LeaP 2018

LEAP will be Letting you Explore Another Place from the 11th - 19th August 2018.

After a bit of deliberation we have decided to venture out to the Italian Alps but more specifically Valle d’Aosta at Acorn Adventures Alpine Adventure site. 

What we know so far


We are taking 127 Explorers who are between the ages of 13.5 and 17 inclusive, by the time of the event (11-19 August 2018). 


If you are looking for an action packed, once in a lifetime trip then this is the trip for you! You will be rock climbing/squeezing, gorge scrambling, white water rafting, navigating a high ropes course like no other, experiencing archery, kayaking, canoeing, raft building, paddle boarding, abseiling and bouldering whilst taking in the amazing scenery of the Italian Alps.

And if that was not enough for you then you can also look forward to exploring the local town castle, hiking through the Gran Paradiso National Park and taking in the views and learning about the history of Mont Blanc whilst in Cable car, eat at an authentic Italian pizzeria and taste the splendors of an Italian Geletaria!


With the activity supplier being Acorn Adventure you are not only getting a once in a lifetime adventure but your also getting 35 years of experience in running adventurous activities and inspiring young people to enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle, pre-pitched static tents will be waiting for you to arrive, all of which are standing height with hard flooring and bunk beds. All food will be prepared and cooked by a professional on site catering team which means that the food will be tasty and none of the food will be deep fried.

There will be 2 pre-camps to this event with LEAP 


 The campsite is set in the heart of Aosta Valley, Italy bordered by France and Switzerland and located on the banks of the Dora Baltea River. It boasts magnificent mountain views and is within walking distance of the pretty Italian village of Villeneuve, popular for it’s pizzeria and Geletaria’s!
