The mountains are calling: the Berlitz English camp in Niedersonthofen

Learning English in the Alps? That's the name of the game at our Berlitz language camp in Niedersonthofen. In this picturesque town located 1,000 meters above sea level, we combine English language classes with an ingenious sports program that includes climbing, water skiing or wakeboarding. Or how about a visit to Germany's longest summer toboggan run?

Improving English skills at Niedersonthofen language camp with Berlitz

Our holiday camp in Niedersonthofen 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.

Fun in the Alps: our leisure program

Following language classes in the morning, we go full steam ahead with our colorful leisure program in the afternoon. Niedersonthofen and the surrounding area is home to great excursion destinations and lots of opportunities for kids to do various sports. During the afternoon and evening program, camp counselors will continue to speak English with the kids. Our playful learning methods and use of the camp language takes away kids' fear of speaking English. The only exception: safety instructions for climbing or water sports will be given by professional mountain guides or teachers in German.

Mountain and climbing day

Among other things, kids can look forward to a mountain and climbing day with the Bergschule Kleinwalsertal. At the natural climbing garden, for example, rock climbing and rappelling down the rock face – secured by professional mountain guides, of course – are on the agenda. Or kids can embark on a wild mountain creek crossing.

Water sports

Another highlight is the introductory water-skiing and wakeboarding course on Lake Niedersonthofen. Important note: kids must be at least 12 years old and good at swimming.

Other activities

Possible program highlights also include a stream bed adventure, easy mountain hike including a ride in the chairlift or a visit to the "Alpseecoaster": Germany's longest summer toboggan run with more than 100 curves, waves and jumps that can reach speeds of up to 40 kilometers per hour.

In the evening, we'll end the day with a dinner together or around the campfire.

They can really let off steam on the playground and in the large wooded area and meadow. And the private campfire site is perfect for a cozy evening by the crackling fire.

Enjoying nature with a lake and mountain view

Niedersonthofen is located in the pre-Alpine foothills about 15 kilometers south of Kempten at approx. 1,000 meters above sea level. The view of the Allgäu Alps and Lake Niedersonthofen is truly stunning! Surrounded by meadows and forests, the lake is perfect for swimming, sailing, rowing, surfing and fishing.

Additional information

"Let's speak English" – that's the motto we follow at the Niedersonthofen 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.
