Zone C will include the academies of Créteil, Montpellier, Paris, Toulouse and Versailles.
Leave by zone
In France, pupils and students have several holidays in common, regardless of their zone: the All Saints' holiday, the Christmas holiday and of course the summer holiday! For the organisation of camping holidays, it is ideal if you want to bring together the family living all over France.
On the other hand, for the winter and spring holidays, it is not easy to go camping with friends or cousins belonging to another holiday zone: in fact, in 2022 for example, the school holidays for Zone A (winter and spring) start first, one week before Zone B and another week before Zone C!
