Teens are young adults and at XUK we treat them as such. We build a programme around the freedom and choice that is essential to giving them independence and maintaining a relationship of trust and mutual respect.
We give our teens the flexibility to customise their programme and to help tailor make their perfect week at camp.
If you’re thinking about coming to summer camp you may be reading this yourself. If you have any questions please feel free to call us, we love to chat.
This activity may also count towards your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Residential Section, please check with your DofE Leader for suitability before booking
Teen (senior camp) benefits:
16 - 17 only:
The XUK Junior Camp is about having fun and experiencing all sorts of new things in an atmosphere that feels like home. Camp helps Juniors build confidence, gain some independence, and take part in some incredible new activities. Vitally, we never lose sight of their age. Many Juniors are away from home for the first time and need support, encouragement and supervision throughout their time at XUK.
In summary, the Junior group...
*Some 11 & 12 year olds will be put into the senior (teen) group. This split is made according to activities, numbers and bed spaces and not by request.
As an older teen and someone who's never been to a camp before, going to XUK was quite frightening. However, it’s one of the best decisions I've ever made. A very welcoming, humble, fun, connected camp. I enjoyed every second!
