Tailor-made activity camps for kids – Perfect for youth groups, guardianships and school trips in Portugal!

Our adventure holidays for youth groups in Portugal are an amazing opportunity for the kids to enjoy outdoor activities & watersports, explore a new destination & culture and to get to know each other. Not only is the weather in Portugal really great for an all year round destination in Europe, it also has a spectacular coastline from north to south and all the way to the islands, including Madeira.
Big Blue offers private kids camps & activity holidays for guardianships, schools and other youth groups throughout the country. Each camp is tailor-made to your group’s needs and preferences, so you can decide what activities your kids group will enjoy the most. Choose to combine city exploring with watersports in our most popular destination Lisbon, opt for something more rural and beachy in West Algarve or go for sub-tropical and adventure in Madeira.

Big Blue Adventures works with child-friendly accommodation options, like private villas, apartments, hotels and hostels. We offer a wide variety of outdoor activities such as surfing, coasteering and canyoning but also things like rock-climbing, Jeep tours and hiking. Our team will be there from the first moment of contact, all the way to the delivery of the school trip or holiday camp in Portugal. We can also add in extras such as meals, airport transfers and onsite games. Whether it’s a multi-night camp, day trip or the activity only, we’ve got you covered. When you’re ready just hit the ‘quote’ button, call or email us direct.

* Please note our kids camps are suitable for age 8 – 18 years old.
We only accept private group bookings, no individual sign-ups.

Hosted Holiday Camps

With any of our Big Blue Adventures we always aim for a personal customer service (Travel & Hospitality Award winners for ‘excellence in customer service’). We are there to take the stress off your hands and to coordinate the whole camp in Portugal. Working closely with the rest of your team is important to us and we want to make sure you get to enjoy the kids camp too!

Pics & Highlights Video

A really great way for the kids to show their parents what the camp was like, is with our highlights videos and pictures. You don’t need to worry about taking that perfect group picture as we’ll be bringing our GoPro cameras and shoot as much footage as we can. We’ll even bring the cameras during the outdoor activities to get lots of action shots in there and create a personal highlights video showing all the adventures.


If you need airport transfer or transport from your accommodation to our activities then we can arrange that for you, in fact it is usually expected on our adventure holiday camps in Portugal. We have mini-busses available for groups of all sizes. We also love to take the kids exploring around the local area, so our mini-busses come in handy!

Meals & Drinks

You can choose between self-catering, bed & breakfast, half board or all-inclusive for your active holiday camp. We can also include things like packed-lunches, BBQ nights and a local Portuguese dining experience. Often there will be professional caterers on site to provide the meals.

Holiday Camp Extras

There are lots of extras we can add to your kids camp in Portugal, including (outdoor) cinema nights, award nights, outdoor games such as slack-line, football, beach-volleyball, quiz nights and board-games. If you have any ideas, or would like more info on the extras we can provide, feel free to ask us on the Quote page.

Each year we organise an activity week for a large group of teenagers over the October half term. ... Right from the very first phone call, Dan & Heleen took the pressure off of us, they are both fantastic communicators, with regular emails/calls to confirm the agenda, timings, accommodation, and organising a personal chef, Dan and Heleen were with us every day of the trip, looking after the group and taking part in all of the activities, liaising with guides/instructors every day, and even made sure we never got lost by escorting us to all the destinations!The children had an amazing time, with an action packed schedule every single day, they made sure that the schedule was flexible to react to any changing weather conditions, and even went above and beyond with movie nights in a improvised cinema, prizes every evening for 'Adventurer of the day', and celebrated Halloween with lots of decorations and sweets etc etc, it was fantastic!Thank you Dan & Heleen,read more

Why We Love This…

“Portugal is such an amazing place for youth camps or school trips. From the weather, culture and amazing beaches to the epic activities – it all oozes world-class! Plus Portugal is a pretty safe country with friendly locals that adds to the experience. My big love on these trips is seeing young people grow through adventure, seeing them support each other on a surfing or coasteering activity with big smiles & high fives all round!”
