Summer Family Holiday

In the Summer of 2018 Action Outdoors will be running a UCPA Family Week at UCPA Bombannes on the 29th of July.

Rather than using the UCPA Centre itself to accommodate families, the Family Week will use Camping Dune Bleue which is close to the UCPA Centre.

Camping Dune Bleue

The campsite is located in the forest of Landes, in a beautiful location that borders Lake Carcans, one of the biggest lakes in France. The campsite is a 5 minute walk to the ocean and is a perfect place for families to connect with nature and participate in some amazing sports. The UCPA Bombannes centre is nearby, which is where all activities and instruction will start from. 


We're offer a few different options for accommodation at Camping Dune Bleue for our Summer Family Week. The options for families are either on site modern 4-5 or 6-8 bed cabins (modern mobile home), or glamping tents (4/5 beds, or 6 bed options available). 

The 6-8 cabin has 1 double bed, 4 singles and a pull out sofa bed.

The 4-5 cabin has 1 double bed, 2 singles and a pull out sofa bed.

The 6 Bed Glamping Tent (34.5M²) has 1 double bed, and 2 sets of bunk beds

The 4-5 Bed Glamping Tent (30M²) has 1 double bed and 1 set of bunk beds

Both have a kitchen with basic cooking equipment and a fridge, bathroom and toilet, dining table and storage space. The gallery below has pictures of both the cabins and tents. 


Unlike normal UCPA weeks, food is not included in the price. This allows families the flexibility to eat out, cook in the tent/cabin, or BBQ on the decking! However, it is possible to take advantage of a full board package - this is at an additional cost of £210 per person for the week. Please see the course description for more information.​

If you select full board, then the campsite has an on site buffet restaurant, and all meals are included in the full board price. The restaurant was recently renovated and has an outdoor terrace with a panoramic view over the lake. It has a relaxed and casual atmosphere with traditional and healthy food. Tables are shared with other families which creates a social dining experience. There also an outdoor barbecue which will be used for some evening meals. 


​If you select full board, then a breakfast basket is given to ​you and your family with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, ​fruit etc to be eaten in your accommodation.

Lunch and Dinner are buffet style with starters, hot main meals featuring meat, fish, vegetables, salad and vegan options are possible. There is always plenty of choice with something to suit everyones tastes! Desserts are generally a choice of fruit, yogurts and ice creams. 

Dietary Requirements 

The UCPA chefs will always try and offer an alternative option for those with allergies or dietary needs (for example vegetarian dishes), however, they will be unable to provide specialist food alternatives such as gluten free bread or soy milk. We would advise you to bring such food stuff with you if you rely on these alternatives.


The UCPA staff plan family friendly entertainment throughout the week. The entertainment will vary between the centres but may include video nights, games nights, quizzes, karaoke and discos. Of course your family doesn't have to participate in the entertainment if you have other plans.

Camping reception

You will be welcomed by an English speaking coordinator at the campsite who will guide you and your family and orient you with the local area, events, activities and any other information you’ll require for your holiday.
