The Camp Adventure Academy in Walsrode is set in the beautiful Lüneburger Heide national park, between the cities of Hamburg, Bremen and Hannover
With more than 15 hectares of fields, woods, several lakes and even a beach, our northern camp location is the perfect holiday destination for children and teenagers looking for a summer adventure. Our spacious site is made up of several different zones, with various activities to suit every camper. If you want to go kayaking, build bridges, jump high on a water trampoline or glide over the water in a ZORB ball, the Beach and Water Area is for you. If team building activities and high ropes course are more your thing, you should head over to the Survival Area. Whether you are an adventurer or more of a creative spirit, Walsrode has got plenty to offer!
Camp Adventure Academy - Walsrode
International Sports, Language & Adventure Camps
Our campsite is made up of several tent villages, divided into Juniors and Seniors. Each tent village is made up of 20 tents, each of which can accommodate six or seven campers. All tents have a wooden floor and sleeping platform, where you can sleep in comfort after a busy day of activities.
The cozy adventure huts with bunk beds will be shared by four to eight kids - of course girls and boys sleep separately. They are equipped with beds, storage shelving and seating too. Hut accommodation is charged at 120 € per week.
We cook fresh - always! We don't serve bag soup and boring food. Our menus are freshly prepared. Of course, breakfast includes fresh rolls, cold cuts and a wide selection of fruits and cereals. For drinking we have juices, cocoa and tea. During the day, water is available on our water machines with or without bubbles and for the first hunger there is of course always fresh fruit. Lunch and dinner are usually cooked warm - exceptions are the snacks. Of course, water and fresh salads from the buffet are also available with these meals.
Whether you decide to go for the classic Sports, Creative & Adventure Camp, or instead choose to pursue your particular interests and book one of our many extra profiles – all campers have the chance to try out a variety of fun activities in their free time. Our camp is very international, with participants joining us from all over the world, so campers will have the opportunity to get to know other cultures. Our main camp languages are English and German, so you will also be able to brush up your speaking skills!
We offer a wide variety of different activities and each camper can choose their favourites. Get active with sports from football, basketball and table tennis, to BMX, dirtbike, beachvolleyball and swimming. You can even try out the water trampoline or perhaps do some stand up paddleboarding and play water polo. Adventurous campers will love the archery sessions and our amazing high ropes course, which includes a 250 metre zipline (Flying Fox). Water lovers can learn to canoe and kayak on one of the lakes, whilst the creative spirits create their own jewellery and test out new drawing and painting techniques. Even the musicians can follow their passion – guitar playing, singing and dancing are all on offer.
Also in the evenings, there is plenty to enjoy, with our Special Nights. Wellness-Night, Casino Night and Movie Time are just a few of the classics. After a jam-packed day, there is nothing nicer than gathering round the campfire together to share some toasted marshmallows and sing along to a guitar. The daily Clean Up is an important part of camp life. We all play a part in keeping our campsite clean, from duties such as clearing the table and doing the washing up, to cleaning washrooms and tidying your own tent. It is all of our responsibility to make sure that each person feels comfortable in their camp surroundings.
A particular highlight for those who stay two weeks at camp is the excursion on Saturday. Juniors head to Serengeti Park and seniors hit up Heide Park. But if you aren’t a fan of theme parks, don’t worry! You can go swimming at the Verwell Pool instead. On site the choice is yours! Those campers who are staying for two weeks also have the chance to take part in a hike or day trip to Hamburg at the weekend. The excursion to Hamburg costs € 65 extra.
At Serengeti Park, we have the chance to see lions, monkeys and other unusual animals in open air enclosures. The park also has carousels, rides, shows and even a Jeep safari for you to enjoy. Board the double-decker zebra bus and discover a whole new world of animal fun!
Get your adrenalin kick in Heide Park! Hop on the Dive Coaster, Bobbahn, Mountain Rafting or Loop-the-Loop. You have the whole day to try out everything that the park has to offer. You can even check out some interesting shows and interactive activities. You are guaranteed to make some great memories!
Our trip to the Verwell adventure pool in Verden is combined with a trip to the town and is just as exciting as going to the theme park. The pool has a huge water slide, an indoor adventure pool with a current channel and so much more. There is so much aquatic fun to be had!
If you are staying for two weeks, you have the chance to take part in an adventure hike. Set up camp and spend a night under the stars – you don’t get the chance to do that everyday!
Instead of going on the hike, you might like to join our city excursion to Hamburg. This option is particularly designed with international campers in mind, with lots of sightseeing involved, but it might also appeal to German campers who live a little further away. Of course, there is also time for some shopping too! The excursion costs € 65 extra.
Creative, Sports & Adventure
The Creative, Sports & Adventure Camp is the right place for those who want to experience exciting things and want to enjoy creative, sporty and/or adventurous activities. Everyone chooses the program they like according to their personal taste and interests: sometimes spontaneously, when it comes to interesting workshops, funny games in between or a few hours at the lake, but also over several days, when we dive into our project worlds and start activities together.
Staying true to the Camp Adventure spirit, language tuition is not only about improving your language skills, but also about discovering new cultures with your new friends from all over the world. You can choose to add German or English profiles to your camp program and attend twelve 45 minute sessions, in groups of 6 to 14 campers. We also facilitate language learning beyond the classroom, communicating bilingually with all campers in English and German. In all activities, teamers encourage campers to put their language skills into practice and improve their spoken communication.
Learning a language at camp is not at all like learning it in the classroom at school. Language profiles are not spent filling in grammar worksheets, instead the teachers focus on incorporating fun and creativity into their sessions, so that campers can learn in a more playful way, without even realizing that they are working on their language skills. Hopefully the campers can then bring this motivation back to school with them! Native speakers encourage their group to communicate in the foreign language, helping them to hear and absorb the pronunciation and intonation. At the beginning of camp, all campers with the English or German profile will complete a Level Check, so that we can put them into a suitable group, according to their level. That means that both beginners and more advanced participants will be challenged to improve – this is a program for everyone!
Heroes of water wanted! You can see them almost everywhere where there is water... At the edge of the pool in the swimming pool, on high seats on the beach or even on boats at the edge of the non-swimmer area - the lifeguards. Mostly unnoticed they provide security and in emergency situations they intervene and even save lives - real everyday heroes! Now you can be that too. We offer you the opportunity to take the official lifeguard course during your stay with us.
Are you ready for the ultimate outdoor adventure? In our Survival Camp, your specially trained Teamers take you out into the wild to find your next adventure. Survivors head into the forest to learn survival techniques and face the toughest challenges together with their adventurous new friends. From lighting fires and building shelters to crossing rivers, there is lots to learn and discover. At the end of the week, each participant will receive a Survivor certificate, proclaiming them a true survivor, ready to battle with the most difficult of situations. We encourage all campers to take part in each and every activity, but we stick to the Challenge by Choice policy, so that campers never have to take part in an activity if they really do not want to.
If you are a soccer crazy boy or girl, our Soccer profile is just for you! The program is varied, with plenty of football games, tournaments and other cool activities, including some adventurous ones. Improve your technique, stamina, power and tactics, as well as your team skills and spirit. Fun and enjoyment is at the heart of everything we do, even when we get competitive! Soccer profile is not for the pros, but for beginners and intermediate players who want to up their game, so whatever your level, you are welcome on the pitch.
In cooperation with our partner, Reitsportverein Altenwahlingen e.V., participants will experience a creative and adventurous week of horsemanship. While being surrounded by a wide variety of animals such as cows, sheep, rabbits, dogs and cats, you will be trained in all the different aspects of how to take care of and ride a horse. To end the week, you will ride through Germany’s most beautiful valleys in the south of the national park Lüneburger Heide. The riding lessons are led by qualified instructors, with great experience in teaching horseback riding to children and teenagers. Thus we can guarantee an optimal support and training. We don´t recommend this profile for advanced riders. For riding beginners with a bit of experience, the week is an excellent opportunity to improve their horseback riding skills.
Our Husky Camp is exactly what makes little dog lovers' hearts beat faster. It's hard to keep your hands off the smooth, soft fur of the Alaskan huskies. You can already feel it, how it feels to stroke these dogs, who can't get enough of these caresses. And almost incidentally, Alex of Lumirunners teaches you all about responsible handling of the fur noses. She shows how to deal with these bundles of energy, how to raise and care for them. And the participating children are allowed, although under supervision, to put everything directly into practice on the peaceful huskies themselves.
Small trekking tours are also on the program, as well as romping together in the water, because both lead to a smile on the face of child and husky... Learning "canine", the body language of dogs, is one of the joint activities with the huskies that are on the curriculum. Tug of war to test their strength together is also part of it.
The fishing camp is just right for you if you want to experience nature in silence once. Together we will prepare you for the fishing exam. We will teach you about fish lore and fishing techniques and you can try out the things you have learned while fishing at our fishpond. Our team will also show you how to gut fish and how to cook them deliciously after you catch them. We will also inform you about animal and species protection. Even if you already have a little more fishing experience, you will certainly enjoy the course. We invite you to spend pleasant hours fishing together with the group.
For the dance enthusiasts among us, we finally have the appropriate course offer. In our additional dancing course, we will show you different street dance styles and work with you on your own choreography that matches the hip-hop beat you choose. In 12 lessons of 45 minutes each, we will try out new steps together with you, study a performance and show you the fun that rhythmic movement can have.
If you enjoy crafting and creating, then you will surely have fun at our Creative Camp. Our international team will craft and decorate many beautiful things with you. We design jewelry and make new things from old things in the so-called upcycling. Together we create artworks on canvas and from natural materials such as wood and stone. If you want to live out your creativity or discover something new, you will find the right place for that here.
Snior Plus/ Leadership (15-17 years)
We know you have been waiting for this! – More cool programs for campers aged 15+
Do you think camp is cool, but would you rather spend your time with other young people same age from all over the world? Then our new Senior Plus Program is just right for you and you will even get some nice privileges: exclusive night action such as flashlight canoeing or moonlight climbing, a later curfew than all other campers and you will be accommodated in tents that are specially reserved for your age group or in our academy house including your own chill-out area. Choose your favorite profile, for example our Creative & Adventure Camp with a huge variety of daily changing creative and outdoor activities or one of our language camps in case you would like to polish up your German or English language skills, together with native speakers. You will then attend your chosen profile every morning together with the senior campers. Or you can opt for the Leadership Camp, which also takes place in the morning but is offered exclusively to the Senior Plus age group of 15-17 years. The content is about developing leadership qualities entirely in English. Whether it is a presentation course or a workshop about self-reflection and team leading – in this profile we will present you with lots of exciting content that is guaranteed to help you advance your personal development! Important: a crucial part of our leadership profile is the 3-day overnight hike that takes you to the North Sea and comes with quite a few tasks. The perfect opportunity for those of you who are looking for a new “once in a lifetime” challenge! Of course, our philosophy “No drugs, no alcohol – just fun!” and our “Digital Detox” approach of handing out mobile phones and electronic devices only during siesta time also apply here. That way you will have the rest of the day to yourself and your “peers” and make friends that may last a lifetime!
Upon successful completion of the program, all participants receive a Leadership Award. The program is carried out in English and so participants should have fairly strong language skills.
International Camp Counselor in Training (ICIT)
Have you already been in camp as a participant and wish to be a teamer (counselor) after this experience? Then this program is the perfect opportunity for you if you are between 17-19 years.
After successfully completing two weeks of training in English you will receive a certificate that verifies you are trained as an International Camp Counselor Assistant (junior staff member). In addition you will participate in a first aid course. With this qualification you can be placed as a Camp Counselor Assistant (from 17 years up) or as a Senior staff members (from 18 years up) at our camps.
As most ICIT’s have participated in our leadership program and are seeking a position in one of our camps they will get the chance to be placed in a camp session for one or more weeks. Two ICIT’s will be responsible for two tent groups, supported by a Senior staff member. If the training has been successfully completed, our new ICIT’s will join the camps ideally right after the training. That implies the fantastic chance to be part of Camp Adventure for several weeks.
For all who have been campers in our camps before and who are under 21 years, the participation in the ICIT program is obligatory. We want our teamers to grow from the role of being a camper to the role of being a responsible Teamer. For every ICIT applicant a skype interview is required.

* There are many "non-typical" days with special programs as well. We match the program according to the weather and mood! In addition, for various reasons, there can always be spontaneous adjustments to the daily schedule, so this only serves as a guide.
This is voluntary for Juniors and Seniors! From chasing frogs to jogging, yoga or fitness every morning we will have different programs for our early birds to choose from.
Our breakfast always includes fresh bread and buns as well as various cold meats, cheeses and spreads (jam, honey, chocolaty spreads etc.). There will also be a rich selection of cereals and fruits. Of course drinks are included.
Now we will take some time to keep our camp tidy and clean. Whether communal service (doing dishes, cleaning the kitchen) or tidying up your own tent, we will ensure our camp is comfortable for everyone.
Lunch is composed of a warm meal and a salad bar. Plenty of water is always served with meals and you will dine together with your Teamer (we always provide vegetarian and pork-free menu options).
Chill out on your own, in the community room or on the comfortable wooden benches outside. For sure you can take a little nap, read a book, write a letter or chat with others. Your Teamer will offer you little things to do, but you can also just hang around with the other campers. This way, you will get some time to relax and recharge your “batteries” for the rest of the day.
Do you want to chill out while drawing and writing a letter or play more active sports? You will have the chance to choose from various options.
We are self-catering and our masterchef prepares delicious food with the cooking courses (we always provide vegetarian and pork-free menu options).
The evening program is variable and depends on weather and the fitness of the group. Camp games with all kids, or our famous ‘Special Nights’- anything is possible. These activities will always take place with all kids together – also the two-week participants – so we try to ensure a varied program.
We really want all our kids to get enough rest and sleep. Therefore our Teamers will bring them to bed with our very special Camp Adventure routine. The kids will get the chance to reflect on the day and then slowly doze off while listening to music or a bed time story.

You can choose between our collective transfer for 75 € one way and a private shuttle for 350 € one way.
With this shuttle all children are first picked up from their exit right after the baggage claim and then brought to the camp together. This can lead to waiting times.
Our team will be at the airport from 10 am and will collect all arriving children. For parents who accompany their children to Hamburg Airport themselves, we offer a central meeting point (at the rocket) at McDonald's Restaurant at Hamburg Airport. Depending on the number of participants, the transfer can take place by bus, train or car. The shuttle leaves the airport at 4 pm with all children and carers in the direction of the camp.
All flights arriving later than 3 pm can no longer be considered for this transfer. In this case we recommend that you book our private transfer.
If your flight arrives before 10 am, we will need to send an extra person to the airport to pick up your child at the exit right after the baggage claim. This also applies to the return trip if the flight departs later than 6 pm. For this service we charge 50 € 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.
Shuttle Landing Time Departure Time Costs one way Airport Hamburg at the gate 10 am - 3 pm 2 - 6 pm 75 € Airport Hamburg meeting point McDonald's (at the rocket) 2 pm 12:30 pm 55 € Airport Hanover 10 am - 3 pm 2 - 6 pm 75 €
Please note the different airline regulations regarding children travelling alone. If your child travels as UM (unaccompanied minor), we will charge 20 € extra for the additional effort.
This transfer is recommended if the landing time is later than 3 pm on the day of arrival, departure before 2 pm on the day of departure, the arrival or departure on other days or if you do not want your children to wait at the airport. Up to two children can share this transfer.
