Accommodation

Location

Our pretty Adventure Camp, which is exclusive to Acorn Adventure, is set on the outskirts of the quiet medieval town of Ardres, which is in the Opal Coast region known for its green coastline stretching 26 miles between Calais and Boulogne-sur-Mer. 

Just 25 minutes from Calais, this is a really accessible destination for schools and groups looking for the french experience, but not too far away from home.


Accommodation & facilities

Our small and friendly camp consists of just two tented villages, sleeping up to 48 in each village and can accommodate two groups, or one large group. If you are bringing a group of 35 paying or more, you will have your own exclusive village to make your own. This is particularly popular with schools who are used to sharing large centres and dining facilities with other operators. Having your own space improves group interaction and makes the trip really easy to manage.
