Pangbourne Summer Camp Xplore

It was the best camp ever!  My favourite activities were quad biking and art.  There are so many things to do: tennis, crate climbing, indoor hockey, swimming and something called 'Leap of Faith' which involves climbing a long pole and at the top, you jump off a trapeze then you jump to the ground - I can't wait to go back next year!

Every summer, Pangbourne opens its doors to a children's summer activity camp and also a language school camp, both of which are run by the company Xplore. Xplore has run children's holiday camps and residential camps at Pangbourne for many years and has nearly 30 years of experience in catering for children’s holiday camps.

The Xplore Activity Camp at Pangbourne is a day camp for children aged six to 14 years old and runs from Monday to Friday. Led by a young and energetic team of camp leaders, the children get to experience a multitude of activities with the 230 acres of beautiful grounds the College has to offer.  The children participate in activities such as ropes courses, archery, quadbiking, arts and crafts, and regular swimming sessions in the College’s swimming pool.

The holiday camp is focused on energetic, outdoor activities.  The children even eat their lunch under trees in the Walled Garden.  The children are split into age specific groups and are looked after by qualified instructors who are experienced in providing a fun filled programme of games.

The day camp, which is Ofsted registered, runs from July 20 - August 14. Parents of Pangbourne students are entitled to a discount and Childcare Vouchers can be accepted as payment.


The Xplore Language programme is a residential English language camp at Pangbourne for 15-17-year-olds which runs from Sunday to Saturday for two or three week stays. Intensive English courses and A Level study preparations are delivered for international students. Classes consist of grammar, conversation, English literature, debates, presentations, business grammar and even colloquial terms.

The international students on the Xplore Language programme also have the opportunity to go on trips to places such as London, Oxford, Bournemouth and Cardiff. They can take advantage of the plentiful sporting facilities available at Pangbourne and participate in Xplore Language clubs such as Fashion Design, Dance and Fitness, British Sports, Survival Skills and Multimedia.

The residential English camp at Pangbourne runs from July 5 - August 15.
