(MEG/Barcelona) – A nature centre a mere 15 km outside Barcelona and a converted shelter in the Catalan Pyrenees have been opened earlier this month by Minyons Escoltes i Guies de Catalunya (MEG, one of the member associations of FCEG, the Federació Catalana d’Escoltisme i Guiatge). Both centres are ready to start into their first summer season and look forward to welcoming Scouts and Guides from across Europe and beyond.
“Can Palós Nature Centre and Mas Olivet Shelter are the first two Centres of the new Catalan Scout Centres Network”, explains Trini Molist, president of Minyons Escoltes i Guies de Catalunya (MEG), “The facilities themselves as well as the organisational concept have been set up in accordance with the values of Scouting and Guiding, such as commitment, volunteering, participation and teamwork.”
“Both Centres are managed by MEG and the Fundació Josep Sans”, adds Trini Molist, “and provide Scout an Guide groups, other associations and interested individuals with the necessary framework for trainings, camps or outdoor programmes, including community service and environmental education projects, and all this in the context of the world wide Scout Movement.”
“While staying at one of the (currently two) Catalan Scout Centres, the Group will be self-organized and responsible for supplies, cooking, cleaning, and good house keeping. The available facilities meet specific conditions, such as being environmentally friendly.“
Can Palós Nature Centre (in Sant Boi de Llobregat).
The refurbished typical Catalan farmhouse is situated some 15 km outside Barcelona in the city’s metropolitan area and next to the Llobregat Delta Nature Reserve. Woodland and vineyards surround the Centre and wait to be explored by Scouts. The Green Belt, a route for pedestrians and cyclists connecting cultural and scenic places in the area passes nearby. The Centre has accommodation for 36 people and it is accessible by public transport, with easy connections to the international airport in Barcelona-El Prat (BCN). Further information is available on the Internet (in Catalan).
Mas Olivet Shelter (in Maçanet de Cabrenys)
This Centre is a converted old typical Pyrenean farmhouse, enjoys a breathtaking view and is surrounded by rich and variable vegetation. The region offers many opportunities for excursions and outdoor activities, including hiking tours on sections of the European Long-Distance Hike GR 11, the Santiago de Compostela Hilke or the Boadella Hike. The Centre can accommodate 34 people and is accessible by public transport. The nearest international airport is Girona Airport (GRO).
