Where to stay


The Olympic Pool Paul Asseman in Dunkirk was completely renovated in 2011 and as well as a 50m main pool also features a Hammam, sauna, spa and a 25 metre pool as well. It's only 40 minutes from Calais providing an excellent base for British groups seeking an overseas camp destination in striking distance from the UK. You'll have access to the huge sandy beach for land training and relaxation and reservations can be made at the 10-pin bowling centre and indoor ice skating rink for a fun evening out for team-building.


Choose from swim pool venues in Talence and Canet-en-Roussillon, both located in the sunny south-west of France. We'll organise daily swim sessions for you combined with land training and excursion opportunities in order to get the very most from your programme and itinerary.
