Monaco’s (very affordable) summer of fun


The National Education Information Centre (CIEN) is actively preparing a programme of summer activities for young people in Monaco.

In close collaboration with Monegasque artistic, sports and cultural associations, a varied and enticing Pass’sport programme is open to residents or those schooled in the Principality, between the ages of 13 and 21.

Depending on tastes and schedules, adolescents can choose to participate in one-week courses or “discovery sessions”, ranging from a few hours to one day, for a fixed price of €48/month or €75 for two months.

Nearly forty activities are being offered this summer, from aquatic recreation – rowing, kayaking, snorkelling, sea rescue, jet skiing, water trekking or sailing – to creative activities, such as manga, video and Chinese calligraphy, theatre, singing, musicals, and guitar.

In addition to gliding, caving, climbing, and fencing, combat sports and martial arts will include jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, Muay Thai, krav maga and self-defence.

Throw into the mix a variety of other activities, like shooting, archery, bowling, tennis, badminton, squash, gymba, hip-hop, zumba, not to mention bridge and training in first aid, and surely there’s something for young person.

From the end of May, a full list of required documentation, including the registration form will be available from the National Education Information Centre website.
