Mountain Adventure Camps provides thrills and spills in the heart of the French AlpsWith people escaping to the French Alps each year for their own little piece of paradise, there’s a place high in the Vanoise National Park that offers something a little different.
Mountain Adventure Camps, located in the Courchevel area of Les Trois Vallées at 1400m above sea level, provide the ultimate adventure for everyone. With activities including mountain walking, white-water rafting, summer skiing, nature connection and even French tuition.
“Our location really is unique” says Matthew Baker, Operations Director, Mountain Adventure Camps. He continues, “We provide an awesome package in an idyllic mountain setting, based in purpose-built chalets that boast some of the most stunning views” Children aged between nine and seventeen are able to attend one of the exciting residential summer camps during July and August and for families or adults wanting a little more flexibility, custom adventure holidays are also available.
“Our camp boasts a table tennis/fuse ball room, access to indoor and outdoor swimming pools, ball courts and even a full-time executive Chef; preparing quality meals each and every day” Matthew adds.
The camp’s key offering is its residential summer camps. These week long adventures start each day with a wholesome and healthy breakfast on the picturesque terrace. Camp attendees then enjoy a fun and interactive French language lesson on the banks of one of the many lakes, or at one of the many mountain lookout spots, really making use of the outdoor environment.
Throughout the day, nutritious and well-balanced meals provided by the in house chef ensure there is always plenty of energy to burn. Fun packed afternoons include a big activity, with adventures including white-water rafting, rock climbing, summer skiing, tarzan swings and zip lines.
“Everyone who attends leaves with a big smile, with most returning the following year. It’s a welcomed break from everyday life and we hope to see children grow and flourish as they reconnect with nature and develop some vital life skills and therefore the use of phones, computers and televisions are restricted” Matthew concludes.
