Residential Camps

XUK Activity offers a fabulous range of activities, trips & fun for kids & teens in an idyllic venue in the beautiful English countryside.

Day Camps

Our Day Camps are fun & friendly, providing the perfect environment for every child to thrive doing the activity they love most!

English School

XUK English offers exceptional quality English language tuition, exciting activities and valuable trips all at a reasonable price.

Our London day camps and clubs (3-13), UK summer residential kids and teen camp (6-17) & Summer Language School (10-17) offer incredible value for money. There's no better way to spend a half term, Easter or summer school holiday than with Mini Minors, Cross Keys and XUK, the experts at running camps.

Residential Summer Camp

XUK offers multi-activities from 6 – 17 years old. Children and teens spend between one & six weeks of their summer holidays at XUK.

Staying in the beautiful grounds of 'The New Eccles Hall School', your child will enjoy a range of adventurous, creative and lively activities as well as ‘off-site’ day trips to Cambridge, Bury St. Edmunds or Norwich. Our ‘optional extras’ allow each family to tailor make their summer camp experience with their choice of activities!

An enthusiastic and dynamic staff team makes XUK an exceptional summer residential holiday camp. With a constant flow of innovative ideas and strong sense of fun they make sure each child and every teen has the best summer holiday ever!

Here are a few reasons why we believe we are the best camp in the UK:

  • Our last OFSTED inspection rated us as an 'outstanding' summer camp provider.
  • Breakfast options include continental and traditional cooked. Lunch and dinner always include: A wholesome main meal, a vegetarian main meal option, salad/pasta bar, tasty dessert & fresh fruit.
  • Every child coming to camp can choose with whom they’d like to share a dormitory/bunk room. Many of our children at camp come alone, so we make a special effort to make sure we put each individual in a friendly and fun dorm with similar aged children.
  • Every week, our staff vote for the camper who embodies everything we love about XUK. The ‘Citizen of the Week’ will be helpful, fun, caring and enthusiastic all week long. If your child wins we’ll invite them back to summer camp next year for one week free of charge!
  • Our amazing set of activities change each week keeping it fresh for those who are staying for more than one.
  • There are a number of options for you and your children to get to camp. These are designed with you and flexibility in mind!
  • There is a language option if you want your child to improve their English speaking skills. This is done with qualified teachers and we still fit in loads of fun activities after the language lessons so each child and teen can relax, unwind and enjoy their summer.
  • We constantly review our courses to ensure they are fresh, improving and amongst the best summer camps in the UK

If you are from abroad, we understand why you are sending your child or teen to XUK. You want them to have fun and be safe in a different country, experiencing different activities and tasting the English culture. You may also want them to improve their English. In the past few years we have concentrated in making XUK an international brand and this culminates in having a diverse XUK where children can meet those from different areas and backgrounds.

English Language School

We also offer a 1 - 5 week residential English Language Summer School. This is a Course for 10-17 year-olds during the school summer holidays and can be booked weekly. We are known in the UK and all over the world for our friendly staff.

Kids and teens have been attending our summer vacation clubs, camps and schools for many years. Children learn, have fun, develop, have new experiences and meet new friends. Our summer language school in Ipswich, England meets the needs of 10-17 year old children wanting to learn and improve their English at the same time as having a most wonderful UK experience.

With lessons in the mornings and activities in the afternoons, XUK English gives the perfect blend for your child to get the most out of their summer school. Also enjoy the day trips to London and Cambridge - all included in the competitive price.
