World Camps & Teen Travel 2020 Cancelled

It is with great regret that I have to announce the cancellation of our World Camps and Teen Travel programmes for the remainder of 2020.

We have been monitoring the situation very closely to give ourselves every opportunity to provide a special L&E summer as we have done for the past 10 years.  However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that this will not be possible.  We have taken into consideration advice from all relevant Governments, the World Heath Organisation (WHO) and local health authorities and have made this decision based on the health and safety of all children and staff attending our programmes.

It is not clear what the possibility of international travel will be and social distancing seems certain to be in place for a significant period of time which would make it nearly impossible to justify the experiences we offer.  

We are devastated that we won’t be able to see all the children’s faces this year.  We are however, so thankful for the support that our L&E families have shown us over the past weeks.  It really has meant a lot to us.

For all those families who booked for this summer we will do everything we can to make it a stress free process.  We are offering 2 options:

  1. A full credit to be used for any future programme plus a 25% discount for any further programme.  The credit can be transferred from camps to travel tours and vice versa. (World Camp UK & World Camp Canada plus UK, European and North American Winter and Summer, Spring Teen Travel tours).  
  2. A full refund.

I’m sure you are aware we are a small family company that has significant overheads to survive year to year.  Therefore, to refund all our 2020 fees will be serious burden.  We will of course honour all requests for a full refund but it may take time for us to get all the funding in place.

I therefore ask you to be patient and to be reassured that we are working hard to put in place the appropriate measures.

For those people who have already booked flights I am so sorry and will be happy to provide any personal letters of cancellation if it helps with the cancellation policy of the airline.

As you will be aware we have been offering Virtual experiences online over the past month and will continue to expand this service.  We are not making any money from this venture but wanted to offer our families something meaningful during this difficult time.  

We are currently working on our summer virtual programme and will keep you updated with developments.

I wish you all my warmest wishes and hope that you are safe and healthy.

With my Sincerest Regards,

Sam Ridgway & The L&E Team
