Crazywater We tried out GeoCaching at the weekend. It was good fun and we will definitely do it again.

simandme I remember camping as a teenager. The best thing we were given - was freedom.

We went camping with friends and their parents. Every afternoon the parents went for a 'snooze' and we were told to do our own thing. We stayed at national parks, where rangers provided activities for kids. We could join in, or go for walks, bicycles rides - just explore!!!

I think we were very lucky - how many kids these days are shown confidence/trust by their parents? (and please don't tell me that the world is more dangerous now) We had to learn how to deal with being 'bored'; but also, how to deal with situations.

This doesn't cost much, but will allow your kids to develop into great adults.

M3CBR600 1 up for GeoCaching - a great way to visit places you wouldn't normally go with the addition of a little competition and technology use along the way!

Easyriders Watersports, cycling, walking, bungee jumping...most of these have been suggested above.

Are they interested in nature? Some decent binoculars, and they might enjoy birdwatching, and if they have cameras they could photograph the wildlife they find.

get them scrapbooks, and encourage them to write about their experiences while away. They can stick in photos or any other interesting bits and pieces they find.

Find out if there are any local fairs or festivals on near where you are staying. They are free, and there's usually lots to see and do. Likewise, free concerts etc (plenty in Europe).

Get them a dog that likes to play and needs lots of walks...

barryd Kayaking down L'Ardeche in the peak season a couple of summers ago was one of the most fun things we ever did on a trip.

30 euros for the two of us including pickup and return.

We thought we would beat the crowds and go early but they soon caught up. There were hundreds of kayakers most of which didn't have a clue and it was just so funny. Especially as there were quite a few reasonably fast rapids.

There was just a complete mash up at some of them. How somebody wasn't drowned Ill never know.

Penquin What about working out a watersports package in various places?

e.g. you can spend a day being taught SAFE coasteering in Cornwall - sounds horribly dangerous but is very safely organised and supervised (we used to take school groups there every summer - VERY popular with 13 - 14 year olds)

then move to a different location and so some sea kayaking

or another venue and brush up on a sailing course or other activities at Roadford Reservoir (middle of Devon near Dartmoor);

and build a trip around different locations and different things to try - combined with the photo competition since most of the locations are stunningly photogenic........

You could tie in a visit to St Michael's Mount (near Marazion) and a walk across a causeway to the NT Island, or a trip to Burgh Island and a possible ride on an aquatic tractor to visit for a snack (VERY VERY expensive to stay or eat there though...... OUCH !)....

You could combine that with a trip on the Camel Trail to Padstein (sorry Padstow - it's just that Rick Stein has several excellent eating establishments there and his fish and chips are superb.......)..

Or you could cycle any of the many cycle trails in Cornwall;

Just a few thoughts for the SW of the UK, now if you say you want to be in France I will have another think......

billym Windsurfing. I learnt the cold way in Coniston Water.

My kids learnt at Gruissan Plage Aire near Narbonne directly on the etang where there is a centre for lessons and rentals.

It's a ten minute walk into town or a five minute drive to Narbonne Plage with all the bars/ amusements /water park /beach etc

It's a seriously cheap summer holiday .

barryd A lot of the big lakes in Europe hire out sail boats. Get out on lac st croix in provence when the mistral is blowing on a hobbie cat 18 and see if that doesn't put a smile on their little faces.

It could of course scar them for life! Maybe start with a wayfairer in a gentle breeze!

jhelm I did a lot of long board surfing in California so would love it if my kids got into it, but there are only a couple of surf spots in Italy and they are far away. Kayaking is probably a good idea, and I'm also thinking about paddle boarding, it's gotten very popular among the surfing community but can also be done on lakes and rivers.

My daughter is a good skier, but a stupid accident with the girl scouts on a sled put her in the hospital with a broken toe and a concussion, and ruined her lack of fear.
