Summer 2021

XUK Excel will not be running in 2021 due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 and travel restrictions. We intend to run in Summer 2022.

Activities at XUK Excel

One of the things that makes XUK Excel so unique is the opportunity campers get to follow their passion whilst in our care! Mornings are focused on their selected 'Elective'. This could be something they loved or something new. Electives are a great chance for campers to take ownership of their holiday, develop and improve skills and have a focus!

The rest of the day is spent participating in a great range of activities with fellow campers.

Have a look at our sample timetable to give you an idea of some of the activities that may be on offer during your child's stay.
