Country

On the outskirts of Berlin, on a beautiful university campus offering both security, fantastic infrastructure and a plethora of things to do, this summer German language camp is a great choice for younger kids and first-time language travellers. The campus is located on the edge of Lake Zeuthen and attracts kids from all over the world as well as Germans kids coming to take English classes.
After the German classes everyone is well occupied with a large variety of sports and activities on offer, as well as visits and excursions. You can even do extra sailing or tennis if you'd like to. There's something for everyone. And with a maximum number of 120 participants it's not so big that you'll get lost in the crowd. 
The camp has been really well-thought out to make sure that kids are busy learning and having fun as much as possible. Safety is paramount and made easier by the fact that everyone and everything is in one place including meals and accommodation.

German classes

The classes are international with kids coming from everywhere, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, Italy some examples. Maximum 12 in a class, based on level and age - everyone gets tested the first day means a high level of personal attention. Lessons are Monday-Friday 3x45 minutes per day or 15 lessons per week. Children are of course, encouraged to use German outside the classroom during the activities etc.

Excursions

There are two completed accompanied excursions per week giving the students a chance to discover Berlin and the region a little. (one full day, one half-day) They are designed to be fun with the kids in mind, and also give the students a chance to get to know each other better and make new friends.
