Get to know Cintra Tribus

The mission of Cintra Tribus is to inspire people to live in harmony with nature through play and free exploration. Knowing it, respecting it and contemplating it, recognizing it as essential for life.

Our goal is to be the preferred space for play and autonomous exploration, for children, families, schools and all people who want to get involved in this direct contact with nature. Going back to the origins, playing without previously elaborated structures, fostering each one's creative space.

In addition to assuming itself as a School, the Cintra Tribus organizes regular meetings from Monday to Friday, Saturdays, birthday parties, activities for schools and weeks of school interruption, such as Christmas, Carnival, Easter, summer holidays...
We are an open community growing and welcoming anyone who wants to join, we recognize the need to rethink the relationship of playing in contact with nature, the urgency of the outside.

We are waiting for you, for an encounter with Nature!

  • Beatriz Silva

  • Madalena Soares

    Madalena never had any doubts that CintraTribus was the ideal place to provide young people with experiences and learning that she considers essential for life. In addition, the whole side of adventure and overcoming obstacles that the pine forest presents reminds her of the different challenges she conquered in gymnastics, a sport she practiced for 15 years. With a degree in Basic Education, she believes that this project complements her as a future teacher, as it is here that play is seen as the greatest strength of being a child.

  • Mafalda Moreira

    Coming from a family with so many cousins and so connected to education, the interaction that Mafalda has with the children was no surprise to anyone. Since she was a little girl, she is used to being in nature, she wants to play, she wants to do sports, the forest being one of her great passions. Thus, Cintra Tribus proved to be the ideal place to meet and provide children with moments as good as those they experienced in nature.

  • Joana

    Joana is super in a good mood, smiling and happy with life!
    He comes from a large family, where cousins and uncles are more than many. Maybe that's why children were her first passion and the kindergarten teacher course was a statement. When he plays with clay or touches the earth, he finds his nature.
    After 20 years in a "traditional" school, it was a Forest School course that made Joana change the cement walls for a school where trees are the classroom.
    He firmly believes that hugs and contact with nature are fundamental ingredients for a child to grow up happy and he found the ideal place at Cintra Tribus.

  • Pedro

    Pedro was born in Beja and is from Odivelas-Alentejo.
    It is from there that he brings his accent and musical aptitude. How good it is when you pick up the guitar and enchant with your Alentejo singing, so sweet!
    He enjoys sports, photography and handicrafts and it is to him that we owe the extraordinary construction, decoration and storage ideas here at Tribo.
    He started working in the education field in 2019 and it has been a pleasure to have him on the team!
