until Sunday the 30th, Dutch-Italian-German and possibly others will blend in the Learning Animals dimension and will create again another heroic experience within a socio-cognitive context. The inspiration for this edition comes from 'Le Terre Rosse' - The Red Earth - where more than 30 years ago, Francesco walked his trail adventures together with the Tolfetan horse Morello and other horses.

The Autumn Camp will be planned from the 3rd of October until the 6th, where the Learning Animals location and surroundings will be the main setting of the program. 

The Camp Experience will be open for Learning Animals Network participants, as it will bring an indepth practice experience and a theory and practical understanding of the concept of Animality, based on the Learning Animals socio-cognitive model. This full-immersion therefor requires a continuity in practice and awareness in daily life, facilitated by the Network updates.

A unique possibility to share, in an international dimension, the values of Learning Animals in an intens and rich experience, moving on towards a new coexistence.


The camp will start at Thursday-afternoon, June the 27th and finish on Sunday-morning the 30th. The camp-activities will mostly take place within the Mountains near the Ligurian sea, a Medditterranian setting with olive trees and red rocks and earth, hence the name.

Opening will take place at Learning Animals, on Friday there will be a further development of movement, perception and vertical 'quadruppedia'. The middle-earth near the sea will be part of the Camp scenario again, and after two days of intense experiences, participants come back to Learning Animals for an 'Animality adventure'.

To make sure summer-temperatures will not interfere with your adventure mood, we decided to organise the partecipants in individual tents at Camping San Martino, where plenty of shade and a swimming pool will offer any necessay refreshment.
