KidsCampAmerica is a provider of world-class English immersion day and overnight camps in Germany. Founded by a husband and wife team in 2011 KidsCampAmerica remains a family owned and operated business dedicated to giving children in Germany the opportunity to learn and practice English in a fun, safe, and supportive environment. Their first summer camp began in Frankfurt when Stuart Taines, a certified English and Sports teacher had the idea to start up a summer camp like the ones he went to as a child and worked at as a teenager in California. Along with his wife, Sarah Taines, a business woman whose prior work experience was based at the German Stock Exchange (EUREX) the team has grown KidsCampAmerica from their first small camp of 30 children in Frankfurt am Main to camps in Berlin, Munich, Wiesbaden, Freiburg, and Dreieich serving thousands of kids each year during the Spring, Summer, and Fall holidays.
KidsCampAmerica is a full immersion English Day Camp - we are not an English school. Our early morning lessons are planned by our native English teachers in order to provide kids of all English speaking ability the best camp experience we can provide. We do awesome group projects - like bridge building contests - science experiments, group competitions and games. We write news-stories and perform them, we sings songs, and do skits. We play crazy games and make friends.
We have had many native speakers come to our camp and all enjoy it. We even have campers coming from the United States or England and taking part in our camps during the summer. They always love it. We offer the best camp activities and the best part is: You get to choose your own! Plan your own day, make friends and have fun at KidsCampAmerica!
KidsCampAmerica will be an unforgettable experience for your child - an American style day camp right here in Frankfurt. During their time at camp, your child will:
KidsCampAmerica offers week-long, full immersion intensive English courses for teens from 13 years and up. From Monday through Friday 1pm - 5pm our teens dive into the four elements of English immersion: speaking, reading, writing, and listening with certified and experienced English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers.
Our intensive English campers are any teen who wants to improve their English in any one of the above areas. Because we limit our group size to 8 participants, our teachers are able to target each students' individual needs. Each camper takes an English diagnostic exam before the start of the course and our expert teachers plan lessons to fill each students' learning gaps. After completing the diagnostic exams each student is placed at their individual face2face level and receives the student workbook that they may keep to continue their English practice after the course has ended.
Each of our intensive English courses uses the world renowned face2face Cambridge English books to spark conversation among our course participants. We recognize that in many school systems students simply do not speak enough English in class and therefore our primary focus is encouraging our students' confidence in their spoken English. Of course, we focus on correct grammar, and vocabulary and therefore we utilize the students' face2face workbooks throughout the course as well.
KidsCampAmerica offers intensive English courses in Frankfurt, Berlin, Munich, Freiburg, Wiesbaden, and Dreieich. Our facilities are in some of the best private schools in each city offering SmartBoard access and technology based learning to enhance our lessons.
