Learning English is fun
„Learning by speaking“ – this is the principle we follow at our Berlitz English camps, combining language lessons with exciting leisure activities.
In the mornings, children and teenagers receive English lessons. These lessons are designed to be playful and focus on active speaking, so they have little in common with normal school lessons. After the language sessions, the students are encouraged to actively use their English skills. Of course, we still have fun – after all, it is vacation time, and it is important for the children to have a good time.
There is something for everyone within the varied leisure program at our English camps: sports enthusiasts can work off their energy with sporting activities, water rats are in their element with activities such as sailing, windsurfing, and swimming, and horse lovers have the opportunity to learn to ride at the English camp.
A Berlitz camp is all about learning languages through play, exciting activities, making new friends and, last but not least: Taking a vacation.

English Camp Concept
Our English camps follow the concept of the successful Berlitz method: the children are completely immersed in the English language during their stay, as it is spoken throughout by our Berlitz team.
At the beginning of the camp, the children and teenagers are tested for their language skills and learning objectives without any pressure to perform. They are then divided into small, homogeneous learning groups. This ensures that each student is able to follow the English lessons and get the most out of them.
The children are taught daily in 4 sessions of 45 minutes each by our trained camp team who uses motivating and lively teaching methods. Afterwards, camp participants speak English exclusively during recreational activities in order to practice the language in real-life situations.
English camps can be booked for one or two weeks. Don’t worry, the program changes every week, so it certainly won’t be boring.
English camps with a difference
In addition to the classic camps and activities, we also offer special formats and focuses:
Day Camps without overnight stays
Many children find it easier to stay overnight in familiar surroundings. Thanks to our Day Camps, they still don’t have to miss out on the chance of an exciting language vacation!
Unlike traditional language camps, our Activity Camps do away with the classroom. And yet the participants are still completely immersed in the foreign language!
Exam Preparation at English Camp
Perfect for when Abi or final exams are coming up: at some of our language camps, we offer a special English exam preparation program for middle school graduation and high school graduation. Our local Berlitz team knows what is important for the upcoming school exams.
English Camps Abroad
Where better to learn English than in Great Britain? If you attend an English camp in Scotland, England, or even Ireland, you will be spending your time there alongside both other camp participants from Germany and the Berlitz counselors. During the vacations, everyone stays together in a youth hostel or boarding school.
Frequently asked questions
The same concept is followed at all locations. It is a good idea to look for camp locations in your own area to make travel easier. However, there are different recreational activities available at each location. Therefore, it may be that a language camp further away will be more suitable. We also offer organized arrivals and departures to many English camps. This way you don’t have to worry about how to get your child to your chosen location.
All Berlitz counselors only speak in English during the language camps. This is important so that participants are immersed in the foreign language from the beginning to the end of the English camp, both in class and during the recreational programs. Some important exceptions: prove the rule: for instruction during special sports programs, in emergencies and for safety instructions, we will switch to German if necessary.
