With our varied and action-packed leisure program, boredom doesn’t stand a chance. Every day our team of counselors offers a wide range of sports as well as creative, musical or cultural activities. We are also happy to accommodate special requests from our young guests whenever possible, provided that sufficient numbers of participants are interested.
Naturally the children are supervised during their leisure time as well. They are more than welcome to contribute their individual talents – athletic, musical, artistic or otherwise – to the course and in our big celebration on the last evening.
After lessons in the afternoons and evenings and on weekends
sports, creative and cultural activities: there are many options to choose from depending on the location, weather and interests, for example:
- games for the whole group such as soccer, volleyball, basketball, badminton, table tennis, billiards, swimming, hiking, cycling, jogging
- batik, painting, crafts, theater, pantomime, videos, disco
- excursions in the vicinity
- shopping trips (fares not included)
- barbecues and garden parties
- One full day excursion for the entire group per two-week course; two per three-week course; three per four-week course
Many activities are held right on the campus. Other outings take place in the surrounding area. For the day trips the group generally travels by chartered bus or takes the train.
Most activities in the cultural, leisure and sports program are included in the course fee.
For some special sporting or artistic activities (pottery, riding, tennis, swimming pool) there is an additional charge of €5 to €15 per activity.
We recommend €80 per week.
Additional expenses such as the cost of shopping for personal items (souvenirs, electronic games, sports shoes, clothing, toys or games, jewellery, food or beverages, etc.) during outings are a matter of individual preference.
During the sessions of our young learners courses, German schools are usually closed for holidays. German families are often away on summer vacation during this time.
To arrange for contact with native speakers in addition to our team of teachers and supervisors, activities are set up during lessons such as interviews with Germans who live or work at the course location. We also organize visits by German youth groups if possible (for a soccer game, for example) or other institutions.
