Come with us and visit "The Land of a Thousand Mountains"! 

Our new Sports & Language Camp is situated right in the middle of the beautiful Sauerland, a holiday region of geographical superlatives. 2.700 mountains at an altitude of 400 m plus, 5 huge artificial lakes, 17 reservoirs and dams and the biggest connected cave system in Germany are just waiting to be discovered.

The youth-orientated set up of the camp and superb sports facilities featuring an exposed boathouse at the nearby lake “Sorpesee” leave nothing to be desired. Dedicated to 10 to 16 year olds this camp is perfect for those children and teenagers looking for an international environment to improve their language skills either in German or English in combination with plenty of free time activities and excursions to discover the beautiful surroundings.

Location

The camp is located near Arnsberg, a picturesque little country town only an hour drive away from Dortmund. Built by the North Rhine-Westphalian Sports Association in order to provide a place for young people to meet and exercise during vacation time, the camp site just offers everything your heart desires. Those great facilities include an indoor swimming pool, a perfectly equipped sports hall, numerous playing fields, beach volleyball courts, indoor and outdoor climbing walls and even a bowling alley. All campers are accommodated in the "Holiday Village" in two-storey buildings sleeping up to 8 students. Each house is equipped with private bathrooms as well as a common room.

Activities & Excursions
You will be thrilled by our fantastic multi activity program. So, whether you are an athlete, an adventurer or more into creative stuff – there is bound to be something just for you. Apart from taking part in common sports such as basketball, beach volleyball or soccer you might want to show off how good you are when it comes to more exotic sports like biathlon with laser guns. And what about proving to your friends that you are always up for your personal best on the mountain bike course? But you will also learn about rather unknown activities such as cross boccia or kin-ball. As the camp is located in close vicinity to a lake we spend quite some time on the water when the sun is shining. Are you up for some stand up paddling, windsurfing or canoeing? Our relaxed days at the lake are always something special, crowned by a yummy BBQ before we head back to camp. We even make the most of rainy days as we have got such great indoor facilities. Explore the swimming pool by attending our aqua fun sessions or give it a go at the indoor climbing wall. You are seeking for more adventures? Prepare yourself for some real outdoor activities. Bridge building, archery, crossbow shooting, climbing, geocaching or team building. It’s your choice! Or just get crafty, improve your circus skills or show us your talent in one of our dance & drama workshops. And when the sun goes down there is still more to come. Campfire, night hike, disco, talent show... As you can see it’s worth staying for a little longer simply to have more time to explore everything on offer.
For all those students staying over the weekend we offer some awesome excursions to explore the surroundings. You might want to go for a stroll around the historic city center of Arnsberg to get hold of some souvenirs or
maybe you are more into discovering one of the ancient cave systems? You love theme parks? Come and join us for a great day out at “Fort Fun”. Check out all the roller coasters, white-water rides, summer tobogganing and let
them entertain you by visiting one of the numerous shows.

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 develop 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 Hachen 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 in 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

Even if you want to improve your German language skills or are just beginning to learn the language, you are in good hands in our new camp in the Sauerland. We offer courses at different levels. Both total beginners and advanced students will be divided into a suitable group according to their existing knowledge. As with our English courses, the focus is on conversation. Interactive lessons ensure that you expand your vocabulary and consolidate your grammar. You can also test the vocabulary you have learned during leisure activities with your new German friends.
