English or French language camp for children aged 10 to 14 or 16
At our LEOlingo overnight camps everything is there: the language, the accommodation, the food and lots of fun. The children and counsellors sleep in tents, youth hostels, cabins, guesthouses or even in a castle.
Coming from a variety of countries, such as Canada, New Zealand and the UK, our native speakers provide a varied programme of language games, songs, funny sketches, short dramas, creative activities and of course, the popular sports from each country (Baseball, Rugby, Cricket, American Football, etc.).
In the evenings, the children can expect a programme with campfires, scavenger hunts, a disco, night hikes and more.
With the overnight camps, children can choose between a classic camp or a special camp:
Our classic camps offer a diverse programme of language, sport and creative activities – ideal for children who don’t want to focus on a particular area. There are classic camps running throughout the summer in English and French.
At our special camps, the children choose a particular focus, which is then incorporated into the classic language programme, either every day or on one set day. Special activities include horse riding, climbing, canoeing, sports etc. We work together with experienced professionals who teach the children everything they need to know about the respective area.
We recommend overnight camps for kids aged 10 to 14 or 16 years. The French camps are meant for children from 11 to 16 years (with previous knowledge). The groups of these overnight camps are there at the same time as the groups of the English camps.
Here is an example programme for an overnight camp. The children are split into different age groups. Every counsellor is responsible for their own individual group.

A day at a special camp:
Basically a day at a special camp is structured similar to a day at a classic camp. In most special camps we are doing our special programm on one day in the middle of the week. In some special camps the kids have about 2 hours for the special every day. For example at the riding camp.
