The third edition of the Kirol Kanpusak Euskaraz will take place in the Basque Country in December. The activities are split in two sessions in December. The first takes place December 22 and 23, the second on December 29 and 30. Up to 50 children per camp will be attending.

The presentation of the event was held on the premises of the Fundación Ciclista Euskadi headquarters. Miguel Madariaga, the foundation's president, and Joxean Rodríguez, who heads the Política Lingüística department, hosted a press conference to explain the objective of the camps.

The children are aged eight through 12 and will participate in a variety of activities, including bike maintenance and mechanics, plus some riding, of course. Riders from the professional team will assist with the event, which is held in the Basque language.
