Oskar lernt Englisch has been offering English language camps in Germany since 2004 for children between the ages of 6 and 15 looking to gain confidence in their English. We fuse structured English lessons with active and informal settings. We know that learning isn’t just something you do in a classroom!

No matter how big or small, how short or tall, we are all born with an insatiable curiosity, driving us to explore and discover the world around us. At Oskar lernt Englisch we want to make room for the adventurous spirit that is all too often constrained by stuffy classrooms and overly standardized learning. Instead, we take our campers to climb through treetops, windsurf the waves of the North sea, and play capture the flag to the sound of cowbells ringing through the black forest. We’ll also jump into a variety of creative processes, get groovy with some cool dance moves, or push the limits of storytelling through the medium of film - all in English of course! We hope to inspire and create an accessible environment to learn English in, combining the expert knowledge of English speakers who are energetic, empathetic, and culturally diverse with an adventure-packed environment. We don’t just want to teach English, but also make memories with new friends! :)

Camp life can be pretty demanding, which is why we try to accommodate and provide for your needs while you’re out there swinging in the tree-tops or learning to shoot arrows like Robin Hood.
