Last few weeks available on our 2019 French Activity Trips

France Trips

Our France activity trips offer a unique adventure experience based at one of three lakeside centres in southwest France. The area is characterised by sandy beaches backed by pine forests, with rolling vineyard-covered hills to the north between Bordeaux and Bergerac, to the mountainous Pyrenees in the south.

All three of our centres are on the shores of freshwater lakes fringed by pine forests and sandy beaches and all just a few miles from the spectacular Atlantic coast. They all offer quality facilities and entertainment that you would expect from a Rockley Adventure site.

Action-Packed Adventure and Fun

A Rockley Adventure France Trips benefits from sunny weather (mostly!), beautiful surroundings and plenty of fresh air, to which we add our fantastic multi activity or specialist sailing activity programmes. Our centre teams have the equipment, experience and passion to deliver a programme that is packed with variety, adventure and rewarding activities. Whether that be learning to windsurf, rallying down forest trails on mountain bikes or white water rafting, our activity programmes deliver on key skills and social, physical and emotional development - we have something for every child to achieve and enjoy learning in our very own "Rockley Classroom".

A Residential Adventure

Residential activity trips provide an opportunity to gain experience of living away from home and the chance to develop key personal qualities such as self-reliance and increased independence.

A trip with Rockley means getting the most out of outdoor living, with ‘alfresco’ meals, plenty of fresh air, space and freedom to relax. Pupils are grouped in their accommodation according to their age and sex. Staff, pupils, and accompanying adults all eat together in our communal area, which provides an ideal opportunity to socialise.

Our three lakeside centres in southwest France are uniquely arranged where we have our own area for our tent villages. The chalet-style tents, which sleep, on average, 6 children, each have electric lights, metal frame beds, mattresses, curtains and for added safety, a personal alarm. As Group Leader, your tent will also have a cooker, fridge, cooking utensils and some refreshments to welcome you on arrival.

Inspiring Healthier Lives

Healthy eating contributes significantly to the lives of children and young people. At Rockley, we ensure your pupils receive three healthy, balanced meals a day.

All our food is prepared on-site by our own catering staff. Ingredients are fresh and locally sourced giving each child the opportunity to taste a range of nutritional food as well as some local specialities! All our guests get provided with their essential five-a-day. At Rockley Adventure the only food choice is a healthy choice.

Our alfresco dining area makes a positive contribution to the dining experience. The meal times are an important social aspect of the trip. At Rockley Adventure we ensure there is adequate time available to eat their meal and chat about the activities and learning that the children have experienced in the day.

Every Student (Really) Matters

Our French residential activity trips provide an opportunity for your pupils to gain experience staying away from home whilst developing personal skills through a variety of fun activities. We believe that every child (really) matters and our France activity trips help empower children to develop key skills and personal confidence in a fun and safe environment.

All our programmes can be tailored to specifically meet the requirements of your group. We often work with Group Leaders to put together a more bespoke programme to fulfil specfic aims and objectives. If you have any questions about our activity programmes just give us a call.
