More Detail

We leave by coach from Washington Services on the morning of Saturday 23 May. We’ve used our coach company, North East Coach Travel many times. We have enjoyed faultless support from them over the years and the company comply with all relevant standards of safety.

We cross the English channel via Dover-Calais by ferry and travel south east across France to the Alps. We arrive at lunchtime on Sunday and Natacha Camier, our host, greets us with a welcome meal.

The chalet has a good standard of accommodation. Scouts sleep in rooms of 4-6 young people. Each room has a shower and toilet.

There is a games room, an online IT suite, an outdoor all-weather games pitch and a lounge.
