german courses for children in Munich


Summer Camp

Learn German @ Munich Young & Fun

Ages 7 - 14

This summer camp with German language classes for children is 50 km south of Munich in Josefstal, a traditional Bavaria village in the Alp mountains. The village is very popular with German kids & teens, who like to spend their summer holidays here. You´ll meet some of them at our summer camp: they stay on site with you and best of all, they do all the after class activities together with you. So you can test your German right away! Your school is a kind of college 800 m above sea level, and the scenery is fantastic. Every week we organize at least 2 excursions to Munich, maybe the most beautiful city in Germany.
