4. Make new friends

Spend time with other international children and teens you would not normally meet. We know that friendships made at camp can last a lifetime. Every year we hear stories about our campers travelling around the world to catch up with their friends from camp! We are so lucky that with modern technology we can keep in touch with our friends in every corner of the globe.

5. Try something new

Our fabulous range of activities gives you the chance to try something different, find a new passion or even be pushed out of your comfort zone! We love seeing campers over come their fears each summer or find a love for something unexpected.

6. Become even more independent

Make your own decisions without parental dependency in a safe environment. From deciding what to wear each day to being responsible for your pocket money on a trip… you’ll mature during your stay with us.

7. Enjoy being young

“There is a creative and therapeutic joy in playing and laughing together under a blue sky, with the space to run about and enjoy being young.” All of our camps have tonnes of open space where you can run free! Say goodbye to city life and hello to fresh, clean air in the most beautiful surroundings.

8. A different perspective

You won’t remember you best days of YouTube, Instagram or an afternoon on your favourite PS4 game, but you will remember your best days at XUK. Our camps allow you to take advantage of everything summer has to offer.

9. Build your character

Your parents often tell us that after camp you are kinder, understand the importance of giving, are more equipped to stand up for what you know is right and are more willing to be responsible. That makes us beam from ear to ear!
