Golfing and learning English at Lake Steinhude
Playing golf during the day and enjoying a pirate-themed disco in the evening: at our English camp in Mardorf, adventurers big and small can experience an unforgettable vacation. Lake Steinhude is right on our doorstep and we have private access to the beach. Together, we’ll discover the beautiful surroundings and spend as much time as possible outdoors.
Mardorf 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 Mardorf. 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.
Fun, action and English: our leisure program
Here (budding) golfers, water lovers, and nature fans make the most of everything on offer: at Mardorf language camp, we’ll get to experience exciting, varied afternoons in beautiful surroundings. We’ll play sports together, as well as fun team games, and swim in the lake when the weather is warm. We’ll be speaking English the entire time. The only exception are safety instructions or other important information that will be given in German.
Golf lessons for beginners and advanced players
How do you hold a golf club correctly? What does "handicap" mean? Beginners can learn the basic rules of the traditional sport during golf lessons. Advanced golfers can hone their skills with the help of professionals. Professional golf lessons will take place four afternoons a week. Very practical: the golf school is located very close to our accommodation. The golf equipment is included, those who wish can of course bring it themselves.
Throwing a party together or just relaxing: our afternoon and evening program
If you don’t want to go golfing, you’ll be just as bored: together we’ll discover the area around Lake Steinhude, let off some energy with joint activities such as sports and team games, or get creative.
The sun has set, but the fun just keeps on coming: if we’re in the mood to party, we’ll host a pirate-themed disco in the party room, complete with cool decorations. If kids are more in the mood for relaxing, the team will perhaps organize a relaxed movie night or creative workshops. Or we’ll spend our evenings enjoying a delicious barbecue and forging even better friendships.
Note: Actual activities offered may vary depending on weather and availability.
Welcome to Mardorf: this is where we’ll be staying

Mardorf Youth Hostel: located on the romantic lakeside
The hostel has its own kayak rental, cozy barbecue hut, and plenty of space to play and run wild: it’s impossible to get bored at Mardorf Youth Hostel. When kids aren’t down by the lake, they can let off steam at the adventure playground or test their skills on the rock wall. If the weather is bad, we can have an exciting foosball tournament indoors. Another very cool highlight: many of the cozy shared rooms, where boys and girls will sleep separately, have a great lake view.
Mardorf: an enchanting place
What a location! Mardorf Youth Hostel is located right on the shores of Lake Steinhude, the largest lake in Lower Saxony. Kids who enjoy nature will immediately fall in love with the small village of Mardorf. It’s located in the middle of beautiful natural surroundings that include forest, moor, and heath. Wonderful sandy beaches and clean water are just waiting to be discovered. The perfect place for a great vacation and just pure relaxation!

Having qualified counselors is the be-all and end-all at our Mardorf 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.
