Language practice meets skiing, sports and tons of fun
At Sportcamp Nordbayern in Bischofsgrün, young sports fans will get to experience as many sports and activities as they handle. In summer, the beautiful natural surroundings of the Fichtel forest and numerous adventure trails beckon. In winter, it’s off to the slopes, building a snowman, or discovering the winter landscape.
Bischofsgrün language camp – the perfect place to learn English
During lessons, our qualified counselors will focus on one thing above all: having fun with English through, for example, varied learning methods. In addition to language games, kids might conduct interviews, write or edit English song lyrics, or create articles for their own camp magazine.
Speaking instead of cramming: kids learn English best by using the language. That is our mission at the holiday camp in Bischofsgrün. In addition to a great leisure program in the afternoons, our participants can look forward to:
- Lessons in the mornings (5 days a week, 4 x 45 minutes each) and
- Learning in small groups according to the Berlitz method ("learning by speaking").
The Berlitz team will assign kids to learning groups according to their age and language level on the day of arrival. This ensures that all kids benefit from the best possible learning environment.
Fun and action at Sportcamp Nordbayern in Bischofsgrün
Attention sports fans: the language camp in Bischofsgrün is perfect for those who love being active. No matter what time of year: in summer, we discover the beautiful surroundings on exciting adventure trails. In winter, we let off steam on the slopes. Here, language meets fun and games: we’ll be speaking English the entire time. German is only used for safety or important instructions, such as during skiing lessons.
General sports program
At the Bischofsgrün summer sports camp, active kids can make the most of what’s on offer – no matter the weather. Soccer fans can let off steam on the artificial or grass turf field. Or how about trying out volleyball, or indoor and outdoor climbing for a change? In case of bad weather we use one of the large and modern sports halls. If the weather’s nice, we’ll also go on a fairy-tale trail hike or to the summer toboggan run! Another highlight is the Berlitz Olympics, where young athletes can show what they've got. Our team is sure to plan a varied program – all in English, of course!
Winter ski program
During winter break, the program includes professional ski lessons. We hit the slopes four days a week. It doesn’t matter whether kids have never been on skis before or are already gliding down the slopes like the pros. Ski equipment rental is included.
Relaxed evenings at the Bischofsgrün sports camp
An active day of sports is followed by a well-earned, relaxing evening. After dinner at the lodge restaurant, we might pass the time playing board games, fun quizzes, or we’ll all come together for a movie night. Still have energy to spare? Then we’ll have a party and hit the dance floor together!
Note: Actual activities offered may vary depending on weather and availability.

A huge site: Sportcamp Nordbayern
So much space and so many options! Active kids will feel right at home on the 55,000 square meter Sportcamp Nordbayern site in Bischofsgrün. The facility was opened in 2022 and is state-of-the-art. Whether it’s the indoor sports hall, climbing walls, beach volleyball courts, or gym: nothing is left to be desired here. After an eventful day, we’ll make ourselves comfortable in the adorable shared rooms (girls and boys will sleep in separate rooms).
Summer spirit and winter wonders in the Fichtel Mountains
Here kids can breathe the fresh forest air and enjoy nature: Bischofsgrün in the Upper Franconian Fichtel Mountains is a natural paradise. The picturesque spa town is framed by the two highest peaks in the region: the Ochsenkopf and the Schneeberg. We can discover the enchanting surroundings on, for example, the fairy-tale hiking trail or forest adventure trail. When the temperatures start to drop, the area around Bischofsgrün turns into a popular winter sports destination with a fun park for real thrills. Super practical: the ski lifts at Ochsenkopf are very close to the accommodation.

Having qualified counselors is the be-all and end-all at our Bischofsgrün language camp. Our counselors come from different countries, including England, Mexico, France, the US, and Austria. They have plenty of experience in looking after kids.
In addition to the lessons in the mornings, they are responsible for organizing the recreational activities in the afternoons and evenings. What makes us stand out: our counselors speak to kids in the foreign language all day long and motivate them to use the foreign language as much as possible. That’s what makes learning fun!
Sports and exercise make you hungry, that’s for sure! That’s why we’ll be feasting on delicious and healthy meals at Sportcamp Nordbayern. We’ll get to enjoy Franconian cuisine and the fantastic view from the lodge restaurant – three times a day.
Please don’t forget to bring your own water bottle to stay hydrated between meals.
The first camp day: You will get the exact arrival times with the travel information send to you before the start of the camp.

In order to place them in the right learning group, we will do a short placement with the kids, based on a few short written and oral questions.
