UCPA is a not for profit organisation set up more than 50 years ago to encourage young people to participate in outdoor sports and to make good resorts and quality coaching more accessible. UCPA has changed a little over the years, however the ethos remains very much the same. Therefore although there are some exceptional circumstances and packages, the majority of UCPA courses and holidays have an age restriction of 18-45. UCPA has a specific exemption from Age Discrimination Laws in France and Europe due to the ethos behind the organisation.
UCPA have made some exceptions to their age restrictions in recent years, introducing special courses and weeks to allow those up to aged 55 to take advantage of the excellent value UCPA summer and winter sports activities. You can see these summer courses here and winter courses here.
During the winter season we have Family Week trips and some youth programmes (16-17 year olds). We do not have an equivalent during the summer.
