Language Vacation camp in Bernau, Germany for children and teenagers


This summer, friLingue opens its first Language camp in Germany, next to the city of Bernau, in the middle of the Black Forest, not far from the most impressive waterfall of the region, the Todtnauer, and right next to the amusement park "Fairy Forest", where one can have a walk around wizards' statues and giant mushrooms!

But we won't need to use magic to convince you to come and learn German or English in our new camp! We will be using the same tricks that helped us to improve the language skills of several thousands of children and teenagers in Switzerland during the last 12 years: classes in the morning, in small groups (maximum 8 students per professor), and a fantastic activity program in the afternoon in the evening…

The large complex where our camp will take place is perfectly fit for these activities: the building was made for the welfare of young visitors and the sport and activity facilities are all around it.

Come and have a wonderful vacation in the nature, learn German or English with a smile on your face and discover some of the most amazing panoramas of Germany!

The large complex is located in the Bernau district Oberlehen, in the middle of the forest. It was open 2 years ago, and especially designed for young people - it is therefore perfectly fit for the security, welfare and amusement of its guests.

Inside, comfortable common rooms are made for classes and activities when participants want to stay inside, while the game & sport fields are just outside the door!

The participants will be served three meals a day in the restaurant area of the complex.

The bedrooms (4 or 2 beds) are equipped with a private bathroom and toilets. Please bring your sleeping bag and towel (for participants coming by plane, please contact us if you cannot bring all this)

Members of the friLingue team are always around the children and teenagers, day and night, to make sure that have a great time and feel comfortable.
