Willkommen zum camp!


Our native German speaking teachers are excited to welcome our campers to their summer adventure - projects, experiments, field trips, crafts & arts await in an immersive German setting. No prior German knowledge necessary. 

This is a bilingual camp, everybody is welcome.

During camp our Kinder will venture to the local parks daily and also go on at least one full day field trip to an off-campus location. Our students will share adventures, develop new friendships, and learn and practice their German language. 

Additionally, our older camp group will learn about a variety of animals and their habitats. They will participate in animal-themed games and activities, and learn about animal conservation. Our younger students will spend a lot of time outdoors and learn about the natural world. They will participate in nature hikes, learn about plants and animals, and create nature-themed art projects. 

Core hours for camp are 9am-3pm, but if you need before or after care, simply select these options during the registration process (see below for more details).

If you have a child 13 years or older, who speaks German, please contact us about our Junior Counselor program!

After registration you will receive a confirmation email with a link. Please use this link to fill in personal information - we are hoping that this will make the registration process easier, especially for those who want to register multiple children and/or for multiple sessions; you only need to fill this form out once.

Unfortunately, we cannot convince our system to allow you to register for multiple sessions in one go, so please be patient and register for each session separately.

If you would like to register for more than one session please register separately by clicking on the following links:

Camp Session II   July 8- July 19 

Camp Session III July 22 - August 2 

Camp Session IV Aug 5 - Aug 16 

As always, you can contact us at any time at or at 773-561-9181 Ext.2.

See you at Camp!/Bis im Camp!
