Büdingen English camp: A sustainable language vacation

Kids who care about sustainability will love this language camp. Here at the Eco-Friendly Youth Hostel in Büdingen, we don't just learn English together, but also find out lots of interesting things about protecting the environment. Büdingen has the special distinction of being the first fully vegetarian youth hostel in Germany. And because it's located in the middle of a forest, we can enjoy nature with all our senses here, too.

Learning English in Büdingen according to the Berlitz method

At our Büdingen language camp, we aim to give kids the confidence and self-assurance they need to speak English in a group setting. Therefore, we make sure that the learning groups are assigned according to age and ability level. Friendships often develop this way, and many kids can't wait to see their new friends again at another camp the following year.

The core focus of our Berlitz method is to use the foreign language as much as possible. We do this primarily through play: for example, by having the kids create a camp diary, play language games, or work on projects.

At our Büdingen language camp, everything revolves around the foreign language. We'll be speaking as much English as possible - both during lessons and the leisure program. Kids can expect the following:

  • Learning by speaking" in small groups with a qualified counselor,
  • 4 x 45-minute classes five camp days a week.

Nature, adventure, and language: a vacation program for active kids

Enjoying unforgettable experiences, trying exciting activities, and learning a foreign language along the way: at our Büdingen holiday camp, kids get to use newly learned words and phrases in a fun way right from the start.

Discovery tours, hut-building in the forest, and fun quiz evenings: for the most part, kids will speak to each other in the foreign language. German is only used for important safety instructions or in case of emergency.

Sports, fun and games in the afternoon

Our holiday camp program is varied and fun. What do kids do? It depends on the season and the weather. For example, we cook together and taste our dishes afterwards, we experience exciting excursions in the surrounding area or get creative. Whether it's drawing comics and mangas, tying friendship bracelets and much more - ideas are welcome.

Builders of the forest: Out into nature

Outdoors together: We learn how to work with natural materials and experience a lot of interesting facts and real team spirit. Which forest dwellers are master builders? Here is the answer. At the same time, we get to know the materials in the forest. Whether wood, softwood or hardwood, soft or hard - the forest is diverse and in small groups we make load-bearing constructions. In short: we become master builders of the forest.

  • Hut construction in the forest,
  • Construction tasks,
  • Forest education programme according to ESD guidelines,
  • nature education programme points.

Experience a falconry demonstration

Experience the "rulers of the air" up close: That's possible at the falconry demonstration. The falconer brings us real specimens. So we can observe interesting facts live.

  • Wild birds up close,
  • Facts about wild birds,
  • Breeding and keeping wild birds,
  • Flight guidance (weather dependent),
  • nature education programme points.

Cozy evenings with new friends

The activities mentioned here are examples and may vary depending on dates, availability and group.

After an exciting day in the great outdoors or (if necessary) indoors, we make ourselves comfortable in the evening at Büdingen language camp. This can be a crackling campfire, for example. Our fun music competition "Battle of the Bands" is also not to be missed. We also read stories in the foreign language or just play relaxed games together.

A youth hostel like no other

The wind rustles in the trees, bees buzz in front of the building and chickens scratch about in the yard. Büdingen Youth Hostel enjoys an idyllic location at the edge of a forest where we can relax and spend time surrounded by our animal friends. The kids are sure to fall in love with the cute little lambs at first sight. We start the day with breakfast that comes complete with tasty honey from the hostel's own hives.

Then it's time to explore the enormous outdoor area with its forest ropes course, its barefoot hiking path, its soccer field and its table tennis tables. When we want to relax, we can hang out on the sun loungers in front of the hostel or in the American school bus that's located in the grounds. And when the evening comes around, the girls and boys settle down in separate dormitory rooms.

A little journey through time: The medieval town of Büdingen

Büdingen brings the Middle Ages back to life with its winding alleys, mighty city walls and pointed spires. Located just an hour's drive northeast of Frankfurt, the picturesque settlement boasts one of the best-preserved historical townscapes in Europe. A convenient location: Our accommodation is within walking distance of the town center.
