About L&E World Camp

Discover the perfect adventure at our inspiring & nurturing overnight Summer Camp. We offer a unique experience for 8-15 year olds from around the world, packed with a huge and diverse range of activities.

Our Summer Camp 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 their communication 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 Camp…

“Happy Children Thrive”

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 transfers for a small extra cost.

Why are L&E World Camps Summer 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 river. 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.
