Learn & Experience

Who are we?

The Ridgway Family started Learn & Experience in 2009.  They have overseen the growth of L&E; from just 20 children attending their first Summer Camp to having since hosted over 1000 children across the various L&E programmes.

Learn & Experience have a very clear vision. Creating experiences to bring together young people from around the world while keeping to a simple principle… “Happy Children Thrive”.
