Unfortunately global travel restrictions did not allow us to run our 2020 residential summer camps, however we did manage to run our localised UK day camps for English children and teens. During Summer 2020, we put into place incredible amounts of safety procedures to allow our camps to run safely and for parents to have peace of mind. With this prior experience of operating our camps in a COVID-secure environment, we can guarantee all our 2021 campers that we are safe, open and ‘good to go’.

Language Activity Camps

English Summer Camps for kids and teens
Our English summer camps or ‘language activity camps’ are the perfect place for 8 to 17 year olds to independently experience meeting and making new friends with other children and teenagers from around the world. For the past 7 years, we have consistently welcomed approximately 3,000 students to our camps each summer.

Having fun and stretching your abilities, no matter the activity is good for you!

Whether you are involved in our normal activities such as archery, climbing or watersports or

Cultural Immersion

Surrounding yourself with different nationalities and cultures gives you an invaluable awareness of others.

What is better than sightseeing! Discover London, and explore lesser known English cities and towns.

Social Interaction

Meeting and making new friends, not only teaches an appreciation of different cultures but also helps to develop a mutual respect and understanding for others.

Being part of a diverse international community at camp, in mixed nationality sessions builds self-confidence in communicating in English with others.

Frequently Asked Questions

An Xplore summer camp combines English language lessons and excursions to cities and towns such as London and Cambridge with either fun outdoor activities (language activity camps) or a course focused on a specific sport, hobby or interest (special interest camps).


The camps are held at large private schools where you sleep overnight in dormitories with others of the same age and gender.

Each camp is suited to a different age group. The age groups overlap slightly to give some choice, but you can expect the same high-quality activities and programme at every camp.

A typical day at camp is split into two sections, with the morning or afternoon spent in your English lessons you will spend the other half of the day taking part in a mixture of exciting adventure activities. The evening is reserved for evening entertainment where the whole camp comes together to participate in a variety of activities. Every Wednesday and Saturday is an excursion day where we visit lots of exciting places giving you the opportunity to shop, do some sight seeing and make memories with everyone else at camp.

You can see an overview of all our adventure activities here. We also offer lots of specialist camps which focus on specific interests, sports or hobbies - take a look at Our Camps.
