Care and Supervision
Our Camp Leaders are responsible for the pastoral care of all those in our care and ensure that everyone is sleeping well, eating well, joining in, making friends and having a great time. During free time, our teenagers are able to explore the campus with friends, whilst being supervised by their house parents. Being located in a town, we offer campers the ability to go off-site as an alternative to an activity session; however a member of Xplore staff will always accompany them.
Our camps are available to children from all over the world. Integration and immersion is central to how we operate as an organisation, and by encouraging lots of social interaction between different cultures and creating a diverse international community at camp, it can really develop every child’s self-confidence in communicating with others.
