Currently there are no summer language camps scheduled
Alternative suggestions: You could come as a family to the Language Experience for German instruction. I also work with teenagers I have trained since 2006 to assist with our kids who are learning German which usually guarantees very lively and fun sessions. I also have contacts to local families through our bilingual German/English language camps. I know them very well, some of them since our first camp in 2005. I could arrange for „get-togethers” with our camper families, which provides very effective language and cultural training. I am a strong believer in “learning by doing” and have developed and used my easy going “situative-kinetic learning” since I founded the “Language Experience” (hence the name).
As far as future camps go I am hoping for a cooperation with a large international company.
A collaborate effort of The Language Experience, Germany & The Center for Accelerated Learning, USA
Also a collaborate effort for kids age 10 – 15, who are either native English or German speakers to learn each others language. Not just to improve their school grades but also to make new international friends and continue communication beyond the camp. Our teachers, trainers and facilitators will also be native English or German speakers. Our language program is designed to appeal to all learning styles and includes a wide range of activity based learning opportunities. Our „situative-kinetic“ instruction at The Language Experience has been successful since 1995. Tom Meier, co-director of The Center for Accelerated Learning will bring years of experience and a wealth of innovative and effective teaching methods to our joint venture camp. Students will be able to choose from arts&crafts, drama, sports, games workshops and activities for language learning and fun. They will be supported by peers and adults alike.
Location, lodging, food: at the nature preserve Lake Tankum camp ground near Gifhorn. Life guard and medic on grounds- DLRG Deutsche Lebensrettungsgesellschaft. Seperate large dorm tents for boys and girls with adult supervision day and night.

End of camp celebration
All campers will be presenting a bi – lingual performance for invited guests, family and friends followed by a barbecue. For overnight stays, parents can either book rooms in local hotels or bring a tent (small fee required at the camp ground). Appointments to visit the permanent location of The Language Experience in walking distance can be arranged.
