We have a choice of ten exciting Adventure destinations in six countries and have built up an excellent reputation for delivering safe, quality and fun adventure trips that are excellent value for money.
We are passionate about the great outdoors and our activities, camp locations and accommodation options have all been carefully planned to offer you the best possible real outdoor experience at affordable prices.
All of our Adventure Camps in France, Italy, Spain, UK and India, have been selected with their locations in mind. From National Parks to the Mediterranean Sea, we are perfectly placed to offer you the best choice of activity programmes. From sailing and paddle boarding to climbing and caving, we have a trip to suit every school and group!
We believe that a true adventure is more than just the activities we offer. It’s about the whole experience. With this in mind, all of our accommodation options are designed to heighten the overall experience; bringing groups together and teaching life skills. From the traditional tented village to rustic log cabins, our Adventure Camps are set up to celebrate the outdoors whether it be sleeping under canvas or toasting marshmallows on the campfire.
Brand new UK adventure 2017
We're excited to announce that we are now taking bookings for our brand new adventure coming soon in 2017, in the Wyre Forest, West Midlands.
This exciting primary school UK woodland adventure is set amongst the trees in a pretty forest, next to the popular West Midlands Safari Park. It offers accommodation for up to 56 people in a brand new tipi village, and each group has exclusive use of the whole site (based on a min group size of 35). We know this is particularly important to younger groups, seeking a secure and private setting.
The action-packed programme here includes a range of woodland based activities from bushcraft to archery, climbing and forest cycling. Your group will also enjoy a fun-filled a day at the West Midlands Safari Park, where there will also be educational based activities put on by the park.
Choose from a 2 night or a 4 night stay. Find out more by visiting our website Tipi Adventure for primary schools

Outdoor education provider Acorn Adventure can confirm that on 23rd July 2016 a coach carrying a school group to one of its outdoor adventure centres in Italy was involved in a serious road traffic accident in France, close to the Swiss border. The thoughts of the whole Acorn team are with those who have been affected by this, especially those who sustained the most serious injuries and their families.
There were 42 students, six school staff and two drivers on board the coach. Ten students and a teacher received minor injuries and they have now been discharged from hospital. Sadly two further pupils received more serious injuries, one of whom remains in intensive care. The parents of these two students are now with their children and the rest of the group are home with their families. Counselling services have been made available to students, parents and staff.
Rob Miller, MD of Acorn Adventure said, “We were deeply saddened to hear of this accident on Saturday and our hearts go out to all those involved. We understand the group of students responded with great maturity, taking good care of each other. However, we are all very concerned about the student who sustained the most serious injuries, they remain in our thoughts.
“We are of course keen to know what may have caused this accident and we are working with the authorities and the coach operator, Express Motors, to understand the details leading up to the accident. I would also like to praise the French emergency services for their swift response, which no doubt would have been a great relief for those involved.”
