We know all too well that finding a family holiday that can keep teenagers happy isn’t the easiest. You need to get the balance right between fun with the family, and time on their own where they can enjoy some independence.

So we asked 15 year old Connell what he thinks makes Eurocamp ideal for teen holidays…
1. Your own room
“Having my own room on holiday was massively important to me; knowing that I wouldn’t have to put up with annoying siblings hassling me made me a lot happier. In our mobile home I was able to set up all of my stuff how I wanted it, so I could watch films and play games on my laptop whilst my younger siblings were being bathed and put to bed without being interrupted”.
2. Plenty to do
“There are loads of activities to do on a Eurocamp parc, with pools, restaurants, shops, lakes and other stuff for teenagers to do. It was good to have the variety and do some stuff I wouldn’t normally do at home, so I could be kayaking on the lake one day and cycling the next. We’ve been to various locations in the past too and it’s good to get out and explore the local town, spend the day on the beach or head to a theme park”.

3. Amazing pools
“I love swimming pools and could mess around on waterslides all day. I’ve been away with Eurocamp a few times and the pool complexes have always had pretty amazing slides as well as lazy rivers and jacuzzis”.

4. Teenage kicks
Eurocamp offer a kids’ club called Base for teens age 13-17 in 10 locations, but there are plenty of socialising opportunities for teens on parc: “It’s easy to meet new people on a Eurocamp holiday and we quite often get chatting to other families in neighbouring accommodation or in the bars and restaurants”.

5. King of the grill
“I love BBQs and could eat them all week! We’ve had really nice burgers in the past after getting some steak minced up at the local butchers and then had ribs with potatoes and sweetcorn another day. It’s good to get involved and help dad with the cooking”
