Welcome to acorn adventure!

As a leading provider of school and group trips (established back in the early 80's), we are delighted to be busy planning summer 2021 and 2022 at our Adventure Centres in France, Spain, Malta, Italy and the UK. 2020 was the first year in our history that we were unable to deliver programmes to our schools, groups and families and it's been an unprecedented time for us all. Wow, what a year! We thank you for your patience, understanding and support. We know it's not been easy and are grateful to the many who have thanked us and shared stories of the wonderful times you've had with us over the years. We can't wait to open our centres next summer and see all the pupils enjoying our trips again.

Explore our school & group adventure residential trips in FranceSpain, Malta, Italy and UK, which have been carefully selected for their locations so that we can offer the best adventure & cultural experiences for young people. 

Our aim is to provide you with educational, character building outdoor experiences at affordable prices. We believe passionately that every child should experience a journey of adventure throughout their school life.

Our range of school trips have been created to help young people develop a good sense of adventure & discovery and grow from a little acorn into a majestic oak. That's why it all began in 1982...and why we are still here today.

#The Acorn Way

Acorn has been popular with schools and groups for decades because of these five reasons:

  1. Location, location, location. Our activity centres are all in beautiful outdoor settings close to beaches, rivers, lakes, mountains and forests to give you the best outdoor experience. All of our centres have plenty of outdoor space for socialising and playing, ensuring a great experience both during and after activities.
  2. Small and friendly centres. All of our school & group trips offer you exclusive use of your own private village and dining marquee or indoor accommodation area, providing a really relaxed, personal and safe experience. 
  3. High quality activity programmes. We deliver action-packed programmes with a good variety of land and water activities as well as evening entertainment & cultural visits so that your group are active, engaged, learning and having fun throughout the whole trip. 
  4. Teacher owned, teacher led. Owned by a former teacher, we understand, we care and we work hard to make your experience easier.
  5. Excellent value for money. 90% of schools tell us we are great value for money because our prices are often the best and what we deliver for the money is exceptional.
