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 on the beautiful Languedoc Coast in France.

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 and experience success as they achieve new things, every day. It’s an 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 and sit-on kayaks.

Excursion Day
Enjoy the local area and culture with a day out and about at a local place of interest: many groups choose to spend the day in Carcassonne. We have a variety of options to suit you.

Fun-packed Evenings
Our centre teams know how to keep everyone entertained well into the evening. There's a nightly disco and evening entertainment sessions which are lots of fun for everyone!
