AGED 3 to 16


Camp Xplode is all about getting back to nature and having fun with friends. Held at 3 exceptional venues across Yorkshire, our unique holiday day camps give children and young adults an exciting multi activity experience with the chance to enjoy loads of activities like team sports, craft, archery, games, drama and bushcraft to name a few.

Every day at Camp Xplode is bursting with adventure. We see even the shiest children come to life taking part in our camp days, picking up life-long skills like teamwork, leadership, self-confidence, communication and problem solving along the way.

You’ll find dates for our 2019 camps here. They get filled up quickly, so BOOK NOW to join the adventure!

Camp Xplode is completely unique. It’s a better alternative to most childcare – our adventurous day camps will not only keep your children entertained, but also teach them lifelong skills.

When children are in a natural, safe environment where they can totally be themselves, they’re instinctively more engaged. There are no screens or tech here, we prefer fresh air, fun & friendship.

 Our exciting camp experience is like no other. Days are spent getting stuck in to all sorts of activities such as team sports, games, bushcraft, drama and crafts.

Thoughts from our biggest (and littlest) fans

Don’t just take our word for it, take a look at some of our latest feedback.

“Every day is packed with creative and outdoor fun and the staff are so happy and enthusiastic.”


Olivia's Mum

I worked for Camp Xplode when I lived up North. It was ran with pure love, fun and passion for child-care. The director was the best director I’ve ever had, he was so supportive, easy going and always had the children and staffs best interests at heart.”


Previous staff member

I was a little concerned if my youngest daughter of 3 years would settle, as she is used to nursery, but she absolutely loved it. Both kids love it, and they can’t wait to go again.”



The Staff are great and he comes home tired, messy and with new skills, stories and friends- it’s exactly what holiday camp should be.”


James's Dad

The facilities are great. They have a access to a swimming pool, an outdoor bushcraft classroom, large grassed green and extensive outdoor hardcore play area for ball, running & bike riding. The Staff really make it though. My two tell they are all friendly, fun and kind.”
