Language camp at a horse ranch

Language-learning or horseback riding vacation? At our language camp at the Reichswaldhof horse ranch, the two go hand in hand! After English lessons in the mornings, we’ll get to spend plenty of time with horses. And when the kids aren’t having riding lessons, they can get to know the other four-legged residents of this cozy farm: llamas, guinea pigs, goats, sheep, and more.

Goch 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 Goch. 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.

Learning English with four-legged friends

This language camp is just what animal lovers have been waiting for: surrounded by horses and other big and small four-legged friends, learning English has never been this fun. But how do you say the names of the animals in English? After the language classes in the morning, we’ll continue to speak in English and learn these and other new words – all in a playful way. Only important safety instructions and important information for riding lessons will be given in German.

Fun and action in the afternoons

Riding lessons, riding excursions in natural surroundings, competitions to come up with ideas for horse snacks and photo shoots with our beloved animals: afternoons at the Reichswaldhof language camp revolve around horses. Our motivated team will think up a whole bunch of activities, so the kids can "horse" around. No boredom here – that’s guaranteed. Kids can let off steam in the spacious outdoor grounds – for example, with a straw fight in the barn. Here are a few program highlights:

  • Riding lessons with qualified riding instructors for beginners and advanced riders four days a week,
  • Spending plenty of time with four-legged friends big and small: llamas, cats, rabbits, Shetland ponies, and more.

Time to relax in the evenings

After an exciting day with our two-legged and four-legged friends, we’ll end the evening together. Depending on the weather, we’ll make ourselves comfortable inside in the guest house or spend the evening under a starry sky. Our evening program looks something like this:

  • Wellness for everyone and zany fashion shows,
  • grilling campfire bread at the bonfire,
  • or an exciting film with snacks just like at the movies.

The actual leisure activities offered depend on dates, weather and availability and may vary.

Welcome to Goch: this is where we’ll be staying

Rural charm in Goch

People and animals feel equally at home here: the Reichswaldhof horse ranch in Goch, about an hour’s drive from Düsseldorf, is located amid scenic natural surroundings. The horse ranch and petting zoo has a huge outdoor area with plenty of places kids can play. We’ll stay in a charming guest house with cozy shared rooms and large lounges. One highlight is the fireplace room, where we can make ourselves comfortable by the crackling fire: absolutely enchanting! And because all that riding, playing, and running around builds up an appetite, there’s a hearty meal three times a day.

Fun and action at the Reichswaldhof horse ranch, no matter what weather

Come rain or shine: active kids can let off steam at the Reichswaldhof horse ranch in any weather. Outside, kids can try out trampolines, kettcars, bouncy cushions, playgrounds, and cable cars. When the weather is bad, kids can play soccer in the hall or go wild in the fun barn with its giant slide, table tennis, and foosball tables. After so much fun and action, we’ll relax on the beach chairs in the inner courtyard or cuddle with the guinea pigs and rabbits at the petting zoo.

Additional information

Having qualified counselors is the be-all and end-all at our Goch 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!

Our ultimate goal: kids should feel completely at home at our Berlitz language camp. In addition to playing, having fun, and making new friends, that also includes good meals, three times a day. All three meals a day are prepared at the accommodation. Drinks like juice, tea, and water are provided with meals. Kids should bring a reusable water bottle to keep them hydrated between meals.

We also aim to offer alternatives for vegetarians, those with allergies, or kids who require special diets. Please be sure to contact us before booking!

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 a common greeting, kids will receive their welcome package and get to know the counselor team and other participants. Everyone is welcome to ask any questions they may have at the special parents’ welcome session. 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.

On the day of departure, kids can be picked up after the joint farewell for all camp participants. Please be on time, as the entire Berlitz team will also be leaving. After camp, we will send you the camp magazine and, of course, a certificate of participation.

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.
