Sports and water action in our language camp at Lake Constance

Learning languages combined with sports and water action – that’s the motto for our English camp in Constance on Lake Constance. After the varied English training sessions in the mornings, stand-up-paddling, games or cooling off in the lake are on the program in the afternoons. The perfect vacation for active kids!

Learning by speaking: learning languages according to the Berlitz method

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 Constance 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 Constance 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

Sports and learning languages at Constance holiday camp

At Constance language camp, our motto is "learning by doing". After the morning language classes, we continue speaking in the foreign language. Together, we get active: water sports, scavenger hunts, excursions, and exciting team challenges. Our program is versatile and fun. We only use German for safety instructions or in emergency situations.

Afternoons are filled with lots of action, no matter the weather

Whether it’s sunny, windy or rainy: there’s always something going on at the Constance holiday camp in the afternoons. Here’s an example of activities, depending on the season:

Activities in summer:

  • Water sports: Lake Constance offers excellent conditions for windsurfing. Therefore, on some dates we also offer windsurfing courses (2 x 2.5 hours for beginners). The equipment is available on site. And of course we also take care of the instruction.
  • Those who like sports can let off steam by playing volleyball or soccer.
  • We can go swimming in the Lake of Constance or relax at the youth hostel.

Activities in winter:

  • We really flex our muscles when we go bouldering: Here, participants must try to move just above the ground across the climbing wall.
  • Bad weather? That's a good outlook for Sea Life Konstanz: In the aquarium, you can not only observe Lake Constance fish up close, but also gentoo penguins and many other aquatic inhabitants await visitors.
  • It is also possible to visit the Schwaketenbad, which promises a lot of fun with several swimming or paddling pools, water playground, diving tower and slides.
  • Big and small artists alike can make t-shirts or knot friendship bracelets.

Evenings together round the campfire or indoors

After a day packed full of fun and action, we make ourselves comfortable. Firstly, we eat dinner together, then we warm up round the campfire, have a quiz night, or a camp party – depending on the mood and the weather. Evening activities may include:

  • Toasting marshmallows and baking campfire bread over the campfire,
  • Hosting music competitions and game nights,
  • Spending free time with friends new and old and reading exciting stories in the foreign language.

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

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

Jugendherberge Otto-Moericke-Turm Konstanz, Zur Allmannshöhe 16, 78464 Konstanz

Language camp with a lake view: welcome to the youth hostel

Our accommodation is located right next to the Otto Moericke Tower. The old water tower provides a wonderful view of the lake. Kids will stay in cozy shared rooms. There are also common rooms and playrooms. And if they like, they can play billiards, foosball, table tennis, soccer, volleyball, or basketball. The youth hostel is eco-certified and uses local ingredients whenever possible.

Enjoying Lake Constance at the Constance language camp

Constance and Lake Constance can be easily explored from the youth hostel. The accommodation lies just 200 meters from the shore of Lake Constance. That means kids can go swimming at the lake in the afternoons or simply relax on the lawn at the youth hostel. Downtown Constance is also not far away, so kids can enjoy going shopping and strolling in the old town, watching excursion boats, or taking photos in front of Constance’s landmark, the Imperia statue. Things are guaranteed to be interesting here!

Additional information

Boredom doesn’t stand a chance at our holiday camp in Constance. 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 Constance 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.
