Normandy Adventure - Activity School Trips

Voyager Adventure at Annoville Beach (Normandy) is the ideal adventure school trip destination. Situated on the stunning sand dune beaches of Normandy, our campsite (Voyager Village) is at the foot of the dunes, creating a safe paradise for school groups to enjoy our activity programme delivered by fully qualified staff. Students stay full board in tents & teachers in Coco Tents.

Voyager Adventure Village, Annoville Beach

The Voyager Camping Village at Les Peupliers is situated a short 400 metre walk from Annoville beach, separated only by dunes and unspoiled grasslands.

The quiet car-free area of Les Mielles is tucked away from tourists, boasting white sandy shores and scenic rolling hills, a quiet space for your adventure. Our Normandy Adventure programme is just one part of a much larger Voyager operation in Normandy, welcoming over 8,000 UK school children every year to our two centres in the area, Château de la BaudonnièreLa Grand' Ferme.

At Les Peupliers, this is no run-of-the-mill camping experience for our teachers as they get to stay in beautiful 'coco tents'. And students stay in tents.

Sample excursions

Family Adventure 2016 389

Bay walk to Mont st Michel

Rated one of the most beautiful place in Normandy. Built in the 11th century, the Abbey is a feat of medieval architecture with outstanding and panoramic views over the bay – and its rooms are as impressive as its exterior. As a centre of Christian pilgrimage, the Abbey has been kept in good condition throughout its life. The nearby Maison de la Baie explains the history of Le Mont St Michel with an audiovisual tour.

The adventurous can approach by crossing on the tidal causeway, but wearing shorts is recommended! One of our expert French native guides will be keeping you on course, whilst noting the local flora and fauna, pointing out some of the many points of interest, and explaining about the famous salted sheep.


goats2

Goats Cheese Farm

'La Chèvre rit' is an educational farm situated in Granville. Here your students will have the opportunity to pet the animals (goats, donkeys and many more) and learn how goats cheese is made! Students are invited to observe all the processes involved in the production of this unique product. Ends with a lovely tasting session! http://www.la-chevre-rit.fr/

 


mussel farm

Oyster and Mussel Farm

Normandy is one of the leading oyster and mussel production regions in France. Your students will be taken on a guided tour of an oyster and mussels farm to see how the Mussels and Oysters are farmed - they'll also be given the opportunity to sample them too!  


french market

French Market trip

French markets are a staple of French culture and are always lively colourful affairs, selling local produce, French ‘fashion’ and accessories, live animals and plenty of seasonal fruit and veg. The vendors are usually friendly; so there is no better place for your students to practise your French and pick up souvenirs.

Sample activities

Family Adventure 2016 0227

Archery

After the obligatory safety talk, students will learn how to shoot arrows in our safe archery arena. Our qualified staff will teach your students how to perfect their target skills and become little robin hoods.


Family Adventure 2016 0358

Abseiling

On our own purpose built climbing wall, students take it in turns to climb whilst those not climbing will encourage and coach alongside our qualified instructors. The easy part of abseiling comes after you have reached the top of the tower! All ages enjoy this session and after you’ll feel a great sense of achievement. Harnesses, helmets and other necessary safety equipment are all supplied.


Day 5 009

Bread making

Everyone loves making things they can enjoy and eat later, and even more so on our school trip because we combine bread baking with singing French songs! Students love getting covered in flour, kneading their dough and enjoying their tasty treats later with their evening meal.


Orienteering

Orienteering

Students will be taught map reading skills using orienteering games and courses around the site grounds. Orienteering is an excellent motivational and recreational activity, which increases love of the outdoors and promotes environmental awareness.


Family Adventure 2016 0353

Climbing

As with the abseiling, students climb on own purpose built climbing wall. Our trained and qualified staff encourage students to get involved and run competitions and help all to get their personal best. 


Canoeing

Canoeing

Canoeing gives students the opportunity to learn various new skills in a safe, but fun environment. To partake students should be confident in water, but by no means an excellent swimmer. Safety equipment is used at all times.


Day 1 Games Mini Farm 21

Team Games

The staff run various fun and exciting team games. Everyone loves these and they always provide camaraderie among the students. Great for building social and teamwork skills.


Sand yachting activity school trip

Sand Yachting

This activity is great fun and unique experience students likely wouldn't have done before. Sail across the sand with only the wind to power you!


Pêche à pied

Pêche à pied (or "fishing on foot") is an activity that takes place in the bay and is similar to rock pooling, but uniquely French. Did you know: Pêche à pied is practiced by around 2 million French people each year?

Evening Entertainment

Beach Games

On the Monday night the Voyager Adventure team will run various beach games including Volley Ball, Slacklining, Limbo competition, Tug of war (beach style), Frisbee, Football, Sand dune surfing and more!

Testimonials

In short it was absolutely excellent. I don't think I can thank you enough Phil, for providing such a fantastic experience for the children. Your staff were top notch and were the icing on the cake. Their experience, knowledge, enjoyment and the way in which they related to the children was second to none. They are certainly a group of staff who you must feel very proud of. Thank you.
