Our interviewing season begun in January, so we have already employed lots of wonderful people to work this Easter and summer.

It’s quite tricky getting an interview with us as we are only looking for the best staff team...

Interviewees will complete a range of tasks during the morning, including delivering a short activity or presentation to show off their skills.

Easter Day Camp

There are just over two weeks to go until our Easter Day Camp starts. We will be providing lots of local children from North London with two weeks of fun and games. Keep your fingers crossed for a bit of sunshine, we love to spend as much time as possible outside!

The boring, but important admin

If you’re coming to our residential camps, you would have seen on your CampMinder account that our Transport form is now live. It won’t be long until our Health form is also available for you to complete – it is essential that every single camper has this completed before attending both our day and residential camps even if they do not take any medication and have a clear medical history. Our team in the office really appreciate it when these are completed sooner rather than later so we don’t have to chase families!

We will also be sending out an email soon to remind you that your balance is due by 1st May and how to pay this.

Answering Questions

As we get closer to camp and families start thinking about packing and the logistics of camp, questions start to arise. We have lots of information on our website including the ‘Already Booked?’ page and a the ‘Kit List’ as well as ‘Frequently Asked Questions’. If you cannot find the answer you are looking for, please get in touch, we love speaking to families. Whether it is your first time or fifth time attending our camps, we are here to help and answer your questions.

Equipment Shopping

Before each summer begins, we have a huge shopping list for each camp. From craft equipment to staff bags and glue sticks to raft building equipment it all ends up on one big spreadsheet. We get very excited on delivery days. Let us know if you have any great ideas for new activities and we might add some of those ideas to our shopping list!

There you have it, some of thing exciting things that will be happening in the XUK Camps HQ between now and our summer camps beginning...
