About Le Pré Catelan

For an outdoor adventure camp less than hour from Calais, Le Pré Catelan is an ideal destination, especially for younger Cubs and Scouts. Located on the Opal Coast, near the small town of Hardelot, it’s just 10 minutes’ walk from the beach. Le Pré Catelan is one of our smaller centres, but it has a homely feel and is well positioned for you to explore this region of France.

Adventure activities take place in the centre grounds and at the beach and there are plenty of opportunities to give you Cubs and Scouts a real flavor of France.
