Berlitz Holiday Camp at Fehmarn

Jugendherberge Fehmarn

Learning English on the island of Fehmarn

The sunny island of Fehmarn is home to our English camps for children ages 7 to 17 during Easter, summer and fall breaks. On exciting excursions, we get to explore the second largest Baltic island. English lessons take place in small groups and, of course, there’s lots of fun and action at the beach.

Learning languages according to the Berlitz method and with lots of fun

Learning at camp is fun: there are no exams or boring studying; instead, we do roleplaying and language games. On the day of arrival, kids do a short placement test that helps us assign them to groups according to their age and language level. They’ll learn together and quickly make new friends in their group. That is usually the best motivation.

At the Fehmarn holiday camp, we also incorporate learning into our daily routine. Our experienced language teachers are also the counselors who will lead the leisure program. They’ll speak with the kids and teens in the foreign language all day long. The advantage: kids will hear lots of everyday vocabulary and authentic pronunciation throughout the camp week.

Our mission at the Fehmarn language camp: to have a great vacation! And to show the kids how much fun learning foreign languages is. That means our Berlitz camps are all based on the following premise:

  • Foreign language classes five mornings a week (4 x 45 minutes daily)
  • Kids are encouraged to speak actively in small groups

Learning by speaking: leisure program in English

At our Berlitz Camp on Fehmarn, everything revolves around English. Language learning also continues in the afternoons and evenings: our experienced counselors always speak English with the kids during joint recreational activities. Our on-site team plans exactly what the kids will do, depending on the size of the group, the weather, and availability.

Other typical on-site activities:

Here’s an example of the activities participants on Fehmarn can look forward to:

  • The beautiful beach is the perfect place for kids to go swimming, relax in the sun, or complete cool team challenges like "Capture the Flag".
  • Sports fans can compete in soccer or table tennis tournaments, try stand-up paddleboarding, and go on pedal boat tours.
  • Discover the island on joint excursions, for example the Fehmarn Sound Bridge or the Baltic island’s picturesque lighthouses.
  • A visit to the harbor or a shopping trip to Burg, the largest town on the island, is also bound to be fun.

Even evenings are exciting at our English camp on Fehmarn. We might organize a barbecue evening, play games, and compete in fun country quizzes at the youth hostel – all still in English, of course. Our team of counselors motivate the kids to also speak English – including with each other.

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

Sleeping in log cabins: a different kind of youth hostel

Our accommodation on Fehmarn is truly unique: we’ll be staying in small yellow and blue log cabins. The grounds of the youth hostel also have a soccer field, lawn, table tennis tables, and a barbecue area for delicious barbecues in the evenings. When the weather is bad, a playroom with books and board games, foosball, and a pool table provide plenty of variety.

Welcome to the sunny island of Fehmarn

The youth hostel is located in Burg, the idyllic island capital. Right next to our accommodation is the south beach – a beautiful sandy beach with beach chairs and a promenade for strolling. Burg’s highlights include the old harbor with fishing boats, yachts, and restaurants. The picturesque market square with the historic town hall is also noteworthy. The island’s traditional weekly market takes place here every Wednesday. The Fehmarn Sound Bridge and the island’s lighthouses are also popular destinations for excursions.

Additional information

Boredom doesn’t stand a chance at our Fehmarn holiday camp. Our qualified counselors are always at the kids’ side – from English lessons in the mornings to organizing the varied leisure and evening program.

All employees are trained in the Berlitz method: this means that they place special focus on practical use of the foreign language. As English is the official camp language, our experienced counselors will speak to the kids in the foreign language the entire time. The only exceptions are for emergencies or special, safety-related information or programs. And they’ll also provide exciting insight into the cultures of different English-speaking countries.

Learning builds up an appetite. For us, that means it’s particularly important that all participants at the Fehmarn Berlitz language camp are well fed. Kids will receive three meals a day. Depending on what we have planned for the day, lunch will either be a hot meal or packed lunch. Important: remember to pack a reusable water bottle so that your child can fill it up between meals.

Good food is important to us. If your child has any allergies or intolerances, please speak to our team before booking.

Welcome: Parents will get the exact time to bring their kids to the camp on the day of arrival with the travel information send before the camp starts. After getting to know one another, there will be a parents’ meet-and-greet in addition to a Q&A session. Kids will receive a welcome package that includes a T-shirt, gym bag, and much more. We’ll also carry out a short placement. Using this, we’ll assign kids to their learning groups.

Time to say goodbye: On the last day, parents will be able to pick up their kids. Parents can find the exact pick-up time in the travel information they’ll receive well in advance. Additional documents, including the camp-made camp magazine and certificate of participation, will be sent to kids and teens after the end of the camp.

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.
