Our language courses help kids and teens get ahead

Combining language learning with fun free time and sports activities: For over 20 years, this has been the secret to the success of our popular Berlitz holiday camps. In our camps 7- to 17-year-olds have fun and stay active while learning English, French, German or Spanish. From the time they get up until they go to bed, the participants are immersed in the target language – learning by doing.

  • From social media workshops to soccer games: more than 100 different activities and types of sports

Our team of camp counselors is there for the participants all day, teaching in the mornings, arranging activities in the afternoons and evenings, and acting on many of the ideas with the campers.

These counselors come from different countries around the world and are native speakers of the camp language. They always share interesting aspects of their cultures as well.

The experienced team receives regular professional training from us in teaching languages to children and young people. Each holiday camp also has a supervising camp director who can speak German in case of an emergency.

Our program is developed individually by the team depending on the camp, activity, participants, and weather.

In the mornings there is language instruction in two blocks from 9:00 to 10:30 and from 10:45 to 12:15. The recreational activities start at 2 p.m., and at 5:30 p.m. everyone gathers for dinner. Later in the evening, the schedule includes another activity such as team games or a movie night.

Youth hostel, ranch during our riding camps, or a sailboat: The type of accommodation for the children and teenagers is listed for each camp. Mostly there are shared rooms, sometimes also single apartments.

And what is there to eat? At overnight language camps, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included. At day camps we provide snacks and drinks.

Please contact us if your child has food allergies or intolerances, or requires a special diet. We will be happy to check if your chosen camp location can accommodate dietary needs and offer alternatives.

Regardless whether it is a sports camp, a climbing camp or else: The kids and teens are exposed to the foreign language from early in the morning until late at night and use it actively. The native-speaker team at the camp makes sure of this.

In the mornings, it’s time for language instruction: Learning takes place through exercises that encourage active speaking, such as interviews or role-playing. During the afternoon and evening group activities, all communication between the staff and your child will also take place in the foreign language. Exceptions are made for instructions for special sports activities, safety-related information, or emergencies.

Of course the kids sometimes speak to each other in their native language. But customer feedback from recent years shows that most students are more confident in speaking in the foreign language after the holiday camp.
