Campers sleep in large all-weather tents with spring beds, mattresses, table, chairs and ground cover. This is comfortable roughing-it. Each camper is assigned to a tent according to age and gender and an experienced counsellor is responsible for taking special care of campers in each tent. A central building houses the classrooms and dining room as well as modern toilets and shower facilities.


The exciting Ardèche River borders our site with mountain bike trails, hiking trails and rock climbing right on our doorstep. Not far away, in Vallon, there are historic caves to be explored, cafes and a night market with traditional local shopping for off-campus visits as and when time permits on this busy camp programme.

Camp Organisation

A fully-supervised activity programme is organised for each age group. The varied schedule includes several periods where all campers have their choice from a selection of activities available.

Campers in both the French Language Camp and the Adventure Camp will receive comprehensive instruction in canoeing in preparation for the highlight of the camps – the two-day, 30 km descent of the Ardèche River in Canadian canoes including bivouacking for one night at a pre-arranged site under the stars.


Healthy, varied food in unlimited quantities is prepared by the VC chef, who also caters for most diets.
