Camp Worksop

Xplore’s ultimate teenage sports summer camp for 12 to 16 year olds.

London: 3 hours

Located on the edge of the Sherwood Forest, is our largest and one of the longest standing boarding schools in the area. Renowned for its excellent sports facilities, fantastic activity provisions and all-round exciting atmosphere makes Camp Worksop one of the best language camps for social teenagers who love being active, outdoors and surrounded by others.

We are able to offer a varied and extensive multi-activity programme at Camp Worksop due to the number of students we have on site. This gives more activities to choose from each day than any other Xplore camp so there is always something to have a go at!

Worksop has the capacity to hold up to 300 students and is our largest residential centre over the summer. Campers will stay in 2 to 6 bedded rooms within the huge Manor House, which are furnished to a basic but comfortable standard. 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.


Imagine eating every meal inside the Great Hall of Hogwarts – that’s what mealtimes are like at Camp Worksop. Sit with friends on huge banquet tables and enjoy a selection of freshly prepared, nutritious food with both hot and cold options. Dietary requirements can be met when we are aware in advance.


At Camp Worksop, the activities available are endless and we are able to offer a varied and extensive multi-activity programme due to the number of teenagers we have on site.

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.
