Tell us about your favourite memory from camp

In 2013, when I did Jacob’s ladder and went all the way to the top!

If you could be Richard for a day what would you do to XUK?

I’d let the kids choose all their activities for the day

Victoria even shared with us her earliest memory of XUK and told us this…

I remember the first time I went, I was the youngest and smallest at camp and was playing a game with my big sister Jessica who is five years older than me. Our group leader Adam organised it, and we had to put a football between our legs and run with it. As I was so small, compared to the ball, I struggled and kept dropping the ball. I remember Adam calling me “Mini Mevel” and he kept encouraging me. That was great!

Thanks so much Mini Mevel. We can't wait to see you over Summer 2014...
