A language vacation at Lake Starnberg at the Berlitz Camp in Possenhofen

Walk in the footsteps of Empress Sissi – all that and more at our English camp in Possenhofen. After language classes in the morning, there's time in the afternoon for swimming, playing, and action at our various team events. Our camp site on Lake Starnberg is easily accessible from Munich. Empress Sissi also spent large parts of her youth in this beautiful region.

Improving English skills at Possenhofen language camp with Berlitz

Our holiday camp in Possenhofen combines English lessons in the mornings with a varied leisure program in the afternoons. During lessons, the focus is on creativity: for example, kids will write content for our camp magazine, draw and describe their own pictures, or act out fairy tales in English. That way, we teach kids to enjoy the foreign language through play.

Learning English during the school break? That's not a problem with our Berlitz English camps! Unlike school lessons, the aim here is not to teach as much material and grammar as possible. We use the Berlitz method of "learning by speaking", i.e. as much active speaking as possible. We offer kids:

  • Lessons five mornings a week (4 x 45 minutes each)
  • Kids are encouraged to actively use English in small groups.

On the day of arrival, we'll assign kids to learning groups according to their age and previous knowledge.

Learning can be fun: fun and action at the Possenhofen holiday camp

At Possenhofen language camp, our motto is "learning by doing". After the morning language classes, we continue speaking in the foreign language. Together, we get to do a whole bunch of great activities: 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 Possenhofen holiday camp in the afternoons: those who like sports can let off steam by playing volleyball or soccer. Big and small artists alike can make clothes or friendship bracelets. Here's an example of activities, depending on the location and season:

  • Playing sports, for example gymnastics, ball games, and climbing
  • Tasting typical local food together,
  • Designing new board games and trying them out with friends, or
  • Shooting videos and watching them together.

In the autumn holidays and at Whitsun, it's "Out of the city - into nature". In outdoor survival we experience an exciting, fictitious scenario. With little equipment and a few tips and tricks, we provide for ourselves in nature. Also on the programme: terrain knowledge and orientation, shelter building, fire and water and cooperation games. In summer, we go stand up paddling (SUP) at the lake. While one part of the group paddles on the water, the others can swim, slide, play volleyball and spikeball under supervision.

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.

Good to know: The program is created and adapted individually and on site for each date and can therefore vary.

Fun and action at the Possenhofen youth hostel

At our accommodation in Possenhofen, kids will be accommodated in shared rooms – girls and boys separately. There's always something going on at the youth hostel. Indoors, there's foosball and table tennis. Board games can be borrowed from the reception. A little tip: you can also buy ice cream and other snacks here.

The large inner courtyard, sun terrace, playground and lawn are popular meeting places. Kids can also let off steam to their hearts' content on the beach and volleyball courts and at the table tennis tables.

Fun at Lake Starnberg

Our youth hostel is located on the northwestern part of beautiful Lake Starnberg and can be easily reached from Munich by S-Bahn. Right next door, a large park separates the house from the lake. Our private bathing area is just a few steps away through the park. Vacation mood guaranteed!

Additional information

"Let's speak English" – that's the motto we follow at the Possenhofen Berlitz Camp. Our experienced counselors are at the kids' side all day long. Both during lessons that take place in small groups in the mornings and during the fun and action in the afternoons and evenings. Our focus: to ensure all kids speak English all day long.

The best proof of the success of our Berlitz concept: many counselors were camp participants themselves in the past and support us year after year!

Providing the best all-round support at our Berlitz language camps is important to us. That also includes a balanced diet. Kids will receive three meals a day and these include drinks like juice, tea, or water. Please pack a reusable water bottle, so that your child can fill it up in between meals.

We try our best to offer alternatives for kids with special requests, such as vegetarians or those with allergies. Please contact our team before booking so that we can discuss this on a one-on-one basis.

How we start: Camp starts on the first day at the time mentioned in the travel information (sent to all participants before camp start). Together with their parents, kids will be able to get to know our team and other participants and take part in a parents' welcome session. All kids will receive our welcome package, which consists of a gym bag, lunch box, T-shirt, and much more. We use a written and oral placement to place kids in the right learning group. With younger kids, we often just talk briefly about their hobbies and everyday life.

Important departure information: Parents can pick up their kids on the day of departure. You will find out exactly when in the camp travel documents. Unfortunately, it is not possible to pick kids up at a later time, as our team will also be leaving. We will send all camp documents, including a certificate of participation, to the participants afterwards.

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.
