Active Travel Camp


Welcome to Active Travel Camp

Active Travel Camps offer action-packed three-week summer holiday camps for children aged 11 – 18, taking them on an incredible French adventure.

Why we love it

Good to know


Active Travel Camps (ATC) is an international residential summer camp for 11 – 18-year-olds, taking guests on a whistlestop tour through some of France’s most daring and beautiful adventure destinations. Adventurers will form lasting friendships as they climb, canoe and explore some truly spectacular places.

Starting in the Alps at our picturesque mountain base in Morzine, it's straight in with white-water-rafting, mountain biking, zip-lining through the rocky outcrops and kayaking on Lac de Montriond! Together with their new friends, they'll explore all that the Alpine landscape has to offer.

After this, they'll travel south to the Rhone-Alpes, exploring the stunning Ardeche River by canoe as eagles sore overhead and rapids rumble them along. Gorge hiking, treetop high ropes and a pre-historic cave visit form a bursting agenda, but there’s still time for some river swims and market visits.

In the last week, adventurers will head west to the beautiful white sand beaches of the French coast to spend their days commanding the seas and rivers, with activities ranging from catamaran sailing to paddle boarding, white water rafting, canyoning and windsurfing.

All meals and transfers between site are included in the price, as well as a once weekly laundry service.


ATC firmly believe that a good night’s rest is imperative to a great day’s adventure, so their accommodation is tip top. In Week One guests will stay in a beautiful ski chalet, in week two they’ll stay in a Gite and in week three they’ll stay in coastal chalets.
Guests will share their sleeping room with a maximum of four others and rooms will be allocated according to age and gender.
All of the accommodation has leisure facilities, including swimming pools, so there is fun to be had even during downtime.

    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.
