Language and Sports Camp Regen

At the international Language & Sports Camp in Regen we value language acquisition as much as we value sports activities. Innovative and creative teaching concepts are combined with a monumental sports and outdoor programme. Our international mother tongue camp staff ensure that you are well looked after and help you pick up the language during and after class - without even noticing.

Residence accommodation at Camp Regen

The international Language & Sports Camp Regen is located at the southern foothills of the Bavarian Forest, a stone’s throw away from the local national park. Not only is this camp perfectly equipped for exciting sports and free time activities, its location also offers the opportunities to spend thrilling day trips in the Bavarian capital or the beautiful surrounding landscapes. While attending camp, you will either be accommodated at the “ARBERLAND Akademie”, where 2 to 4 participants share a room, at the “BLSV Sportcamp”, where 2 – 6 participants share a room, or even at one of the camp’s spacious 12 bed block houses. Each house is equipped with its own bathroom and shower as well as a common room. All across camp you will find great sports and free time facilities, such as billard tables, foosball tables or Air Hockey. At our BBQ area we will spend relaxed evenings with the whole group.

As we offer full board to our students, you will begin the day with a healthy breakfast. You can choose what you would like to eat from a buffet. At noon everybody will have lunch together, before the afternoon activities begin. There will always be a hot meal for lunch or dinner and we invite you to fill your plate with food from the buffet. However, depending on the activity programme of the day, you may be invited to pack some lunch to take with you. Drinks and fruit are always available for everybody. We believe you know best what food you need to make it through the day.

And, of course, we are not ignorant to special diets. Please let us know in your application whether you are a vegetarian, a vegan or have any other dietary requirement. We will do our best to accommodate your preferences and cater for your individual needs.

More about Camp Regen

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.

Standard Language Courses:
Your intensive language course will always consist of 4 lessons a day on 5 days per week. At the beginning of every week, each student will take a language placement test, which will give your teacher insight in the level of your language proficiency. Learning to use the language actively is the main aim of the lessons. Our teachers create their own motivating, cultural and original lesson plans. They can be about a whole range of topics that are taken from “real life” in the form of discussions, role plays, interviews and other active elements. Our teachers are native speakers. That means that they do not only speak the language fluently, but they have an ingrained understanding of their native culture. They also have experience in imparting their language to students from foreign countries. We teach from levels A0 (beginner without previous knowledge) up to B2 (Upper Intermediate) in accordance with CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
German language course Goethe

In addition to the standard language course on camp, you may book a Goethe-course. Over the course of two weeks you will take 10 additional German lessons in order to prepare you for the exam “Fit in Deutsch 1” (A1 – A2) by the Goethe-Institut. The certificate you receive is globally recognised and will be sent to you by mail 3 weeks after the exam takes place. This is due to the exams being graded at one of the Goehte Centres. In order to attend the Goethe-course, you should have been learning German for at least one year.

English language course TOEFL ®
When learning English on camp, you may decide to book an additional TOEFL® course. Over the course of two weeks you will take 10 additional English lessons in order to prepare you for the TOEFL® exam. This “Test of English as a Foreign Language” is the world’s most renowned language exam to assess scholar and academic English skills. After sitting this exam, you will always receive a certificate indicating your exact level of English according to the international CEFR standards.
It is our policy to always offer a range of activities and programmes to our students. All early birds among you will be thrilled to take part in our voluntary - yet legendary "Morning Sports". Jogging, Yoga or Fitness exercises will give you a boost to start the day. In the afternoons we invite you to play football, basketball, volleyball or tennis on the various courts and grounds on camp. If you prefer more adventurous activities, why not try archery, AeroBall or walking on the slackline parcours? One of our major projects will be the Raft Building Exercise. It requires you to work as a team and construct a raft that won't sink. Your results will be tested when we embark on a little maiden trip across the water.
However, the absolute highlight on camp is our 20 meter outdoor climbing wall. There are a total of 8 routes which take you to the top. Of course our climbing coaches will secure and assist you at all times.
In the evenings we offer you great activities as well: club night, talent show, bonfire, BBQ and a scary torch-lit night hike are ready to surprise you!

To give you a SAMPLE of what one week at Camp Regen may look like, we provide you with this Camp Regen Sample Programme.

Please note: This document does not represent the actual programme. It may not take place in this fashion definitely. Many circumstances may lead to the programme being altered or certain activities being swapped or dropped alltogether. You will receive the final programme schedule after having enrolled for camp.

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 highlights for all participants, who attend camp for at least two weeks, are the weekly day trips. Together with the other international participants you will travel to Munich,Regensburg or Passau where you take part in a city tour, discover the most important sights and indulge in a bit of shopping. Or you can go on an adventure hike with your new friends. You will stay one night at a mountain cabin and marvel at the sunrise on top of the mountains. Other adventures can be found at the silver mine at Bodenmais or at the summer tobogganing course.

Arrivals at the International Language & Sports in Regen always take place on Sundays. Departures always take place on Saturdays. Your parents will either bring you to the camp site by car, or you will travel by plane to Munich, or by train to Regen station. If you arrive or depart by plane, we recommend that you book our transfer service to/from Regen at right when you make 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 you arrive in Regen by train, transfer service is included. 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 arrange your arrival and departure in a way that you arrive at the airport 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 Camp Regen looks like...
Organising your free time on camp

All free time activities on camp are put together by our experienced team of camp supervisors. They are in charge of all activities and provide guidance and supervision. It won't get boring on camp.

Our camp staff can rely on its long-time experience. They know which activities will be the most exciting and enjoyable.

Our teamers are here for you

Our teamers are always approachable. And we can guarantee that there are enough teamers on camp that no student or their needs will be overlooked.

We guarantee as well that the ratio of participants' numbers to camp staff is well balanced. The supervisor-participant ratio of 1:8 (free time) and 1:12 (language course) is keenly observed.

Regen is not the camp you are looking for?

There may be many obstacles which can prevent you from coming to camp. The location may be to far away from home. Possible dates may be unconvenient or something else makes attending just impossible.

In these cases we would like to offer another camp from our portfolio. Maybe one of them is the one for you!

Nicole, 13 Camp Regen

"When we went canoeing, I was a bit shy at first. But the teamers encouraged me and it was actually very nice! It was great to paddle along the river with all the others. It was like going on a real adventure."

Marc, 14 Camp Regen

„The variety of sports activities was huge! I could try something new every day. Even though I never did many of those sports before, it was great to give each of them a try.“
