ATC’s Summer Camp is a holiday for 11-16 year olds. We are taking our guests from summit to sea, delivering three weeks of adventure over the mountains, through the rivers and into the seas of France.
There are a breath-taking number of activities on offer, including glacier walking and mountain biking in the Alps, canoeing through the famed Ardeche gorge, canyoning in the Pyrenees and sailing in the Mediterranean. All activities are delivered by highly qualified outdoor instructors.
As well as adventures, we have a staff of qualified teachers leading curriculum catch up classes in the core subjects. We also have two EFL teachers on hand to deliver English lessons to non-native speakers. (EFL & CURRICULUM CATCH UP COME AT AN EXTRA CHARGE.)
The program is designed to build resilience, confidence, integrity and focus, with leadership a core strand running through our programme. While the activities themselves will go a long way to teaching these skills, we also have a Leadership Coach on board.
A full-time team will travel with the group for the full three weeks and each of our guests will be assigned a mentor who will look after any needs during this period.

As Leader of Expeditions at a prestigious International school I chose Phil and his company to accompany 50 students and staff down the Ardeche. We were so pleased with the organisation, the humour and professionalism of the group we decided to make it an annual trip each time with a different group of students. Each time we were very happy and can highly recommend Phil and his organisation.
Our Year 6's (11 year olds) enjoyed the very popular annual adventure / cultural camps led by Phil and his team. I have always had every confidence, not only in Phil's care, enthusiasm and attention to detail but also the training, professionalism and loyalty of his staff who showed a natural empathy with the children.
Over the last twelve years, Phil and his team of instructors have provided a “once-in-a-lifetime” expérience” to my pupils. Year after year, new groups came back to West London from the Ardeche to share the most amazing stories with the school community about their week-long outdoor adventure. The exceptional quality of programmes combined with high-quality pedagogy Phil has offered our school has always been exceptional. His camps have equipped our young people with skills for life and has instilled in them a love of the great outdoors. I cannot wait to discover Active Travel Camp.
