Langeoog Language Camp: A French-speaking beach vacationh
Get ready for that vacation feeling: Our language camp on the island of Langeoog doesn't just take place in a dreamy location – it's super varied, too. We'll discover this unique island together by taking a hike on the mudflats, chilling at the beach and heading to the seawater adventure pool. And we'll also learn French along the way in a really playful style that's a whole lot of fun!
Langeoog holiday camp: language training according to the Berlitz method
"En Français, s’il vous plait.” is our Berlitz language camp motto. During the lessons as well as the leisure program, kids and teens will learn to, above all, speak freely and fluently. French is the official camp language. That way, kids can automatically perfect their pronunciation and expand their vocabulary.
Our Langeoog language camp includes:
- Lessons in the mornings (4 x 45 minutes five days a week) and
- Encouragement to speak in small learning groups.
Kids will be called on to be creative: playful learning methods, such as debates, roleplaying, or creating a camp magazine, ensure that learning is lots of fun. We will split the kids into small groups according to their language level. Kids with no previous knowledge will learn to communicate in everyday situations. Kids who already speak French can deepen their knowledge and learn to use the language practically.
Fun, Free Time and French
Calling all water fans: We spend as much time in and on the water as possible at our French camp on Langeoog. After morning class, we let our hair down by playing some sports or heading to the beach. Or we go swimming in the North Sea. The exact activities we do depend on factors like the weather. But one thing's for sure: We keep on speaking French even after class!
Fun beach activities and exciting trips
There's so much to do at the beach! Like creating imaginative sand sculptures, building castles to try and hold back the tide and – it almost goes without saying – playing some sports. In fact, beach volleyball and soccer are even more fun on the soft sand. Anyone who likes swimming will love this camp, too. We'll go swimming in the North Sea or visit the seawater adventure pool to test out the wave pool and the 42-meter (138-foot) slide. Another highlight: We'll go on a mudflat hike to jump feet-first into the mud, go hunting for lugworms and learn everything there is to know about the ebb and flow of the tides.
Cozy evenings back at camp
The fun doesn't stop back at camp when the stars start twinkling in the sky at night. That's when we'll enjoy parties, barbecues and cozy evening meals. Adventurous kids will really love the night hike: We'll explore the beach and the dunes together after the sun goes down.
The activities mentioned here are examples and may vary depending on dates, availability and group.

Welcome to Langeoog: this is where we’ll be staying
Schullandheim Ratsgymnasium Bielefeld, Willrath-Dreesen-Straße 9, 26465 Langeoog
Perfect for active kids: our accommodation
Hi! We'll be staying in a country retreat that's owned by the Ratsgymnasium school in Bielefeld and located just a few minutes away from the sandy beach. The center of the local town with its stores and cafés is really close by, too. We can let our hair down as much as we like in the house because we'll have the whole place to ourselves. The school's country retreat features a great range of amenities, with table tennis, foosball, a library, a soccer pitch and basketball nets. There are even beach toys and balls for us to use. Girls and boys will be accommodated in separate shared rooms.
Langeoog: A North Sea island with a special sense of charm
Colorful basket chairs, romantic sand dunes and beautiful beaches – Langeoog has everything you'd hope for from a dreamy vacation island. The name "Langeoog" means "long island" and the island's main landmark – its iconic white water tower – gives it its special sense of charm. It's also a true natural paradise. There are no cars on Langeoog and the majority of the island forms part of the Wadden Sea National Park. With any luck, we'll even be able to see some seals while we're here, too.

At our Langeoog language camp, your kids will not only learn the foreign language, but above all, feel completely comfortable. This is ensured by our experienced counselors who are there for the kids round the clock. In addition to the lessons in the mornings, they organize our varied afternoon and evening program.
In accordance with our Berlitz concept of "learning by speaking", all camp counselors and kids will speak in the foreign language, all day long. Our mission: to make learning languages fun and enjoyable for kids.
At our camps, we make sure our participants get the food they need. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. Depending on the program, there is a hot lunch or a packed lunch for the day.
Please let us know before booking if we need to be aware of any allergies, intolerances, or dietary issues. Kids should also bring their own refillable water bottle.
What to expect on the day of arrival: On the first day, parents should bring their kids to camp according to the time mentioned in the travel, information (sent to all participants before camp starts). After check-in, our camp team will be able to answer any remaining questions at the parents' welcome session. Afterwards, all kids will complete a short placement (written and oral). Our welcome package ensures kids are more than ready to start off their camp week.
All important departure information: After a joint farewell with both counselors and all participants, parents will be able to pick up their kids on the day of departure. You will find the exact pick-up time in the travel documents we send out before the camp starts. Please arrive on time, as the Berlitz team will also be departing. We will then send you all the camp documents and a certificate of participation.
Important information about the transfer: This is a flat-rate transfer fee including VAT, therefore it is not possible to book a single transfer route (arrival or departure). The transfer can be booked up to 3 weeks before the start of the camp. After that, transfer bookings are no longer possible. Only a binding and timely booked transfer enables participation. Children for whom the transfer has not been booked on time are excluded from the supervised group transfer. In this case, they must make their own arrival and departure. There must be a minimum of 10 participants for our supervised transfer. A transfer that is no longer available or cannot be carried out does not entitle the camp booking to be canceled.
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.
