A UNIQUE JOURNEY: SET SAIL EACH DAY TO NEW ADVENTURES ON SEA AND LAND!
A once in a lifetime adventure
Our Sea & Island Adventure Camp offers students the experience of a lifetime, as they embark on a 2-week journey doing a wide variety of activities on sea and land with a group of likeminded youngsters aboard 45-foot modern yachts, sailing around the beautiful island of Corsica.
Sailing is done by our experienced captains and crew, assisted by students. As such, students do not need any prior experience with sailing, and will gain some experience with the various skills required to pilot and maintain a sailing vessel.
Activities in the mountains, on shore and at sea
The focus of the programme is on the multitude of activities – taking place in the mountains, on shore and at sea. The vessel serves as a fun ‘hop-on, hop-off’ means of getting us from one breathtaking location to another for fun team challenges and exciting outdoors activities each day. It also helps us create a safe bonding place with a familial atmosphere where students can really get to know each other and the staff.
Therefore, we sail close to the shore and most of the time is spent on exciting activities on land and sea.
Accompanied by qualified experts, our students develop important leadership and life skills while enjoying a wide range of activities, excursions, games and educational workshops over the course of the trip, with new experiences every day.
This exciting trip is open to anyone aged 12 to 17 who will benefit from a very personalised approach and a purpose-designed leadership programme delivered by experienced trainers, subject experts, and sports instructors. The programme is based around measurable learning outcomes which are fully integrated and applied in all outdoor activities.
The spectacular 2-week journey begins in Porto Vecchio in Corsica and continues westwards circling the entire island before ending back in Porto Vecchio, with many stunning stops along the way at hidden bays, cliffs, mountains, a Natural Reserve, as well as visits to the historic Mediterranean towns of Calvi, Ajaccio, and Bonificio.

This camp was a dream. Sailing from one beautiful place to another to do amazing activities with amazing people. All activities challenged me daily and pushed my boundaries. I will remember this for the rest of my life as the most incredible experience ever. Thank you!
Typical day at camp
Students wake up in their comfortable and modern ensuite bedroom shared with one other student, before enjoying a healthy and tasty breakfast prepared by our onboard chef.
An experience-rich expedition
As part of their journey around the Corsican coast, our campers get to enjoy new sights and experiences each time we reach a new location, while learning sailing and navigation techniques and participating in new activities each day.
A diverse programme
Every day, students enjoy a diversity of activities, games, excursions and workshops, both aboard the ship and on land. These are open to everyone regardless of age, fitness level or experience, and our students learn how to apply various leadership skills effectively through the activities, all under the guidance of our senior trainers.
Before dinner, there is time for students to relax in their cabins, enjoy the warm Mediterranean sun on deck, or go for a swim in the sea. Our evenings are fun-filled with on and off boat activities like wakeboarding, games night, torch lit walks through a coastal village and roasting marshmallows at the campfire on a beach.
At the end of the day we gather together to evaluate what we have learned and look forward to the next day. In the evening or early morning, we sail further round the coast to a new location.
