The venues are amazing, the tutors are magnificent, the parents are incredibly supportive and most importantly, the children are happy.
How do our Camps work?
The Format of the camp is very simple;
Residential Week: Sunday evening to Saturday morning

International students can attend our L&E English Course in the morning (unless they choose another course to join with the other English Children) and then will join with the rest of the camp for the rest of the day.
What Activities are available?
There are a choice 5 Themed Courses. (Activity Courses) Choose 2 (morning & afternoon) for each week.
L&E Experience (includes Adventure, Creative and Sports)
L&E Horse Riding
L&E Football with LUFC Foundation
L&E Cricket with ProCoach Yorkshire
There is a broad range of courses that will suit everyone. Our skilled tutors also take into account the dynamics of the group and adjust the course accordingly.
What ages can come to our Summer Camps?
8 – 14 year olds!
Being an L&E Camper is about having fun and experiencing all sorts of things in an atmosphere that feels like home. L&E help build confidence, gain some independence and take part in some incredible new activities. Vitally, we never lose sight of their age. Many Campers are away from home for the first time and need support, encouragement and supervision throughout their time with Learn & Experience.
All this is underpinned by a focus on safety, security and that unbeatable, friendly L&E atmosphere.
What’s Residential like?
Staying away from home is a real adventure but can be daunting so we try and make it as easy as possible…
The Schools that we use are very special places and many children and parents liken them to the magical Hogwarts School from Harry Potter.
Every child coming to camp can choose with whom they would like to share a dormitory. 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.
As you’d imagine, dorms come in all shapes and sizes. Dorms are divided be age and gender, so boys and girls only share with others in the same age group. Children will also bring their own duvets or sleeping bags to make them feel “at home”.
What happens at the weekends?
There will be some fantastic trips organised over the weekends including visits to the historic city of York, Leeds, local tourist attractions, trips in to Yorkshire Dales and Lake District.
What do you do in the evenings?
At our Residential Summer Schools the evenings can be seen as the best part. After tea the children will be involved in all sorts of different activities which changes each evening.
Ice Breaker Games, Murder Mysteries, Camp Fires, Quiz Night, Bin-Bag Fashion Shows, Talent Show Nights, Water Fight Championships, etc…….all sorts of fun!
What’s to eat?
There’s always plenty of homely cooked food. We cater for most diets and a cold salad bar is available at every meal time. As an International Camp we quite often ask the children for suggestions from their own country. Our chefs are always willing to try new things! Fresh Fruit is available all through the day. (Food not available for Day Camp – packed lunch to be provided)
How will my child get there?
Residential: You can bring your child personally to the school. On each Sunday evening (5pm-6pm) we have an Afternoon Tea or BBQ (depending on the weather) This is a great opportunity for Parents & Guardians to meet the staff and see when their children will be staying. Pickup is usually before 11am on the Saturday.
International: We can provide free airport transfers from Manchester & Leeds Airports on Sundays. Please be in contact with L&E to find out the appropriate times as we only have limited windows. Where possible we put parents from the same country in contact with each other so that students can arrange to travel together. Click here to find out more about Airport Transfers
Day: You can bring your child personally to the school every day. We have a breakfast club every morning from 8am. Pickup is before 6pm.
When do I need to book?
On each course we accept a maximum of 8 children who share the same mother tongue and we give priority to returning students. Because of this, places for some nationalities are fully booked 6-8 months in advance and sometimes earlier. You can check to see if a place is available by completing the first part of our booking form. We occasionally get cancellations so we operate a reserve list. If you need a visa this can take longer than expected so please allow plenty of time.
