German & Water sports in Berlin
The summer camp is located on one of the beautiful lakes that surround Berlin, in the little village of Blossin. This camp has fantastic water sports facilities - with lots of canoes, sailing boats and surfing equipment. When German courses finish, in the afternoon, we go canoeing, sailing or surfing. And of course there will be beach parties and barbecues by the lakeside, too. Berlin is only 30 km away: Every week we arrange 2 excursions to Berlin and you´ll get to see all the highlights: Berlin´s neues Downtown: Potsdamer Platz, the Berlin Wall, Museumsinsel ...
The water sports centre has a campus with several little houses on it, where students live. The 10 classrooms are in a central building, and there is a cafeteria.
Additional facilities: harbour with boats, surf boards, kayaks, canoes, sailing boats; beach, indoor gym, fitness studio, bicycles, beach volleyball field and soccer field.
The standard course focuses on grammar work and the development of oral and written skills through entertaining and motivational learning activities. Our dynamic teaching approach based on an active learning process stimulates young students, encourages their interest in language and improves their knowledge of German culture
