We always have separate quarters for boys and girls and where possible place campers of a similar age in a room together. If you have any special requirements or would like to request to share with a friend, we will try to accommodate you, just let us know in advance.

Spend meal times with new friends in the huge dining hall where a selection of freshly cooked food is served at all mealtimes. Both hot and cold options are available in a wide range of cuisines and dietary requirements can be met when we are aware in advance.

Activities

Our multi-activity programme at Camp  Pangbourne, allows our campers to experience a true summer camp experience, taking part in lots of outdoor challenging activities.

Camp Pangbourne really does have everything – from woodland for climbing and bushcraft, to tennis courts, fields for sports and an outdoor swimming pool. In the evenings, there is always a night of entertainment planned, from campfires to discos, talent shows and fair nights.

Excursions

During the 2-week programme, our staff will take all our campers on 3 organised day trip excursions. These fully supervised trips are the perfect way to spend the day off-campus with new friends – from day trips to big cities such London or Oxford to local towns like Windsor and Newbury.

(3 excursions during 2-week programme – Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday)

Care and Supervision

Our Camp Leaders are responsible for the pastoral care of all those in our care and ensure that everyone is sleeping well, eating well, joining in, making friends and having a great time. During free time, our teenagers are able to explore the campus with friends, whilst being supervised by their house parents.

Being located in a town, we offer campers the ability to go off-site as an alternative to an activity session; however a member of Xplore staff will always accompany them.

International Camp

Our camps are available to children from all over the world. Integration and immersion is central to how we operate as an organisation, and by encouraging lots of social interaction between different cultures and creating a diverse international community at camp, it can really develop every child’s self-confidence in communicating with others.
