When the kids are off for summer break, it’s time for parents to start panicking about getting them involved with some activity or the other. Every year, several events are held throughout the world for children who are on their summer break, but most of them are very cliched. While it’s easy to engage the younger kids, there is always a lack of stimulating activity that parents can provide the tweens and teens. Keeping them excited enough to come back for more is also a tough ask. For parents who live in France or for those who are about to take a vacation in France, there is good news. Sailing schools in France and summer camp activity organizers provide sailing summer camps for tweens and teens. The best part about the summer camps in France is that you don’t even have to be a local to participate in these camps, and most of them are available to foreigners as well, giving your children a multicultural experience.
The Leucate Beach
Ever wondered what 17 kilometers of sandy beaches could offer children? The answer is ‘A LOT.’ The world-famous beach attracts visitors from all over the world for its best water-related experiences. The beach plays host to some of the best kitesurfers and windsurfers that the world has ever seen.
Accommodation and Activities to Expect
According to the organizer you choose there are campsites where the children get to stay and experience the beaches. There are bungalow tents available for children to stay in with heaps of activities backed throughout the day. Whether it be kite-surfing, sand-sailing or pure kite flying, the organizers offer the children a myriad of experiences apart from a course in sailing. With the right supervision and authorized personnel, children who are interested in becoming active sailors are in for more than just that. Each of the camps usually goes on for about ten days at a time or even 20 days depending on the child’s interest. Personal and group attention is rendered to the children depending on budgets and availability.
Not all children take to sailing straight away. Sitting through a sailing program is a boring time. Therefore, while some of the sailors like it, many don’t. For this reason, the classes are made fun and interactive to help children understand the concepts of sailing in a friendly manner. When the organizers add additional activities as part of their sailing camp experience, it is found that children are more in tune to the course structure. Therefore, while some kids take to sailing, they can also get to; earn other water-related and beach related activities that they can enjoy outside the camp.
The French International Language Camps can add the sailing experience along with a language learning experience. This camp is perfect for individuals who are visiting France and want their children to experience everything French and take away some learning with them. The summer camp with this organizer provides not only the kid’s water-related activities but also other activities and events to participate in such as hiking and camping — a perfect take away from a French holiday for kids.
