Village Life

Popular for over 35 years, our Camping Villages, set up in a horseshoe shape, create a real sense of community and add so much to the group experience. Each of our traditional camping villages combines comfort with the joy of camping, consisting of 16-21 fire retardant PVC tents each with four beds, sprung mattresses and a solid floor (sleeping up to 60 people). Party Leader tents now include tiled flooring, two solid timber beds, a fridge (overseas), an electric point, lighting and a wardrobe.

Each Village has its own marquee, lit 24hrs a day for dining and socialising and where drinks and fruit are always available. Around the clock, our highly experienced and qualified staff are never far away and you’ll also have your own Village Manager to support you as required.

Groups are guaranteed exclusive use of a village (based on a min. 35 paying people) and so you can make the space your own, perfect for group interaction and creating a community spirit. We also ask groups to have some involvement with the camp chores for the life skills this generates, teaching them to keep our living space clean and litter free. And of course it wouldn’t be camping without songs around the campfire!

Our tented villages are available at the following centres:
Opal Coast Adventure, Northern France
Ardeche Adventure, South of France
Brecon Beacons Adventure, Wales

Camping Pods


Camping pods are available at our private Brecon Beacons centre, nestled in at the lakeside for the ultimate camping experience. Pupil pods sleep up to five and have proper beds, lighting and heating.

Teacher pods sleep to three and have proper beds, lighting, electricity, dining table and a toilet / basic, kitchenette and TV.


Our tipi village in the Wyre Forest, West Midlands is an exciting addition.

Groups of 30 or more will have exclusive use of the whole camp, with 5 giant pupil tipis (sleeping 10 per tipi), 2 teacher tipis with real beds (and a few extra luxuries) and a giant shelter with a central fire pit. The village is equipped with running water and electricity and has direct access to a separate toilet and shower block. There is a night toilet next to the tipis for convenience and safety at night.


For those who prefer bricks to canvas, the Dordogne Adventure offers schools exclusive use of dorms in a private Acorn block. Teachers have private rooms and bathroom facilities. Our Mediterranean Adventure offers en-suite cabin accommodation, with bunk beds and our Cala Canyelles centre offers dorms or giant tented dorms.
New for 2020, our Maltese Adventure offers groups exclusivity of a Guest House, located close to the bustling town of St Julians. Here each room is en-suite, with air con and has a lounge area, kitchen, dining area and a small swimming pool.

  • Meals are produced using fresh ingredients and minimal salt
  • All dietary and allergen requirements can be catered for
  • Fresh fruit is always available
  • Happy to provide birthday cakes!
