It’s not all change – although we will be at a different location, XUK Activity will still be our multi activity camp, where all campers will take part in a range of activities, giving them a brilliant all-rounder experience. From Adventure to Sport and the Arts to Water Sports, our kids and teenagers will have a varied timetable in the mornings.

Afternoon sessions will work differently, after running successful choice sessions each summer, we want our campers to be able to choose all their activities every afternoon, to do what they want to do!

Every evening will finish in the same way as before with a spectacular evening activity! And of course, each week will end with our famous Saturday Talent Show & Disco!

In order to run our wonderful activities, we need our staff team. There will be plenty of returning faces among our team, who are already looking forward to welcoming you back to XUK Activity for another cracking summer!

The Wednesday trip will still provide plenty of opportunities for campers to soak up British culture, sight see and do a spot of shopping. We will now be visiting the university city of Oxford, the medieval market town and Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford upon Avon and Warwick, a gorgeous county town, home to Warwick Castle.

We will continue to offer our fun, interactive English lessons, delivered by our qualified teachers. These will always take place in the afternoons, ensuring that campers opting into these do not miss our mornings of multi activities.

“Will you still be offering other optional extras?” we hear you ask... Yes, we will! We have kept some the same and will be changing things up too. For 2018 we will have the following on offer: Theme Park trip to Drayton Manor for all of our thrill-seeking campers, a trip to an Aqua Park – something a bit different but extremely fun in the water our famous London trip – a day of sightseeing, shopping and a West End show and a trip to have a jam packed afternoon of Go Karting, Karting simulator and Laser Quest!

As our camp location is changing geographically, we are making a couple of positive changes to our transfer service. St Pancras will still remain as our meeting point in central London and Heathrow airport will welcome campers from around the world. We will also be offering a transfer service from Birmingham airport, an excellent airport, with flights arriving and departing from around the world as well as Cardiff airport.

And finally, after another successful year, our LIT (Leader in Training) programme, will continue to run for our oldest teenagers. LIT is a fantastic way to get a taste of what it is like to be part of our staff team, the opportunities to plan and deliver activities, work as a team and develop interpersonal skills.
