Run by children, for children


To create a community for a week run by the children with the support of two adults.
The children run the camp; cooking, cleaning, deciding on the rules for the camp and how to deal with problems when they arise. This is done through the democratic meeting held every day.

Why all this? To empower young people to learn to manage their own groups whether for co-living, study, creative projects, work and at the same time to have lots of fun, making friends and getting to know people by doing meaningful things together in a free, responsible environment.


For children aged 11-16

How many? Up to 16 maximum.


We have organised a couple in advance to the seaside near Bordeaux and to the riverside, others can be organised by the students when all together at the camp.


Please see here for camps we have run in 2018 and 2019
