The Swiss Alpine Centre is Village Camps owned and provides comfortable accommodation, a friendly welcome from our counsellors and generous meals much praised by the campers. There are breathtaking views over the Rhone Valley to the spectacular peaks of the French Alps with Mt Blanc in the distance.
The quite amazing location for our riverside adventure programme is the Village Camps’ managed purpose-built camp on the banks of the dramatic Ardèche River in the forests of the sun-drenched South of France. Campers sleep in large all-weather tents with spring beds, mattresses, table, chairs and ground cover. With modern toilet and shower facilities this is comfortable 'roughing-it'!
Queen Ethelburga’s College continues to develop its exceptional accommodation and facilities each year and is now arguably the best equipped residential College in the UK. In this time campers have enjoyed state-of-the-art accommodation and an impressive range of outdoor and indoor sports and leisure facilities. In 2018 campers will be accommodated together in newly re-furbished and upgraded, quite luxurious 4-5 bedded apartments.
The traditional-style Chalet Notburgahof is well positioned in the pretty village of Piesendorf in the spectacular mountain and lakeside scenery of the Austrian Alps. The well-proportioned bedrooms are for 2-5 campers, all with en-suite facilities. The Chalet has its very own gymnasium, all-weather tennis courts, an outdoor challenge course and great food.
On the West Coast of Portugal, just an hour from the capital, Lisbon, our great Portuguese location, Santa Cruz, lies on the dramatic coastline of the Costa de Prata – the ‘Silver Coast’. The majestic cliffs and beautiful beaches make this sun-drenched coastline what many consider to be Europe’s premiere surfing destination. Santa Cruz and its beaches are also a great base for the varied activities on our adventure programme.
