International summer camps in Europe
At Mountain Adventure Camps we provide award winning, English speaking international summer camps in Europe, in a home-from-home environment where children can learn new skills and develop interests. We are located in Tignes les Brévières in the French Alps; a breath taking region in Europe. At Mountain Adventure Camps we cater to your children’s intellectual and cognitive needs across a range of activities; enhancing skills and developing confidence.
Our international summer camp programme
After a healthy breakfast campers partake in fun and engaging interactive French or English language lessons, which are for 45 minutes each day.
Language lessons are followed by a general sport session designed to develop team work, such as football, tennis, volleyball or basketball.
After a healthy, freshly made lunch we embark on an adrenaline filled afternoon.
Then it’s back to the chalet for dinner, followed by an exciting evening activity.
