Xplore’s original camp – action, adventure and lots of activities, ideal for campers aged 11 to 15.
Cambridge: 50 minutes
London: 2 hours
Camp Finborough is the original Xplore activity camp, where we began over 30 years ago.
The grounds of the school are impressive with acres of land and everything you could need for the ultimate outdoor adventure camp, including woodland containing our 12-metre high climbing and abseiling tower, a river for kayaking and raft building and one super quad biking track.
Just across the river, there is more woodland where we hold our bush craft sessions and evening campfires where everyone comes together to sing songs and roast marshmallows – a great way to spend your summer holidays!
Transfers and Entrance Fees are included in the price.

Getting to Camp
Please ensure to drop off after 3pm and pick up on departure is after breakfast at 10am
We can provide transfers from and to London Heathrow International Airport (LHR) on both arrival and departure dates – this will incur an additional charge of £25 each way.
Our summer accommodation is located in the main school building, which has recently been refurbished and contains dorm rooms that can sleep 4 to 6.
We always have separate quarters for boys and girls and try where possible to put children of a similar age in a room together.
If we 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.
At Camp Finborough there is a large dining hall, serving three nutritional meals a day by friendly kitchen staff.
There is always plenty of choice with a selection of cuisines available and options for both hot and cold buffet food.
Our Camp Leaders eat their meals at the same time as campers to make sure everyone has had enough food and eating healthily. Dietary requirements can be met when we are aware in advance.
Camp Finborough is the ultimate adventurous camp experience – the activities on offer are endless and they go a long way in supporting children’s social development in a really fun and active way!
The programme is varied, with a selection of activity sessions on offer for everyone all designed to encourage team building, listening and communication.
In addition to crate climbing, quad biking, games and sports, Camp Finborough also has a river for water-based activities such as kayaking, canoeing and raft building and two woodland areas for climbing, abseiling, bush craft, and campfires!
During the week, our staff will take all our campers on an organised day trip excursion.
This fully supervised trip is the perfect way to spend the day off-campus with new friends – from day trips to big cities such London, Cambridge or Norwich to having a wild time on all the rides at the local theme park; Pleasurewood Hills.
(1 excursion during 1-week programme – Wednesday. 3 excursions during 2-week programme – Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday)
Care and Supervision
Camp Finborough is surrounded by countryside so our pre-teen campers will feel right at home with everything they need on-site.
Xplore Camp Leaders are responsible for the pastoral care of all the children in our care and ensure that each child is sleeping well, eating well, joining in, making friends and having a great time.
During free time, children are able to play and explore the campus with friends, whilst being supervised by their house parents.
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.
