Actividad deportiva en el Sportsclub de camping internacional de calonge.

The Camping Internacional de Calonge has got sports in its blood from long ago.

Both the family who is currently running the campsite and its workers are deeply involved in sport issues. The team is made up of former professional tennis players, triathletes and sport lovers. Many awards and broad curriculum on wide range of sports can be found.

Last years, the Camping Internacional de Calonge has been deeply involved in the world of sports, being the Official Accommodation of diverse sports events.

This passion is reflected in the numerous sports activities that are organised both in and outside of the campsite.

History

El Camping Internacional de Calonge ve la luz en los años 60, década del denominado “Boom turístico”. Antes de este fenómeno social, la Costa Brava era un paraje poco poblado debido al miedo de las incursiones piratas y por el bajo rendimiento agrícola. Pero gracias a las nuevas clases medias europeas, empezó a promocionarse el turismo de sol y playa a precios muy asequibles.

That was the period when founders of the campsite, Esteve Roca, Joaquim Sindreu, Javier Zulueta y Josep Banús -father of the current manager-, decided to go one step forward and create  a small paradise surrounded by green and blue.
