PROJECT WILD THING is a film led movement to get more kids (and their folks!) outside and reconnecting with nature. The film is an ambitious, feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.’

What do you remember from your childhood? For most of us, happy thoughts of being outside are our strongest memories... Climbing trees, riding  bikes, making dens and roaming free until dinner time...


Take the stress out of travelling solo with our single parent holidays!

All too often the long awaited family holiday can be overshadowed by the stress of money, time off work, the dreaded boredom factor and hours and hours of travel and all weighs up and it makes what should be a relaxing time, potentially quite stressful.  If you are a single parent, multiply this by 10 and the results can be overbearing! 


The South of France is our most popular destination!

We have recently opened up another family coach holiday to our Ardeche Adventure Camp the week of the 1st-9th August 2014- due to popular demand. The South of France is proving to be our most popular destination so far this year, with two of the holidays now almost full. With its beautiful weather, scenery and activities that include paddling the Ardeche River, climbing on the local crags and relaxing by the swimming pool in free time, it's easy to see why this family holiday is so in demand.

Set amidst the trees, on the banks of two rivers, our picturesque, secluded campsite (with pre-erected family tents), with its on-site swimming pool and cafe bar is perfectly positioned for a family adventure. Known for its incredible limestone gorge, the real highlight here is the two day canoe descent down the Ardeche River with overnight bivvi, led by our qualified river team.

This is an action-packed, yet relaxing family adventure holiday - with something on offer to keep the whole family happy. Activities are suitable for children aged 7+ and evening activities are also provided free of charge.

At just £499 per adult and £449 per child for a nine day, fully-inclusive holiday, you can stop worrying about paying high prices during school holidays. Here's an affordable and exciting solution.
