Our well established private Acorn Adventure Camp, bordered by trees and hedges, offers a relaxed and safe environment for school groups. Our Normandy Centre is exclusive to Acorn and is not shared with members of the public, which we know is very important to schools. Open since 1984, it's been a popular destination for decades.
We are ideally located just 600m from the beach at the edge of the picturesque quiet seaside town of Hauteville-sur-Mer, between Coutances and Granville on the west coast of Normandy. The port is just 90 minutes away making this centre easily accessible from the UK. Many of the popular visits are within easy reach.
Our Normandy Adventure camp accommodates just two schools at a time (or one large group), with each school of 35 or more having their own private pre-erected tented villages. Each school village is laid out in a horseshoe shape, with a central marquee for dining and socialising. Schools love that they get their own private areas to sleep, dine and play and that the site is so relaxed. Both villages accommodate up to 60 people. Close to both villages is a toilet and shower block, with a separate area for teachers. There is a playing field next to the camp, offering further space for games and evenings are often spent enjoying beach games with our friendly team.
Whilst this is camping, it is comfortable camping, with tents all being of standing height with proper beds and hard flooring. Student tents sleep up to four. Party Leader tents sleep two and come with a few extra comforts such as a wardrobe, 2 timber beds with comfortable mattresses, a fridge (in main PL tent), electricity and lighting.
There is onsite tuck shop and duty tent, with Acorn staff available throughout the night. Just a short walk away, there is an ice cream/souvenir shop/café and a weekly market takes place in the town, which is always popular.
