Summer Camp – Part 1

Summer Camp – Part 1

The first week of the summer camp is over and the time passed so quickly. Eight hours a day outside on the terrace we have learned everything about the elements -earth, water, air and fire.

We discussed the resources and renewable energy, with an emphasis on sustainability in mind. Although the topics were not easy, the kids worked very hard and performed all of the exercises excellently. We explained the German vocabulary step by step, repeated and wrote them down in a glossary.

Surprisingly the children knew a lot of German words already. Also, the teachers of the Sea Base have supported us. With their assistance we could make an excursion on the water and take part in a kayak and sailboat tour. We have also designed great posters, planted basil, watched short videos in German, created maps and written important information about tides, solar and wind energy, recycling down playfully. I think we had a week as much as could be organized, and I think that the children got a great program and learned a lot. Finally, there was a big Ice Cream Social, which was great fun! Now we know what it takes to create a week-long German class and the next week is getting even better!
