English camp at Schloss Gadow
Our language camp at Gadow Castle in Lanz is extra special: archery, canoeing, cooking over an open fire – that and much more awaits our participants at Gadow Castle. Counselors and kids will speak English with each other all day long at the camp – which includes a knightly experience in a real historic castle!
English learning made easy with the Berlitz method
Whether it’s doing projects on topics kids are passionate about, exciting debates or writing a camp diary, the Gadow Berlitz Camp is all about speaking freely and expanding vocabulary. And fun is the main feature!
Our Gadow language camp combines fun with learning English, all according to our tried-and-tested Berlitz method: learning by speaking. Our language training includes:
- 4 x 45-minute lessons five mornings a week,
- Learning in small groups to encourage active speaking.
Our experienced counselors motivate kids and teens to speak the camp language as much as possible – both in class and during the leisure program in the afternoons.
Nature, adventure, and language: a vacation program for active kids
Enjoying unforgettable experiences, trying exciting activities, and learning a foreign language along the way: at our Gadow holiday camp, kids get to use newly learned words and phrases in a fun way right from the start.
Discovery tours, hut-building in the forest, and fun quiz evenings: for the most part, kids will speak to each other in the foreign language. German is only used for important safety instructions or in case of emergency.
Sports, fun, and games in the afternoon
Our holiday camp program is varied and fun. What do kids do? It depends on the season and the weather. Here are a few examples of what active kids can experience at camp:
- Sports like canoeing, hiking, or archery in the castle,
- Building huts, dams or cairns in the forest,
- Cooking delicious food together,
- Going on exciting excursions in the surrounding area, or
- Getting creative, for example, drawing comics or manga strips, making friendship bracelets, and much more.
Cozy evenings with new friends
After an exciting day in the great outdoors or (if necessary) indoors, we make ourselves comfortable in the evening at Gadow language camp: depending on the weather and season, round the campfire or inside. But, of course, there’s still lots of exciting activities to enjoy, such as:
- Baking campfire bread and toasting marshmallows,
- A fun "Battle of the Bands" music competition,
- Reading stories in the foreign language, or
- Simply playing together.
Important: The offered activities are designed by the team depending on the weather, preferences of the group and possibility – therefore the program may vary.

Sleeping among history: Gadow Castle
Our accommodation is a former knight’s castle with a large park. Kids will be accommodated in shared rooms with shower and toilet – girls and boys separately. There are countless fun things to do around the historic castle. In addition to archery, canoeing and raft building, we can try our hand at outdoor cooking over a campfire. In the castle itself, there’s a disco room with music and lighting for our camp disco.
