January update

5th January 2021

Nick and I wish all our XUK family a happy, peaceful and safe new year.

It has been a difficult 2020 for all but there is hope ahead and if we stay patient and look after each other then hopefully we can get back to our normal lives as soon as possible.

We want to take this opportunity to give an update on our thoughts for this coming year ahead at XUK…


We hope and think that we will be able to run the day camps over Easter and Summer. We aim to open bookings very soon so please keep an eye our on our bookings page.


We are still unsure if we will be able to run this summer. Due to the Covid restrictions currently in place, it is still not legal to run residential camps in the UK. Not only do we need this restriction to be lifted, but there are also many other barriers, including implications of any quarantine, distancing requirements, travel restrictions etc. However, we are presently discussing the viability of opening bookings soon to give us every chance of running a successful camp over summer. We will of course update you as soon as we have more information.


We continue to run our Online English School, with private and group lessons for children (and adults). Our XUK teachers are all qualified, experienced and safe to work with children.


We will be opening applications soon for staff at our Easter Day camps. If you wish to work over Easter please apply here. Our residential staff, unfortunately, will have to wait until we have made a decision on whether these will run.


We are running regular online activities, including baking, quizzes & life skills. These are completely free and the focus is on having fun and learning new skills.

We will continue to keep you updated with any changes.

Very best wishes

Nick and Richard Bernstein, XUK Directors
