My Camp – Quinta da Broeira is the culmination of a dream that began in 1992
To explain a little more about our history, we leave you with our general manager...
I'll begin by introducing myself. I am Ana Catarina Carvalho e Silva. I had my first contact with Summer Camps in England where I did part of my studies.
After attending St.Julians's School in Portugal and finishing the equivalent of our first cycle (6th Grade), I went to England to finish my studies at NEW HALL SCHOOL, CONVENT OF THE HOLY SEPULCHER in CHELMSFORD, ESSEX. A few years later, in 1992, I initiated this activity putting into practice the knowledge I acquired in England.
My first camp was at my parent's Farm at Quinta das Malhadas. Being one of the first summer camps in Portugal. Quinta das Malhadas is a centennial quinta, belonging to the 3rd generation of the Carvalho & Silva Family, with an area of 400 hectares and at only 45 minutes away from Lisbon.
Following the success of the 1st year, one of the houses of the quinta became available just for this purpose, and became known as Quinta das Malhadas Summer Camp. Consequently, it was possible to put into practice the dynamics, safety and efficiency of the fields making them an ideal and safe place for these activities.
Over the years and due to the need for more space, we acquired, in 2001, Quinta da Broeira, which is 10 minutes away from Quinta das Malhadas. At Quinta da Broeira all was renovated from scratch, becoming an extension of the dream that was carried out to what is now My Camp.
With ten hectares of property and several projects on hold, Quinta da Broeira is today a place of great pride and very competitive in the market. For all we have accomplished to this date, I must praise and thank the collaboration of my work team, whom I highlight:
The trainers: Henrique Santos and João Bexiga.
Emília, responsible for the kitchen quarters and her team.
Eduardo, my son, responsible for all activities and his team.
Sara, responsible for the pedagogical farm.
Bruna and Laurinda responsible for the administrative services and their team.
Manuel and Fernando for all outdoor and indoor jobs.
