Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

5 reasons to try an FSC family break

Explore nature and try exciting new activities on a family holiday course with the Field Studies Council (FSC). The FSC is an environmental education charity which offers short breaks for families to enjoy together. Here are some of the top reasons why people choose them:

1. Healthy holidays
Bored of the sun lounger? An FSC family holiday course will get all members of the family involved in a range of activities which keep minds and bodies engaged, from identifying wildlife to white water rafting. Learning and being active will give everyone loads of energy and stories to share back at home.

2. Visit a stunning part of the UK
No need to check in at the airport or find your passport – FSC Centres are located across the UK from the Scottish Highlands to the south Devon coast. Choose a base close to home or set off for new horizons further afield. During your stay you will discover local wildlife, landscapes and spectacular scenery.

3. New friends
Sharing the experience with families with similar interests gives everybody the chance to socialise with different people. Courses have recommended age ranges to ensure activities will be relevant and enjoyed by all the participants.

4. Low carbon footprint
FSC centres are run in an environmentally sensitive manner with challenging targets on energy and waste. Food is sourced locally where possible and the fact that you are in the UK means the family is reducing its carbon footprint, without losing out on having a great holiday.

5. Great value for money
FSC family holiday courses have a price which includes all meals, accommodation and transport during the course and most importantly the full and interesting programme of activities. This means you get value for money and no worries about extra spending while you’re away.

Example holiday courses include Sand, Sea and Surf and Shropshire Wildlife Safari. For more information about the full programme or to request a free brochure please contact us on 0845 345 4071 or visit www.field-studies-council.org/family
