Learning languages and riding horses at the English riding camp in Wenzigerode
Our Berlitz language camp in Wenzigerode, Hesse, is extra special: after English lessons in the morning, kids can ride ponies or horses and look forward to horse hairdressing competitions and wellness evenings. And it's off to our English riding camp in Wenzigerode!
English learning made easy with the Berlitz method
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.
Our Wenzigerode 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.
Whether it's doing projects on topics kids are passionate about, exciting debates or writing a camp diary, the Wenzigerode Camp is all about speaking freely and expanding vocabulary. And fun is the main feature!
Riding, taking care of horses, and so much more – our leisure program
At our Berlitz language camp in Wenzigerode, everything revolves around horses and English. Our team of counselors speaks English with the kids round the clock. And kids quickly lose their fear of speaking English themselves. The riding program takes place at a nearby stud farm - and will be held in German.
That's not all: our Berlitz team organizes many other recreational activities, all depending on the mood. For instance, kids can look forward to beauty or wellness evenings, fashion shows, party nights or making jewelry and horse hairdressing.
The program at the "Der Alte Grenzhof" stud farm will thrill all horse fans. For four afternoons a week, our participants will receive one-hour riding lessons from professional instructors in German. Kids will learn how to handle horses and ponies in a fun and age-appropriate way, from taking care of the animals to riding indoors or out to horseback riding in the surrounding area. The riding lessons and other riding program activities are suitable for both beginners and advanced riders.
Insight into the breeding of Welsh ponies and German riding ponies at the stud farm is also exciting. Under expert guidance, we'll be able to observe the rearing, basic training, and breaking in of these animals. Boredom doesn't stand a chance at our English riding camp in Wenzigerode!
Important: The offered activities are designed by the team depending on the weather, preferences of the group and possibility - therefore the program may vary.

Perfect location at a stud farm – our accommodation
For our English riding camp in Wenzigerode we'll have a seminar house all to ourselves. Kids will be accommodated in shared rooms – girls and boys separately. The accommodation features a beautiful garden, kitchen, and several lounges. Just a few steps away is the "Der Alte Grenzhof" stud farm with its bright riding hall and spacious outdoor riding arena. In addition to horses and ponies, there are cute donkeys and dogs on the farm just waiting to be petted.
Woods and nature: welcome to northern Hesse
Nature as far as the eye can see: the small town of Wenzigerode with just under 200 inhabitants is idyllically located between two streams in northern Hesse, to the east of the Kellerwald-Edersee nature park. The forest starts right behind the seminar house and "Der Alte Grenzhof" stud farm. Here we can explore the area on long rides or pony hikes and simply enjoy nature.
