Woods and wilderness at the Wildberg language camp
Plenty of fresh air: that's what's on the agenda at the Wildberg language camp – alongside exciting language training. Because in the small town of Wildberg in the Black Forest, there is an abundance of unspoiled nature. Our accommodation is right on the edge of the woods and offers plenty of space for fun, games, and sports like trampolining, bouldering or slacklining.
Learning by speaking: learning languages according to the Berlitz method
Our mission at the Wildberg language camp: to have a great vacation! And to show the kids how much fun learning foreign languages is. That means our Berlitz camps are all based on the following premise:
- Foreign language classes five mornings a week (4 x 45 minutes daily)
- Kids are encouraged to speak actively in small groups
Learning at camp is fun: there are no exams or boring studying; instead, we do roleplaying and language games. On the day of arrival, kids do a short placement test that helps us assign them to groups according to their age and language level. They'll learn together and quickly make new friends in their group. That is usually the best motivation.
At the Wildberg holiday camp, we also incorporate learning into our daily routine. Our experienced language teachers are also the counselors who will lead the leisure program. They'll speak with the kids and teens in the foreign language all day long. The advantage: kids will hear lots of everyday vocabulary and authentic pronunciation throughout the camp week.
Learning can be fun: fun and action at the Wildberg holiday camp
At Wildberg language camp, our motto is "learning by doing". After the morning language classes, we continue speaking in the foreign language. Together, we get to do a whole bunch of great activities: scavenger hunts, excursions, and exciting team challenges. Our program is versatile and fun. We only use German for safety instructions or in emergency situations.
Afternoons are filled with lots of action, no matter the weather
Whether it's sunny, windy or rainy: there's always something going on at the Wildberg holiday camp in the afternoons: those who like sports can let off steam by playing basketball or soccer. Big and small artists alike can make clothes or friendship bracelets. Here's an example of activities, depending on the location and season:
- Playing sports, for example ball games or gymnastics
- Tasting typical local food together,
- Designing new board games and trying them out with friends, or
- Shooting videos and watching them together.
Evenings together round the campfire or indoors
After a day packed full of fun and action, we make ourselves comfortable. Firstly, we eat dinner together, then we warm up round the campfire, have a quiz night, or a camp party – depending on the mood and the weather. Evening activities may include:
- Toasting marshmallows and baking campfire bread over the campfire,
- Hosting music competitions and game nights,
- Spending free time with friends new and old and reading exciting stories in the foreign language.
Note: Actual activities offered may vary depending on weather and availability.
Fun & Action Workshops
Welcome to Wildberg: this is where we'll be staying
Haus Saron, Saronweg 31-33, 72218 Wildberg
Plenty of space for active kids: accommodation at Haus Saron
One thing is certain: the extensive outdoor area at our accommodation, Haus Saron, will keep the kids occupied all day long. Because we've got everything kids love here. Haus Saron scores with its basketball hoop, two soccer goals, a playground, chess board and, most importantly, lots of space. And that also applies to the indoors – on rainy days, we'll pass the time taking part in exciting activities in the large group rooms.
And after an exhausting day packed full of fun and running wild, the kids can unwind in the evenings in their cozy shared rooms. Girls and boys will, of course, stay in separate rooms.
Wildberg: a paradise for explorers big and small
Mysterious woods, castle ruins, and even a "witches tower" – there's a lot to discover in Wildberg. The location is less than an hour's drive from Stuttgart and Pforzheim. Our accommodation is in a stunning location: on the edge of the woods, right next to the Nagold river.
Fun fact: the spa town of Wildberg is famous for a fun tradition. At the Shepherd's Run that takes place every two years, shepherds race barefoot through the city!

Our qualified counselors are always at the kids' side – from language lessons in the mornings to organizing the leisure and evening program. Boredom doesn't stand a chance at our Wildberg holiday camp.
All employees are trained in the Berlitz method: this means that they place special focus on practical use of the foreign language. As English is the official camp language, our experienced counselors will speak to the kids in the foreign language the entire time. The only exceptions are for emergencies or special, safety-related information or programs. And they'll also provide exciting insight into the cultures of different English-speaking countries.
Learning builds up an appetite. For us, that means it's particularly important that all participants at the LOCATION Berlitz language camp are well fed. Kids will receive three meals a day. Depending on what we have planned for the day, lunch will either be a hot meal or packed lunch. Important: remember to pack a reusable water bottle so that your child can fill it up between meals.
Good food is important to us. If your child has any allergies or intolerances, please speak to our team before booking.
On the day of arrival, parents can bring their kids to the camp at the time mentioned in the travel information (sent to all participants before camp starts). After getting to know one another, there will be a parents' meet-and-greet in addition to a Q&A session. Kids will receive a welcome package that includes a T-shirt, gym bag, and much more. We'll also carry out a short placement. Using this, we'll assign kids to their learning groups.
Time to say goodbye: On the last day, parents will be able to pick up their kids. Parents can find the exact pick-up time in the travel information they'll receive well in advance. Additional documents, including the camp-made camp magazine and certificate of participation, will be sent to kids and teens after the end of the camp.
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.
