INTEGRATION DAY for the VSF Groups IN PARIS  New !

PARIS CITY TOUR ON A DOUBLE-DECKER BUS! 

Note: This applies to all VSF campers
except children attending our camps in Burgundy (Camps 4 and 15)

The tour follows a non-stop circuit departing from the hotel. During 1 and a half hour, the children will be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the best monuments of Paris aboard an ecologically-friendly "green bus".  And to make this tour as fun and informative as possible, the commentaries will give them numerous details and anecdotes about the historical and beautiful capital of France. A unique experience!  For more details click here.

This day of "integration" is very important.  After a long trip, children can rest and get to know the team, meet other VSF campers.  It is a good preparation prior to their departure to camp.
