What makes your company different from the competition?

We believe in getting back to basics and using the real, natural environment for our activity sessions, including lakes, mountains, rivers, beaches, crags and caves.

Over 35 years, we have built up an excellent reputation for safety and delivering quality activity programmes and now have 11 accreditations and hundreds thousands of customers travelling with us each year.

Our traditional pre-erected camping villages are designed to give our groups their own private space for sleeping, eating and socialising, to encourage a real ‘community spirit’. This is a really easy environment for teachers/leaders to monitor their group and make sure everyone is safe and having a good time.

How many people do you employ or train each year?

Each year we recruit over 250 staff and send them out to our stunning locations.

If you are looking for work in the great outdoors in a family orientated environment, then Acorn Adventure is the company for you. Wake up each morning to the beach, mountains, lakes or woodlands on your doorstep and do something different with your summer for 2017.

Why are you a good company to work for or train with?

Our staff get to make the most of the amazing locations of our centres, this may be: leading a group down the Ardèche river in Southern France; hiking through the Italian Alps or windsurfing on a Spanish Beach.

We are a family business and as such our centres run like a family, with everybody living and working on our centre together. All of our food is made on site, our administrators run the finances and our assistants help with the running of our centres. At Acorn Adventure we do not just recruit activity staff; we have a range of positions for those looking for work in an outdoor environment from our catering teams, bar staff and drivers.

We give all staff the opportunity to complete pre and post-season training to gain NGB qualifications in different activities, on top of the standard comprehensive induction & training programme we provide.

At Acorn we value our staff and get to know you all by name. Our Head Office team are involved with the running of the centre every step of the way; you'll get to know us by name too, and will see us coming to visit all of our centres across the season. We believe a business is run from the top down, so expect to see us serving our guests food, cleaning the toilets and interacting with the children. We won’t ask you to do anything that we wouldn’t do ourselves.
