We are very proud of the international atmosphere we have at all three of our residential summer camps. Every summer, campers travel from around the UK, Europe and wider world to experience the summer of a lifetime with us. The diversity between our campers encourages them to broaden with world views and ways of thinking whilst experience different cultures, religious and backgrounds first hand. International friendships started at camp remain strong throughout the year. We often hear lovely stories and receive pictures from campers who have been reunited outside of camp.

“The best part was all the people they met from many different backgrounds.”

3. Rated Outstanding by Ofsted and Accredited by the British Accreditation Council

When you are leaving your children in other people’s hands, as parents and careers, you need more than just us telling you how great our camps are. Therefore we are regulated by Ofsted at XUK Activity & XUK English and accredited by the British Accreditation Council at XUK Excel. Both Ofsted and the BAC recognise that safety is our number one priority.

“Policies are exceptionally detailed in scope, especially the safeguarding policy. All staff have the opportunity to contribute to policy review.”

4. Amazing staff team

Every single member of our staff team has been through a thorough recruitment process from a lengthy application form, to three-hour group interview and background & reference checks. Every year, we begin our recruitment in November so there is no rush to find talented, hardworking staff.

Each summer, around 50% of our staff team return for another year of fun at XUK Camps. Our team are so much more than just part of our ratios – we have made lots of great friendships over the years and always look forward to the next staff reunion!
