Mediterranean Watersports

for Cubs and Scouts

Take inspiration from the sea

Sun, sea and sand, but this is so much more than a beach holiday. Inspire your Scouts with a PGL trip to the Med.

You’ll see confident, positive young people enjoying a packed daily itinerary of thrilling watersports in perfectly placed locations in France or Spain.

Watch as they try out their new skills on the waves; sailing a catamaran across deep blue waters in the sun. They’ll grow in motivation and confidence. They’ll experience success as they achieve new things, every day. And there couldn’t be a better environment for them to enjoy themselves in such inspiring surroundings.

It’s the opportunity for your Scouts to challenge themselves, make new friends and discover a new part of the world. As well as something new about themselves.

Activities

You’ll spend all day on the water with each session normally scheduled for half a day. Your group can enjoy two different water sports every day, using a range of craft including catamarans, dinghies, windsurfers and sit-on kayaks.

Excursion Day
Enjoy the local area and culture with a day out and about. Choose a visit to a local place of interest or go for more water-based adventure at a local water park. We have a variety of options to suit you.

Fun-packed Evenings
We have a nightly disco and evening entertainment sessions that are lots of fun for all! Our centre teams know how to keep everyone entertained well into the evening!
