2019 marked our fourth summer of running XUK Excel, our elective activity camp. It was another action packed, successful summer. We had the perfect mix of returning campers and new faces who quickly made XUK Excel their summer home! The five weeks went so quickly – every day was filled with great activities, memory making and developing friendships.
Every year, we send our campers families a questionnaire to find out what they loved about our elective activity camp and what they would like us to improve to make next summer the best year yet. Here’s what they said...
As we are an elective activity camp, our campers choose a focus for each week. This summer, campers could choose between Water & Forest Adventure, Sport, Creative Arts and Media. We received lots of feedback for all of our electives including...
“My kids really appreciated the variety of activities proposed.”
“My child learnt a lot of new skills.”
92% of staff rated our staff as good or excellent. One family said: “The team were outstanding in their approach. The leaders were brilliant at adapting to my children and treating them like young adults.”
We found from our feedback that 40% of our campers have attended other summer camps before. Parents told us that XUK Excel was better because:
“Lots of activities and great attention to everything from food to sports.”
“The food was MUCH better.”
“The facilities were much more modern.”
As well as this, 95% of parents would recommend XUK Excel summer camp to a friend.
We are very pleased with our feedback and would love to share some additional comments we have received from parents:
“Excellent location, small organisation, international but also English children (very important point), smart staff, excellent activities.”
“Its only 6 weeks on but they still talk in glowing terms about the experience and the friends that they made.”
“My daughter was at XUK Excel for a week she said that everyday there were different activities, which she enjoyed.”
“XUK is everything a kids camp should be - you should be proud of what you have achieved.”
A huge thank you to all of the families who completed our 2019 questionnaires. We have really enjoyed reading through your feedback and look forward to making things even better in 2020! Watch this space...
