I have 2 teens (13 and 15) and trying to get organised for the summer! Me and my husband are working all summer and are looking for something to keep them entertained... I've been looking into residential summer camps but quite unsure which one is best etc. Has anyone sent their chiildren to a summer camp? Can you recommend one? I'm torn between Camp Beaumont, PGL, XUK camps...

Ahh, my kids went to XUK last summer, they are a fantastic! Kids came back singing their praises - they tried lots of new activities and are still in touch with their camp friends now.

We booked onto XUK activity but I think they have a couple of other options... hope this helps

yes, looked at XUK's website - they have good reviews, will look into this option a bit more

Very torn as unsure if my youngest will be totally happy staying away from home - how were your children? Was it their first time?

We sent ours to wickedly wonderful last summer as well as fellowship afloat and she is 10. First time away from home and she cried lots night before, cried on the way home as didn’t want to leave. They’ll be fine!

My DS went to a camp in scotland, pgl and XUK before - all very good, he preferred XUK because he made a lot from friends from it and better activities. I always recommend these type of experiences - gets them out of the house instead of being glued to the playstation!

Hey there!

If your kids like technology, you might like the camps we are launching this summer. Take a look!

thanks for this but looking for a residential camp and more multi-activity!
Bit confused with xuk, JUP123 - have your children only been to the activity one, or Excel? Can see they offer 3 different types on What did your kids prefer? Trying to finalise this all now
