As always, it has been a very busy year but we wouldn’t want it any other way! Once the summer is over, we like to reflect on the amazing year that we have had and have come up with some number to share with you...
That’s a lot of wonderful children and teenagers age 3 – 17 who joined us during their Easter or summer holidays at XUK Activity, XUK English, XUK Excel and Mini Minors & XUK Day Camp. A couple might have attended our day camp for just one day whereas others spent up to six weeks at our residential camps!
We are very lucky to have such an amazing, talented staff team working alongside us. Whether it was their first or fifth year working, they all did a fantastic job, delivering amazing activities, teaching fun and engaging English lessons or offering pastoral care to our campers.
Our staff ran SO many activities this year. There are lots on offer at all our camps from Bush Craft to Zumba and Gaga to Fencing! We are always looking for new ideas to offer even more variety next year...
Trips are always very popular at our residential camps. They are an opportunity to go off site, have a look around, soaking up British culture and do a spot of shopping. We also offer ‘Optional Extras’ to attractions such as the theme park and local stables.
Did it even happen if you didn’t take a photo? We try and capture as many moments as possible and this summer we took thousands of photos! 11,921 made the cut and have been uploaded onto CampMinder for you to enjoy!
It wouldn’t be a week at camp without our famous Saturday night Talent Show and Disco! We end each week with a boogie on the dance floor. Here at XUK Camps, we are big fans of ‘Vamos a la Playa’ and the ‘Cupid Shuffle’. What’s your summer jam?
Lots of our campers come to XUK Camps each summer to develop their English skills. We taught English in an interactive way to lots of eager campers!
Every week at our residential camps our staff nominate and vote for campers to receive our ‘Citizen of the Week’ or ‘Star Student’ award. It is a real honour to receive the award and goes to campers who are polite, enthusiastic, helpful, kind etc...
Last year 60 countries were represented by our campers... We beat that this year with 67! Our campers came from four continents and countries including the UK, Mexico, Ukraine, Taiwan, Turkmenistan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt!
There is no way we could even estimate how many memories were made this summer but we know it is a lot! Camp might be over for 2018 but our memories from the summer will last a lifetime!
