Youth Programme Campus Bodensee
Language courses for young people from all over the world
Where the Alps are bordered by the largest lake in Germany and the three German-speaking countries of Austria, Switzerland and Germany adjoin each other, our young students spend unforgettable language holidays with peers from all over the world. You will experience an ideal combination of intensive and joyful learning and exciting and versatile leisure activities.
The groups are divided according to their language level. Besides the language training the students have the possibility to choose between an active or creative programme in the afternoon. In the morning they learn in groups of maximum eleven participants and are taught exclusively by young native speakers. The accommodation is possible in host families as well as in the youth hostel Lindau including full board.
Our support staff will devise an extensive and varied programme: sporty, leisurely, creative, interesting and will also be both guide as well as contact partner for any questions.
Every week we organise one half-day excursion, one whole day excursions and activities at the weekends, daily leisure programme.

What is the Campus Bodensee?
Situated on the island of Lindau on Lake Constance, our Campus Bodensee offers the ideal conditions for learning with fun, great leisure activities and unforgettable holidays with friends from all over the world.
Our Campus consists of professionally equipped modern learning tents, class, art and music rooms with a view of Lake Constance.
Lunch is also held on the Campus, as well as evening events and other activities.
1. What is the difference between German ACTIVE and German CREATIVE?
Both programs will be based on experiential and outdoor education. Deutsch aktiv will have its main focus on sportive activities (team, trend and watersports) beside specialized theoretical lessons. Deutsch kreativ will have its emphasis on creative learning activities through creative crafts and workshops, film & photography and arts – always accompanied by our pedagogic team.
2. Do students already have to pick their specific afternoon program (aktiv or kreativ) in their enrollment?
Students have to pick their afternoon program only for their first week. The afternoon program for the following weeks of their stay will be decided once they are in Lindau according to the student’s preferences.
3. Where will the Campus Bodensee 2017 take place?
Our junior program will take place right on the island of Lindau and only a couple of meters away from Lake Constance. Lessons will take place in professionally equipped learning camps on a sports ground and alternately in indoor classrooms of a Lindauian school. Beside classrooms, we will have sport, creative, music rooms and a hall at our disposal and a real nice Campus area easily reachable by the city bus from all areas of Lindau.
