Learn & Experience

World Camps

Having a mix of children from around the world is one of the reasons that L&E World Camps are so special.

About L&E World Camps

It’s hard to sum up what we offer at L&E World Camps on a website page… We could start by telling you that we offer a unique cultural experience for  8-15 year olds from around the world, packed with a huge and diverse range of activities. We could add that we use the best venues in the UK and Canada with incredible facilities. But really, that wouldn’t be the half of it…

L&E World Camps allow young people to experience and learn life skills while expert and empathetic guidance are provided.  All whilst making friendships that span the globe along the way.  With L&E, it is especially relevant that young people develop their independence, their confidence and language skills. Again and again, in their own words, they tell us they’ve had the time of their lives.

We have a very simple ethos at L&E World Camps…

Adventure, Sport & Creative activities

The children have a choice from a huge variety of activity options each session (morning & afternoon). There will always be Adventure, Sport and Creative options. We pride ourselves on the high standard of tuition and the passion we bring to each.

L&E Extras

Our L&E Extra options are 12 hour specialist coaching courses that allow the time to develop the understanding of the skill.  L&E Horse Riding, Tennis Academy, L&E Elite Football & Performing Arts are available.

English Language Lessons and our incredible Young Global Leaders & Life Skills Course (including YGL Wilderness Experience) are also available

Evenings Activities

Every day between 1700 – 1800 we always offer the children a chance to relax with some free time in our heated swimming pool or our on-site lake.  We offer a full sleepaway experience on our World Camps. This means we can carry on the fun into the evening and we have a special activity every night.  Our evening activities include:

  • Ice Breaker Games
  • Camp Fire Nights
  • Movie Nights
  • Talent Shows
  • Trivia Competitions
  • Water Fight Championships
  • Theme Nights + Lots more…

Sleepaway Experience

When children pack their bags for an adventure with us, we like to think they’ll return with much more than just their belongings. We set out to inspire them, and that starts from the minute they arrive. We always use venues with magnificent architecture which hints at some of the magic ahead.  Once the camp gets underway, everything buzzes into life with L&E energy. Children return from their adventures with more confidencenew friendshipsnew skills and broader horizons, but that doesn’t mean the first steps of a sleep away stay aren’t sometimes a bit daunting.

On the first evening families are all invited for a welcome BBQ/Afternoon Tea, when they drop off their children. This gives them a chance to meet the team and see the facilities their children will enjoy during their stay with us.  Alternatively, we can also arrange airport, train station and ferry terminal transfers for a small extra cost.

Facilities

Our facilities are the backdrop for your child’s adventure with us so we make sure it soon becomes home from home – everything from the delicious food to where they sleep. Children can bring their own duvets with them if they want and we carefully choose who will stay in which homely dormitory, according to age and personality (we will always separate nationalities to encourage English being spoken) – boys and girls are always separate.


What happens at the weekend?

Weekends can be seen as your bonus!! It’s a time to relax a little and spend more time with your new friends. There will be some fantastic trips organised over the weekends. (Excursions change depending on which camp and which dates – see individual camps and weeks for details!)

Safety

Welfare and pastoral care are our top priorities, with a huge emphasis on safety, security and the happiness of the children. Our caring and experienced World Camp team are on site 24 hours a day. They have each been chosen for their ability to communicate with children and their commitment to ensuring that each child has a fantastic learning adventure with us.  Also, we have an on-call, medically trained matron available at all times.  All our staff have had Criminal checks.

Why are L&E World Camps different?

The essence of World Camps is so many things to so many different children. There’s no single way to pin it down. It’s the laugh between new friends from different countries, sharing a joke. It’s the quiet linking of arms as life-long friendships are forged. It’s the look of pride beaming from the face of someone who’s met a challenge head-on and triumphed. It’s the sound of easy, satisfied silence, returning tired-out from a day of physical activity. It’s the sound of fast chatter on the phone as someone can’t wait to tell home what they’ve achieved. It’s the exhilarated shouts after abseiling down a cliff. It’s the splash in the lake. It’s the sound of voices, creating, working towards a goal together. It’s the wood-smoke smell of the campfire and of slowly-toasting marshmallows, after another jam-packed day.

  • A maximum of 80 residential children each week (Meaning we can get to know each child really well)
  • High level of interaction from tutors  (Our policy is 1:5 Staff to Child Ratio)
  • A personal service like no other Summer Camp can offer
  • We really do care about each individual
  • A large proportion of the children will be native English speakers  which means English is spoken socially all the time (the best way to learn!)
  • We limit large groups of one nationality so that we have a great balance at camp.

A: Be kind, be kind, be kind

"The reliability in your way of working with the children. Year after year the children look forward to spending weeks with you and you keep surprising them. They are more confident and they feel great experiencing the L&E factor and talking in English" Isabel, Spain (Pablo and Cristina’s mum)
