Below is a further update on XUK 2021 as we continue to navigate our way through Covid-19.

1. RESIDENTIAL CAMPS

Nick and Richard have made the decision to run XUK Activity over Summer 2021.

This decision is based heavily on the UK Government Roadmap - 'the government hopes to be in a position to remove all legal limits on social contact' on 21st June.

XUK Activity will only run if there are no or minimal restrictions in place. If the government change their roadmap or certain restrictions are in place, we may have to cancel the camp at late notice. If XUK cancels camp, all deposits / payments will be credited or paid back in full.

Due to travel restrictions and quarantine requirements, XUK is discouraging bookings from children who will be travelling to the UK from overseas. We hope this will change nearer the time.

We encourage all families who are booking not to spend money on non-refundable travel or other related costs in case XUK has to be cancelled.

We are really excited to be running our residential camp in 2021. Feel free to contact us with any questions. You will be able to book online very shortly.

Let's make Summer 2021, together, the most memorable yet.

2. DAY CAMPS

Bookings are now open for Summer. We hope to run a near to normal camp but if this is not possible we will run our 'Covid-secure' camp as per Summer 2020 and Easter 2021.

Of course, if we have to cancel due to government restrictions, anyone that books will receive a refund / credit (your choice).

3. ONLINE ENGLISH LESSONS

We continue to run our Online English School, with private and group lessons for children (and adults). If you want to improve your English please contact us to arrange lessons at a time to suit you.

4. STAFF

Applications for Summer jobs will be opening in the next few weeks. We expect very few vacancies for residential roles. Please watch this space.

5. FREE ONLINE ACTIVITIES

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

Below is a further update on XUK as we continue to navigate our way through Covid-19.

1. DAY CAMPS

Bookings are now open for our Easter & Summer day camps. We hope and expect to run these camps in a similar way to Summer 2020.

At present government guidelines include that children can attend our care if it is “reasonably necessary to enable their parents and carers to work, search for work, undertake education or training, or attend a medical appointment or address a medical need, or attend a support group”.

Of course, if we have to cancel due to government restrictions, anyone that books will receive a refund / credit (your choice).

2. RESIDENTIAL CAMPS

At present the roadmap from the British government indicates it may be possible to run this summer. However, there are still many unknown barriers including implications of any quarantine, distancing requirements, testing, travel restrictions etc.

We hope to be making a decision on whether our camps will run over the next couple of weeks. We will of course update you as soon as we have more information.

3. ONLINE ENGLISH LESSONS

We continue to run our Online English School, with private and group lessons for children (and adults). If you want to improve your English please contact us to arrange lessons at a time to suit you.

4. STAFF

Applications are open for staff at our Easter Day camps though we are only now looking for Lead Playworkers. You can apply here. Our residential staff, unfortunately, will have to wait until we have made a decision on whether these will run.

5. FREE ONLINE ACTIVITIES

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

As we all continue to navigate our way through Covid-19, below is an update for the year ahead at XUK…

1. DAY CAMPS

Bookings are now open for our Easter & Summer day camps. We hope and expect to run these camps in a similar way to Summer 2020. Of course, if we have to cancel due to government restrictions anyone that books will receive a refund / credit (your choice).

2. RESIDENTIAL CAMPS

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. We will of course update you as soon as we have more information.

3. ONLINE ENGLISH LESSONS

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.

4. STAFF

Applications are open 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.

5. FREE ONLINE ACTIVITIES

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.

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…

1. DAY CAMPS

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.

2. RESIDENTIAL CAMPS

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.
