Why choose a Residential Summer Camp in the UK?
Summer… the most awaited season of the year.
With thoughts of sunshine, ice cream on the beach and the long stretch of the school holidays, who can think of a better time?
For XUK Camps, summer is in the forefront of their minds throughout the year! XUK have been running summer camps for over 20 years – with two residential activity camps, an English language school and a multi-activity day camp in the UK, XUK are experts in the field.
USA is renowned for its summer camps – with such films including “The Parent Trap” representing everything summer camps stand for. As many people know, it is almost a ritual for American children to pack their bags and head off to their local summer camp for weeks of endless fun, adventure and action.
On the contrary, it is not so widespread news that the U.K also have outstanding summer camps for children from around the world. XUK speak on this matter and in particular answer the anticipated question – why should you choose a residential summer camp in the U.K?
The U.K is unique. Rich in history (from the breath-taking cathedrals to the beautiful wooded countryside – like no other), the U.K provides endless opportunities for adventure. Both XUK sites are based in the beautiful British countryside – one in Norfolk and another in Monmouth (Wales). Both summer camps scream adventure, with kayaking down the River Wye, exploring the caves at Symonds Yat and the ultimate battle of climbing the high ropes in Norfolk.
England and Wales are home to many sports – including cricket, rugby and football to name a few. What would an English summer camp be without a timetable bursting with sports and competition? XUK love sport and this is reflected in their philosophy and activities during the summer. Whilst traditional English sports are on offer, XUK also put great importance on experiencing new sports in their programme – such new activities include American Football, Baseball, Basketball and Lacrosse! In particular.
If the endless opportunities of adventure and sports in a UK summer camp is not for you – what about the fact the U.K is bursting with beautiful, quaint historical towns and cities that are waiting to be explored? XUK organise action-packed trips each week for children to get off campus and explore their surroundings! Such trips include visiting the historical city, Cambridge. Cambridge is home to one of the world’s most famous Universities, and of course, its beautiful River Cam which is where you will find people punting and relaxing. A day sightseeing and wandering around the cobbled streets and markets is enough to keep us wanting to come back!
As well as absorbing the local history, XUK also offer the opportunity to head to England’s capital city, London, for a day packed full of exploring, shopping and to see a West End show!
Whilst we are talking about the English culture, XUK rave about their international atmosphere on camp – children are able to learn about cultures from all over the world! During the summer, XUK is home to children from Spain, Italy, France, Saudi Arabia, Germany, China and more! There is nothing better than making lifelong friendships with friends from all over the world.
