Open from 29/04 to 05/10/2015


Discover the rich natural and cultural heritage of Senonches in Le Perche. All year around you can choose from an assortment of days out that will leave lasting memories: hiking on foot or horseback, Le Perche Natural Park, Chartres, etc.

In July and August the Senonches Huttopia team lays on an activity programme for the whole family :


Kids Events (Récré-Enfants)

In July and August children aged between 5 and 12 can join the Huttopia Kids Events (Récré-Enfants).

These are a great opportunity for them to make new pals and thrive in the outdoors by getting involved in games and fun handicraft activities.

During the event the MC will guide the children through new adventures that gets them in close, straightforward touch with Nature. The events are full of variety, covering handicrafts, outdoor games and sensory experiments, giving children the chance to learn about insects, wildlife, flora, the 5 senses, birds and much more. 

Children could, for example, take part in a nature or photo quest, build a bird-feeder, make an insect net and a bow and arrow, solar water-heater or water magnifying glass, or play blind man's buff in the trees or Time’s up nature.

Some of these children's activities are run in partnership with the FRAPNA (Rhône-Alpes Federation for the Protection of Nature), which is a member of the FNE (France Nature and Environment Association). We hope that this partnership will help raise children's awareness of environmental issues in a fun way.
