Are there summer camps in London? 


When people think about London, they think of the big metropolis: tall buildings, concrete walls, and the sluggish brown oozing Thames. But, despite the fact that this is a big and exciting city, there are lots of awesome urban summer camps to help children learn over the summer

We need to dispel the idea that a summer camp is like the Duke of Edinburgh where people camp in a soggy field. 🏕️ Many summer camps happen on school grounds when the local kids are all away for the summer break. 

London summer camps are great for parents who need to work but want to provide a fun summer learning experience for their kids over the summer. 

You have options from residential camps (where the kids sleep over at the camp) 🛌 or day camps (where you drop them off in the morning and pick them up in the evening). 


How much does a summer camp cost in London? 


As most summer camps in London are educational, they can cost quite a lot of money. 💸 In today’s society, in order to run a summer camp for kids, the facilitator needs qualifications, certificates, and insurance – all of which can cost quite a bit of money.  

On the lower end of the budget, you will find ‘camps’ that are essentially just a glorified baby-sitting service which will keep your children out of your hair. On the top end of the spectrum, you’ll find camps which immerse your child in learning: whether it is drama, drone-technology, or skating, there are experts out there waiting for you to sign up! 

But what is the most popular summer camp in London? What is the most expensive summer camp in London? What’s the cheapest summer camp in London? Read through our breakdown of these five summer camps to learn more…
