The Goethe-Institut invites students to develop ideas for a shared future in workshops and transform them into aesthetic productions, such as film, that will be published online. By working together and by writing a camp blog the teenager use and improve their German. They make friends with students from partner schools and create an international learning community. Building on the workshops, the students attend to activity-oriented German lessons in the mornings. Last but not least, they have plenty of time to discover Portland and its scenic surroundings together.
