Home / Trips Abroad / School Activity Trips

Students and Group Leaders alike enjoy the personal feel and tranquil nature of the centre at AzuRivage. The campsite atmosphere coupled with the variety of activity programmes available from this site make it the perfect setting in which to boost confidence and develop teamwork.

AzuRivage is located on the outskirts of the small Landaise village of Azur on the shores of Lac Soustons. This is the southern most watersports centre we operate in southwest France, just a few miles from the pretty town of Soustons. This three star campsite is set in a beautiful wooded area adjacent to the lakeshore.

Facilities at this campsite include on-site supermarket, outdoor swimming pool, table tennis, basketball court and a small al-fresco bar. The lake, although slightly smaller than those further north still offers a vast operational area for our watersports activities. The majority of our watersports equipment is stored in a private port area that gives easy and safe access to and from the lake for activity sessions.

In addition to our highly successful multi-activity programme, sailing and surfing courses are also run here. The local Atlantic beaches are renowned worldwide as providing the best surf conditions anywhere in Europe. Where better to experience a taste of this exciting sport than under the watchful eye of a Rockley Instructor at a local beach break? Whether or not you choose to take a surf course, the local surf culture can be experienced on either evening or day trips to the local towns of Hossegor and Biarritz, the location of many world class, professional surf competitions throughout the season.

- A Residential Adventure
Residential activity trips provide an opportunity to gain experience of living away from home and the chance to develop key personal qualities such as self-reliance and increased independence.

A trip with Rockley means getting the most out of outdoor living, with ‘alfresco’ meals, plenty of fresh air, space and freedom to relax. Pupils are grouped in their accommodation according to their age and sex. Staff, pupils, and accompanying adults all eat together in our communal area, which provides an ideal opportunity to socialise.
