What our students are saying

Alpadia Berlin-Werbellinsee German Summer Camp - gallery

I would like to THANK YOU Alpadia for the unforgettable times my daughter had in Berlin. She was so excited to be a member of a multicultural, multi-language environment that it was so difficult for me to convince her to flight back home.
The teachers and all the staff in the campus were very helpful, with broad knowledge of their aspects and always supportive to all kids participating. She enjoyed the classes and she enjoyed his ability to translate for the juniors from English to German and vice versa and be supportive to the other team mates.
Last but most serious of all, my daughter realizes her high level in German and reinstate her willing to come to Germany for her bachelor studies. All these come from the effort demonstrated from all your staff either administrative or teaching.
I certainly recommend the program to any parent willing to sent his kid in a safe enjoyable and effective environment to learn a foreign language.

As with most of everything in life, the sooner, the better. Spring and summer camps are busy periods, and families prepare for these holidays well in advance, so we recommend not to leave it too late so we can help you customize your experience as much as possible.  

Alpadia camps are very popular and have limited capacity to ensure the best service we can provide. Also, we offer promotions and other advantages for those who start planning ahead. If you are interested in specific accommodations and want to book our premium activities before they are fully booked, contact us, and we will start planning an unforgettable summer camp.
