Our ideal programme for a week's stay for an active family Day 1:

After driving, stretch your legs with a hike right next to the campsite.
Take the road to the right after the L’Ideal tennis courts, then turn left onto the "chemin du Nanceau". You can climb up to the L’Oratoire for a nice view of the lake, or stop at the Nanceau waterfall. It is also a very nice place to run or for mountain biking.

In the afternoon, ask about all the activities offered by our team.
The programme of activities is displayed or can be accessed via our "Cool'n camp" mobile application. You can also take advantage of the large playgrounds with its trampolines, slides, huts, city stadium and also our onsite gyms.

A unique experience for the whole family: after a two-hour hike, you will be welcomed at the summit with a typical meal and a view of the mountain.

Book your night in a refuge to enjoy the calm, the starry night the peace and quiet, the starry night away from all light and noise pollution in the middle of nature. You will also be able to see the animals of the alpine farm and go back down in the day to normal life !

Day 5: Family activities in the river to cool off !

Canyoning is possible from 8 years old. You go down a river or a canyon with an instructor by jumping several metres into the water, abseiling or sliding down natural slides. The views are magnificent, the white water swimming is invigorating and the sensations are there! Our partners will provide you with all the necessary equipment : helmet, ropes, neoprene suit so that you can enjoy the moment in complete safety.

Rafting consists in going down a river in an inflatable boat with several people. The nearest base is on the Isère river, about 1 hour drive from the campsite. The activity lasts between 1h30 and 2h while paddling
