DANK Haus Kinderschule Sommercamp for kids ages 4-12 is a fun way to maintain exposure to German language and culture while school is on break ... or to get a first taste of it. In 2019 we want to focus on ways kids can give back, be communal and kind. We will run a mini food donation drive, visit a local food pantry, host a lemonade stand and decide on a charitable organization to donate proceeds to, ... and so much more. Stay tuned for updates in Spring 2019.

Sommercamp welcomes 20 kids per week and has a 7:1 child-instructor ratio (2 instructors, 1 assistant). 

Before & after care is available from 8-9am and 3-5pm. Flexible registration: sign up for one or two weeks.
