Adventure and Creativity Camp Walsrode
The International Adventure and Creativity Camp Walsrode is located at the beautiful Lueneburg Heath, close to Hamburg, Bremen and Hannover. Camp spans an area of over 15 hectares, with vast meadows, forests and even a few small lakes with their own beaches. We are proud to have created such a holiday paradise for children and adolescents. The whole area is divided into a number of areas which all offer exciting activities.
Whether you go kayaking, bridge or raft building, enjoy yourself on the water trampoline or in a water walking ball: everything is possible in the “Beach & Water Area“. Next to it, the “Survival Area“ offers team building activities, including climbing and a high ropes course. It is the ideal area for all adventurers and creative minds!
We see to it that the nationalities in each house are very diverse, so that you are able to speak German or English all the time and learn to master the challenges that the daily life on camp has in store for you. Nonetheless, when you arrive with a friend, we will allow the two of you to be accommodated in the same accommodation.
No matter if you attend our all-time favourite, the „Sports, Creativity & Adventure Camp“, or decide to book one of our many specials: follow your interests and enjoy yourself during the exciting and diverse activities. On camp we speak German and English. It is the ideal place to get to know people from foreign cultures and brush up on your English language skills at the same time.
You can choose from a wide variety of things to do and attend your favourite activities. We offer sports activities ranging from football, basketball, ping pong, BMX, dirt jump mountain biking and beach volleyball to swimming sessions in the lake. Even better, you are welcome to enjoy our water trampoline or use our equipment to play water polo or go stand-up paddle surfing. All adventurers are looking forward to our archery range and exciting high-ropes course, including a 250 meter long zip-line (Flying Fox). All aquatics enthusiasts may be interested in learning how to manoeuvre across the lake swiftly with a canoe or kayak.
If you are more of an artistic mind, you may enjoy yourself designing your own jewellery or painting or sketching with new techniques. All aspiring musicians are invited to try out playing the guitar, singing or dancing. You are free to test everything!
During the evenings we offer diverse forms of entertainment. “Special Nights” such as Wellness Night, Casino Night or Movie Time have all reached legendary camp status over the last years. After an adventurous day at camp, there is nothing like settling down around the camp fire, preparing your own twist bread or roasting marshmallows, listening to (or playing) the guitar, humming a song.
The free-time programme is organised and led by our English and German speaking supervisors. There will always be a ratio of eight students per supervisor. Our supervisors will know ‘their’ students, just as you will get to know ‘your’ supervisor. They are always there for you to talk to, whether you feel unwell, have a question, or simply fancy a little chat.
Furthermore, we have a 24-hour emergency hotline and we will react to your calls immediately, should there be a bigger problem.

One of the camp highlights are our day trips for all participants, which take place every Wednesday. All Junios will set off for the Serengeti Park, all Seniors will visit Heide-Park. Should amusement parks not be your cup of tea, you can spend the day at the waterpark “Verwell” instead – the choice is up to you. All participants who stay at camp at least two weeks may additionally book the Adventure Hike or the day trip to Hamburg. This year the following excursions are available:
- Serengeti Park
- Waterpark "Verwell"
- Adventure Hike
Arrivals to and departures from the International Adventure and Creativity Camp Walsrode are scheduled for Sundays. Your parents will either bring you to camp by car, or you will travel by plane to Hamburg or Hannover. If you arrive or depart by plane, we recommend that you book our transfer service to/from Walsrode when making your camp reservation. Transfer service ensures that you will be picked up and taken to camp, so that you won’t need to worry about anything.
If, due to your age, you have booked a UM service (UM = Unaccompanied Minor) with your airline, you also have to book our UM service accordingly – in addition to our general transfer service. This is necessary as handling unaccompanied minors at the airport is more complicated and time-consuming.
Please organise your arrival and departure in a way that you arrive between 10:00 AM and 04:00 PM on arrival day and depart between 12:00 noon and 04:00 PM on departure day.

What your forerunners have to say
"Creativity Camp Walsrode was super fun. I could really relax and be creative, spending my time outdoors. And, in the afternoons, it was a nice change to go swimming in the camp lakes."
"At Camp Walsrode I could choose all those activities I've always wanted to do. We saw wild animals at Serengeti Park and going on the Adventure Hike was a tremendous experience. I have never spent a more diverse time during my holidays."
