About L&E World Camps

It’s hard to sum up what we offer at a L&E World Camp 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 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.  As a result making friendships that span the globe along the way.  With L&E, it is especially relevant that young people develop their English language skills, independence and their confidence.  Again and again, in their own words, they tell us they’ve had the time of their lives.  “Testimonials”

We have a belief that everyone who attends an L&E World Camp are coming as Young Global Leaders in-training however, we do have a specialised YGL & Life Skills course available for our older children (13-15).

Average Day at L&E

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 confidence, new friendships, new 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 and train station 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 (sample menu) to where they sleep. Children can bring their own duvets with them 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.

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 our DBS cleared.

Why are L&E World Camps different?

The essence of a World Camp 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 pool. 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.
