AGE 12-16

 

Theme "Séjour Sport-Aventure"

In the Middle Ages, the South-Aveyron region was the home and land of the Knights Templar. Very rich, they gathered an enormous treasure, the track of which nobody has ever found... The legend says that it may be hidden in a cave down the foothills, or in the depths of the forest, in ruins of a castle somewhere in the Aveyron,…Between legends and reality we invite our campers to leave on an incredible adventure in the search of this lost treasure !

 

On the first day of camp, they will discover a piece of parchment that they will have to decipher. The clues they are going to find will to lead them to the next stage, on a hunt to find other parchments and more clues ! 

 

Through this treasure hunt, our campers will practice various outdoor sport activities, such as mountain biking, accro-branche (adventure courses), « bike and run » races (by team),  and will be initiated to speleology (cave exploration) and Geocaching (they will become experts in GPS location) !
