Welcome to the Bayerischer Wald, one of the most beautiful holiday regions in Southern Germany!

We offer you superb Language Camps in cooperation with the Bavarian Sports Association. Our innovative approach to language courses combined with a wide range of sports and outdoor activities makes for the perfect holiday experience that you will never forget! Our international staff team will look after you at all times making sure that everyone is happy. They create a unique atmosphere at camp making it easy for everyone to find new friends and to practice both, the English and German language outside the classroom.

Location
Our camp is situated close to the historic town of Regen, starting point for many tourists to explore Germany’s biggest national park "Bayerischer Wald". Depending on the dates, you will either stay at the "Sports Camp Regen" or at the "ARBERLAND Academy". Comfortable bedrooms sleeping 2 to 6 people or rustic wooden cabins with en-suite bathrooms shared between 12 campers will make the perfect home during your holidays. Both houses feature great sports facilities as well as common rooms to relax at the end of an eventful day. Have a chat with your friends, listen to some music or play a game of billiard, table football or darts. We have got it all! Please refer to details to find out where you will be accommodated during your stay.

We want to advise parents and guardians that there may well be ticks on site as this camp is located in a tick risk area. We do recommend the tick vaccination to camp participants.
Activities & Excursions
Our sports and outdoor programs are guaranteed to provide you with plenty of new experiences alongside your Language course. Just try out the various activities on offer and make new friends! For a perfect start of the day why not waking up by joining our famous “morning sports” such as fitness classes, running or yoga. If you prefer to turn around in bed again we won’t stop you. During your free time we offer traditional sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball or tennis utilizing our great sports facilities including a gym as well as athletic fields. Prove your skills on our slackline track or try out trend sports such as aero ball. You are more the adventurous type? Then you should go for archery or raft building. The sports camp also has an amazing 20 m high climbing wall, purpose built at the wide span of a bridge. There are eight different climbing paths for both beginners and advanced climbers. Take on the challenge assisted by our experienced and trained coaches. The local swimming pool offers lots of water fun on hot summer days including an 85m long water slide. Not to forget about our great evening entertainment including campfires, BBQs, discos, a talent show plus a torch-lit hike. Just be part of it!

For sure we want you to explore beautiful Bavaria while you spend your holidays with us. We will take you to the nearby National Park and if you are staying for two weeks or longer you have got a great choice of two weekend excursions which are already included in the price. Get the chance to see the impressive city of Munich and enjoy the perfect combination of culture and sightseeing and the possibility for you to shop and relax in between visiting the most popular tourist attractions the city has to offer. Or join us for an amazing hike up the mountains including an overnight stay in a typical alpine hut, a summit climb during sunrise, a visit of the local silver mine as well as some summer tobogganing down the hills. It’s your choice!

Language Courses & Program

The ability to communicate in different languages is a priceless gift and enables you to make friends with other campers from all across the globe. Why not developing your language skills during your holidays? All our Language courses are solely carried out by native speakers in internationally mixed classes with no more than 12 students. At the beginning of the stay your level will be assessed by our experienced teachers to ensure that you are placed in the right class, according to your language abilities. Our courses comprise 20 units of 45 minutes per week but no worries – our lessons are not like being at school. We focus on fun and interactive education. The use of modern teaching methods in and outside the classroom, incorporating topics that are suitable for the different age groups and levels guarantees a positive outcome and a pleasant classroom experience. At Regen we offer different English and German Courses.

English Classic

Improve your language skills in a fun way by attending our interactive Classic Courses. They are designed to match your holidays. Nevertheless, they are intense and efficient. Our teachers put a strong focus on oral practice and make sure that you build up your confidence and improve your communication skills in a playful way and without even noticing. You will breathe new vocabulary and internalize the right pronunciation by using the language and not by memorizing boring work sheets. At camp, you will always be around our English speaking staff, who encourage you to put your language skills in practice inside and outside the classroom. Attending camp will give you a boost of self-confidence and fresh motivation for your English lessons at school. Promised!

English TOEFL®

Apart from our Classic Courses we also offer two-week TOEFL® Courses. The Test Of English as a Foreign Language is the most widely respected English language test in the world. At the end of the course you will take an exam to achieve the TOEFL® certificate. The great thing is that you can’t fail the test. It just measures your ability to use and understand English as it’s read, written, heard and spoken according to the CEFR – the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1 to C2). Attending this special course is definitely worth it as you will receive a certificate that not only proves your level of English but is also accepted at schools worldwide in case you consider to spend a school year abroad.

Attending the TOEFL® Course means that you will benefit from 10 additional units on top of your 40 hours of classic English tuition. During those additional lessons, we focus on grammar exercises and practice important parts of the exam such as reading and listening comprehension and we will also use sample tests to get you well prepared for the exam.

German Classic

Regen is the ideal place to learn German! Many students attend camp to extend their learning into the holidays with fun and interactive sessions. No worries if you do not speak any German yet. We offer classes at different levels from complete beginner to advanced. Similar to our English Classic Courses we focus on conversation and incorporate lots of fun activities and games to build up your vocabulary and strengthen your grammar. Join in and take the chance to improve your German, not only through our interesting lessons, but also by interacting with other campers during your free time. With so many Germans staying at camp, the opportunities to speak the language are endless.

German GOETHE

For those of you who are staying for at least two weeks we also offer our Goethe courses. Those specific programs are suitable for students who have been learning German for at least one year at school and comprise 10 additional units, preparing you for the Goethe certificate „Fit in Deutsch 1“(A1 - A2). The Goethe-Institute’s German language examinations correspond to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and are internationally recognized. Please note that bookings need to be submitted no later than six weeks prior to arrival at camp in case you wish to take the Goethe exam.

Climbing Course

In summer, we offer something truly special at camp! A climbing course for both beginners and advanced climbers. Once you have mastered some basic knots, climbing and abseil techniques our certified coaches will encourage you to take the challenge to climb our 20 m high climbing wall. Purpose built at the wide span of a bridge this unique feature offers 8 different routes and various degrees of difficulty. Campers aged 14+ can even get the Toprope Climbing Certificate of the German Alpine Club DAV at no extra cost. Our younger participants will be awarded with a climbing certificate of the Bavarian Sports Association at the end of the course.

Soccer Course

Our soccer camp is specifically designed for all keen players, no matter if they are already semi-professional members of a club or just playing for fun. It comprises 10 training sessions of 90 minutes each, carried out by licensed coaches of the Bavarian Sports Association. This high-end soccer coaching will help you to master fundamental techniques including dribbling, passing and tackling in a fun setting. Upon arrival, our experienced coaches will assess all participants and divide them into different teams according to their age and existing skills. The coaching will take place on different soccer pitches at the sports camp, the local soccer club and in our sports hall. Our soccer camp is not only about technique, endurance and strength. We also provide you with all tools needed to improve your skills and to enjoy your favorite sports in a fun environment and safe surrounding. Training also incorporates important aspects such as fair play and team spirit. During the stay at camp all players will develop their technical, tactical and mental skills whilst playing friendly matches in international teams, sometimes even versus local soccer clubs! We provide all equipment. You only need to bring your own sports gear and soccer boots.

For parents who accompany their children to Munich Airport themselves, we offer a central meeting point at McDonald's Restaurant at Munich Airport. Depending on the number of participants, the transfer can take place by bus, train or car. The shuttle leaves the airport at 5 pm with all children and carers in the direction of the camp.

This also applies to the return trip if the flight departs later than 4 pm. For this service we charge € 60 extra, in addition to the normal transfer costs. These costs cover the service of receiving your child earlier/checking him in later and looking after him.
