Step back in time to explore the ancient ruins of Greece, whilst hitting up the great outdoors for the ultimate lakeside adventure. From hiking in the mountains to snorkeling and kayaking, this is the ideal destination for any Guide and Scout group.
A typical day…
Start your day bright and early at Heraion Lake where the golden sand is hit by crystal clear water, and groups can choose from a range of water sport activities to get involved in. After an exciting and active morning, take a break and soak up the sun whilst enjoying a packed lunch, before returning back to the water to carry on the fun. As the evening draws in, you’ll make your way back to camp for an evening meal and some time to relax after a busy day on the lake.
Greece has so much more to offer, from exploring the history in the old city of Athens, to a full day of hiking and orienteering at Geraneia Mountain. Great for team-building and soaking up the culture, each activity will leave your group with unforgettable memories, life-long friendships and experiences like no other!
Based in Loutraki, Sportcamp is a self-contained, fully-catered sports and activity centre with state-of-the-art facilities. After a fun-filled, activity-packed day, head back to camp where you can make the most of the free on-site equipment. Take a dip in the pool, play a game of tennis or simply relax at the pool café. There’s something for everyone!
Known for its ancient ruins and Greek mythology, Athens’ layered history can be uncovered with every corner turned. Its incredible architecture, such as the Acropolis (which dates back to the 5th century BC), can be seen from almost every part of the city. A marble-made emblem of the city, its magnificent temples and intricate statues can’t help but draw you in.
But amongst all the remnants of ancient Greece, Athens still has a creative energy about it, where large-scale graffiti and colourful street art give the city an urban edge. So when you’re walking around the city, keep a look out for some artistic surprises!
Fun Fact: Did you know that Athens is Europe’s oldest capital and one of the world’s oldest cities?
