Perkain – Pilota Camp in Aldude

PerkainThe Perkain Association is once again holding a pilota camp at the Erreka Gorri center in Aldude, France for children between the ages of 8-16 years of age. This year's dates are July 5-11th for the 13-16 year-olds; July 12-18th for ages 10-12, and July 19-25th for 8-10 year -olds. The goal of the camp is to improve skills in various modalities of pilota including eskuz, xare, joko garbi and pala for boys and pala and frontennis for girls, but also allows time for fun activities like rafting, swimming and hiking in the surrounding area. Cost of the camp is 335 Euros for 7 days, and the deadline to register is May 15th. Last year several NABO children attended camp and had nothing but great things to say about it.
