German and Sports Camp in Berlin

Summer Camp

Learn German @ Berlin Watersports

Ages 13 - 17

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 WallMuseumsinsel ...
