Advanced Adventure Camp | France | Ardèche

Something very special from Village Camps for our dedicated young adventurers who have previously enjoyed Adventure Camp in the Ardèche!

Programme suitable for ages

Summer Camp A challenging adventure programme for campers who want to progress their skills – doing what they love best!

Summer Camp Thrilling outdoor activities restricted to campers in the 13-17 age-group – Reds & Blues – with at least one previous experience in the Ardèche Adventure Camp.

Summer Camp Designed especially for campers with confidence who are keen to extend their skills in climbing, swimming and rafting.

Village Camps is one of Europe’s most experienced outdoor adventure operators, organising successful adventure camps since the early 1970s. Today our adventure and activity programmes are more popular than ever. So, to meet the demand from experienced campers who already have the necessary skill base, we have designed our Advanced Adventure camp. New challenges each weekday will enable returning adventure enthusiasts to reach ambitious targets and rapidly develop new skills on this exacting and progressive camp.

Everyone at the Advanced Camp will have already enjoyed an introduction to a Village Camps adventure experience, gaining knowledge and skills in each of our main outdoor activities – Paddle Boarding, Canoeing, Climbing, Canyoning, Via Ferrata and Caving. So this will be a great opportunity to move onward and upwards, really benefiting from the intense, targeted expert instruction from professionals. Our team will ensure rapid improvement from each camper – whatever the starting level – opening up an exciting new world for the future.

And, there’s more! Our thrilling activities take place in different, exotic locations than the basic Adventure programme. Advanced campers will enjoy extra full day excursions, longer activity time, exciting new sites – all adding up to lots of FUN! Our dedicated and knowledgeable Outdoor Specialist Team have planned a programme that offers more overnight trips, extensive climbing and ropes courses and bigger, longer water sports excursions.

Look forward to some of these super highlights!
