School holidays are coming up and your job doesn’t allow you to take time off. Why not allow your child to escape during the holidays via a summer camp. Located close to the family home, it offers a more economical stay, transportation is short, and your child can escape and discover new sports while learning to become independent and self-sufficient. Here are a few ideas of summer camps to discover…

Different types of stays are offered within the framework of the summer camps.

Stays at the farm

First, there is the unmissable stay at the farm where children can discover horse riding and learn how to ride a pony. This can also allow children who are passionate about horse riding to satisfy their passion during this stay if you don’t have the possibility to pay them weekly lessons which are often very expensive. In some colonies you can even take the federal exams in horse riding. The children will have to take care of their horse but also of other farm animals such as sheep, rabbits etc… This week in the wilderness will give them beautiful memories to tell their classmates.

Count on a budget of about 500 euros for this type of stay for 7 days and 6 nights.

Nautical stay

With the first heat of spring, you can opt for a nautical stay at the Hyères holiday camp in France. This rather skilful holiday camp is aimed at teenagers between 11 and 13 years old and offers an introduction to catamarans, windsurfing and stand up paddle while enjoying the beauty of the scenery and the clear water and fine sandy beach. Culture is also part of this stay as a visit to the region and the island of Porquerolles is also scheduled.

For this stay, plan a budget of 450 euros for 7 days and 6 nights.

100% sport stay

Located 60km from Bordeaux, this summer camp is for young people who love sporting challenges. On the program: archery, blowpipe, canoeing, climbing, adventure course, mountain biking or orienteering. A holiday aimed at young people aged 11 to 13 years old with a great need to let off steam.

Count on a budget of 390euros for 7 days and 6 nights.

Language holidays abroad

For teenagers between 13 and 17 years old and with a larger budget than other summer camps (from 700 to 1000 euros) you can have your children travel to a summer camp abroad. Here are 2 ideas for your stay:

Your child can learn English while discovering the island of Malta. The stay offers 2h30 of English learning per day and cultural outings to discover the cities of Mdina and Valletta and visit the wild island of Comino. Sports activities are also planned as well as relaxing moments at the beach. All the ingredients are there for an unforgettable stay.

Another summer camp proposes to combine the discovery of the city of Barcelona with the learning of Spanish. Learning Spanish will help you get around and learn about the city’s most important landmarks such as the Sagrada Familia Cathedral and Gaudi’s Güell Park. An entertaining way to learn a language and discover a country.
