Services for children

football cages, stilts, sandpit The shelter climb is a walk of choice for the whole family that has no particular difficulty. The route is varied and children will be delighted to discover the waterfalls, fauna and flora that abound. (marmots whistle, the waterfalls drizzle depending on the season, the ibex approach...) A children's library and numerous board games Adapted prices and menus for children under 12 years old Fun and exclusive idea: educational maps for toddlers to download and fill in during the ascent to avoid the traditional "when are we coming"! Answers at the hide with a little surprise for those who play the game. Another idea: Possibility of renting donkeys for a day or a circuit of several days. Guaranteed success with children and adults http://www.anesduhautgiffre.com/ And always: the "Discover nature" backpack lent by the shelter to hike higher and have fun (8-12 years), do not hesitate to ask for it our children's library, a host of board games and outdoor games: tree house, wheelbarrow, tricycle and trailer for group adventures, football cage and ball for teenagers, giant wooden games...
