On the trail of the Romans at the Xanten language camp

The lake, a sandy beach, and historic Roman buildings – our English camp in Xanten features plenty of Italian flair. But only English is spoken: for our participants aged 7 to 17, English practice in small groups is on the agenda in the mornings, in addition to a colorful leisure program in the afternoons.

Learning by speaking: learning languages according to the Berlitz method

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 Xanten 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.

Our mission at the Xanten 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 can be fun: fun and action at the Xanten holiday camp

At Xanten 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 Xanten holiday camp in the afternoons: those who like sports can let off steam by playing volleyball 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 beach volleyball, soccer, or table tennis
  • Swimming in the lake or Aquapark or relaxing at the shore
  • experience history in the archaeological park and LVR-RömerMuseum
  • 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:

  • Hosting music competitions and game nights,
  • Toasting marshmallows and baking campfire bread over the campfire,
  • Spending free time with friends new and old.

Note: Actual activities offered may vary depending on weather and availability.

Learning English at Lake Südsee: our accommodation

At our accommodation in Xanten, participants will stay in shared rooms – many of which offer a great view of Xanten’s Südsee. The large inner courtyard of the youth hostel is bustling with activity – we can even have a barbecue together there. The modern youth hostel also has its own disco room, table tennis tables, small soccer field covered with AstroTurf, and a goal wall. There’s a beach volleyball court right next to the accommodation, guaranteeing lots of fun for everyone.

The opportunity to experience history live in the ancient Roman town of Xanten

In addition to English lessons, a variety of recreational activities await kids at our Xanten language camp. A wooden footbridge leads directly from the accommodation to Xanten’s Südsee. Here, the kids can swim and sunbathe, or watch surfing, sailing, and water skiing.

The surrounding area also has a lot to offer: Xanten, with its picturesque colorful houses, is famous for the archaeological park where the ancient Roman city of Colonia Ulpia Traiana was located.

Additional information

Boredom doesn’t stand a chance at our Xanten holiday camp. Our qualified counselors are always at the kids’ side – from English lessons in the mornings to organizing the varied leisure and evening program.

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 Xanten 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.

Welcome: Parents will get the exact time to bring their kids to the camp on the day of arrival with the travel information send before the 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.
