What will students see and do?

School holidays are the perfect opportunity for teachers to give their pupils a hands-on adventure where they can put their classroom knowledge to the test.

One of the top school trip ideas that teachers can take advantage of is to travel to France for a residential outdoor adventure. You’ll find some of the best outdoor activities at La Savane’s campgrounds in the south of France.

La Savane is a gorgeous campground located in the heart of the French Alps. It offers an abundance of outdoor activities for students, making it a great choice for teachers wanting to push their students to get outside and explore their surroundings.

On a trip to La Savane, students will be able to see the gorgeous French countryside. There are kayaking and rafting opportunities, hiking trails, swimming spots, and great places to eat in the area.

All of these activities make for an exciting expedition for students. It’s a great way for them to explore a different region and get out of the UK while still learning.

Planning a school trip to La Savane is made easier by the fact that you can book your trip through Acorn Adventure. This company will handle the logistics for you and assist you in planning your lessons.

This makes it far easier for teachers to create an engaging and educational trip to the area. Plus, Acorn Adventure will handle the reservations and scheduling so you can ensure you’re getting the most out of your excursion.

Minimum and maximum group size

The recommended adult-to-student ratio is:

Following these guidelines will ensure that your students are able to engage with the many activities offered at La Savane safely.
