Summer Language CampsEnglish, Experience, Activity

Xplore Summer Language Camps are all-inclusive, integrated English language courses suitable for individual students and student groups aged between 8 and 17 during the spring and summer school breaks. 

These programmes focus on students improving their English through being culturally integrated in a sociable and engaging environment taking part in some challenging activities, cultural excursions and interactive English lessons.

At each of our camps, we offer mixed ability English classes taught by our own teachers using our own syllabus offering an Anglia Examination at the end of our students stay.

Anglia Examinations operates worldwide, are internationally recognised and comparable against other EFL examination bodies such as Cambridge, TOEFL and IELTS. (Please note, structured EFL lessons are not part of our US homestay immersion programmes).

2020 Programmes

Available across England, USA and Germany each language camp is suited to a specific age range so that students of a similar age and English ability can meet one another, sharing their experiences and development.

English Summer Camps in England and Germany

In England and Germany, our summer language camps are based at large residential venues, with accommodation, sports and activity facilities and dining on-site, closely located near exciting excursion destinations. All students of all nationalities follow the same programme, participating in the same activities, English lessons and excursions and share their experience.

Improve English in the USA

In the USA, we operate an Xplore-run summer camp in Asheville, North Carolina that students attend whilst staying with a local host family, or alternatively students can completely immerse themselves in a homestay experience with a family in North Carolina, Colorado or Washington.

English Plus Camps

Students can now combine their summer language camp with their favourite sport, hobby or even something completely new! Our English Plus camps allow students to participate in sessions dedicated to developing a sport or skill alongside their English language lessons.

We promote being active at camp through our standard programme of adventure activities in addition to our language lessons as it helps to support learning English in a relaxed and unpressured environment. With English Plus courses, instead of participating in the multi-activity programme, students can develop or learn new skills in their favourite sport or interest area.

Additional Information

Accommodation: Residential or Host Family

Residential camps offer everything on-site whilst host family programmes offer an authentic experience of family life – and we offer both with our language activity camps.

Depending on your student’s requirements, we can support you in finding the right summer language camp programme – whether it be attending a camp with other students from around the world, staying in shared rooms and participating in a shared programme of activities and English or totally immersing themselves in host family life with no structured activities, or even something in between, with the experience of a host family but organised camp activities to participate in.

English Camps for Junior students

It’s proven that children are much more likely to excel at learning a second language from a younger age.

We also find that by opening up the opportunity to travel, experience and explore the world to younger children, we allow them to develop a wider appreciation for different cultures plus develops stronger independence and self-confidence from a younger age.

Our Summer Language Camps accept children from 8 years old, with smaller campus sizes, fun and interactive lesson structure and smaller supervision ratios for activities and excursions – we provide a safe and supportive environment where they can have fun as they learn.

Teen Summer Abroad Programmes

Travelling abroad during the school holidays can really support and develop teenagers’ social skills, confidence and of course language skills.

We know that for 14 to 17 year olds, the main focus is having an independent holiday to meet new friends and explore new cities having fun along the way – and so we have developed our camps to offer exactly that, whilst improving their English in a fun and unpressured environment.

Most of our camps offer a combined programme of structured ESL lessons, challenging activities and excursions, however in the USA, we also offer homestay accommodation, which is perfect for students who are more confident with their English language skills and are looking for an opportunity to be completely immersed in the culture.

Why Choose Xplore?

Our integrated language activity camps are operated and delivered by our staff, teachers and Xplore-recruited host families. Our aim for our language activity camps is to help students meet like minded friends from around the world, developing their respect, understanding and appreciation for different cultures, therefore, integration is key.
