Girls only: riding adventure in Clenze exclusively for girls

Climb into that saddle and away we go: there's plenty for horse enthusiasts to experience at this one or two-week English camp for 7 to 17-year-old girls. We'll learn all about how to handle and look after horses, as well as getting plenty of time to ride these magnificent creatures.

This is what language training looks like at Camp Clenze

At the camp, girls will be able to practice their English in class with our qualified camp counselors. The leisure program in the afternoons and evenings allows them to apply what they've learned. That means any new knowledge can be immediately strengthened.

At Berlitz language camps, kids and teens get to practice a language in a proper, intuitive manner. Those who come to the camp without any previous knowledge practice communicating in everyday situations that are typical for their age.

For those with previous knowledge, the goal is to convert passive knowledge into active language use. That means choosing the right tense, vocabulary and syntax in a variety of situations. Making mistakes is part of the process!

  • Lessons 5 days a week, always in the morning for 4 x 45 minutes
  • Level placement at the start of camp
  • Learning in small groups with similar language skills

Leisure program: fun with horses and relaxation

The camp will be based at a horse ranch, which means there's plenty of fun stuff to do, whether it's with or without a horse. In addition to English training, girls can look forward to a diverse program and riding lessons. Of course, the language training doesn't stop there, as our counselors will continue to speak exclusively in English.

Riding program:

Riding lessons take place on four afternoons for 1.5 hours each – under professional guidance and conducted in German for safety reasons. The horse ranch is an "FN-approved riding school." That means it has been certified by the German Equestrian Association (FN).

The riding lessons will be led by professional riding instructors, and girls will be assigned well-trained horses used for teaching. That way, we can give each girl a little bit of heaven on earth – whether she's an advanced rider or just a beginner.

For those who have never ridden before, there is a 20-minute lunge lesson. This takes place on a one-on-one basis, thus allowing the riding instructor to devote the utmost attention to each individual rider. Advanced riders can go horseback riding in the vicinity of the horse ranch.

Other typical on-site activities:

  • Creative workshops, for example designing trendy jewelry and bags, duct tape art, photo stories or making pottery in the horse ranch's culture barn
  • Trip to the nearby outdoor pool in summer
  • Forest survival and building a hut in the woods
  • In the evenings, events may include a campfire, beauty or wellness evening, talent show, movie night or Hawaiian party

Note: Actual activities offered may vary depending on weather and availability.

Welcome to Clenze: this is where we'll be staying

Accommodation at a gorgeous horse ranch

In Clenze, we will be housed in several houses at the Seelwig horse ranch. Younger girls will stay in 4- to 6-bed rooms in the main building, a beautiful white half-timbered house. Older girls will be accommodated in apartments located in red Swedish-style wooden houses. These are equipped either with shared shower blocks or shower rooms and toilets.

Lüneburg Heath – a rider's paradise

The language camp in Clenze guarantees lots of fun in scenic surroundings: the Seelwig horse ranch is located in the Lüneburg Heath, which is known as a rider's paradise. The facility is located in the Elbufer/Drawehn nature park and is nestled among meadows, forests and fields – a perfect place for horseback riding in the area.

The horse ranch itself also has a lot to offer: riding lessons take place in the riding hall or riding arena. In summer, there's nothing better than going for a dip: a beautiful bathing lake and nearby outdoor pool ensure girls can cool off, even when it's hot outside. We organize cozy barbecue nights at the campfire site in the courtyard.

Additional information

Our Clenze riding camp includes three meals a day. These are prepared for us by the Seelwig horse ranch. The first meal on the day of arrival is dinner. The horse ranch will provide kids with juice, tea and water with their meals. Our counselors will provide water in between meals. Please bring a reusable water bottle to fill between meals.

Please inform us in advance if your child has allergies, is vegetarian or vegan, or requires a special diet for religious or other reasons.

Our team only speaks the foreign language. Our camp director, who speaks fluent German, is on hand in case of emergency. The Berlitz team also brings a bit of their own culture to the camp. This ignites a sense of curiosity and interest in the language, other cultures and countries.

What sets our teams apart:

  • Experience in child and youth care
  • Native-level knowledge of the foreign language
  • Focus on sports and creativity
  • Proof of a clean criminal record

Parents will, of course, receive a direct phone number to reach our camp director.

Girls can get to the language camp in Clenze either by bus or car: Check-in is at the time mentioned in the travel information (sent to all participants before camp starts). All kids and teens are to register in the entrance area of the accommodation. They will also receive a welcome package with a Berlitz T-shirt and other surprises. Interested parents can meet with counselors after check-in for a quick meet-and-greet. The team members will introduce themselves and answer any questions.

On the last day, it will be farewell for everyone. After the camp, each girl will receive her official language camp papers. These include a certificate of participation and the camp magazine with some nice memories inside.

Then take a look at our kids camp FAQ page where we have gathered further information.

We will also send you further details regarding the pack list, arrival and departure etc. by e-mail after your booking.
