At Portland Kinderschule Immersion Spring and Summer Camps, campers will explore the world while learning German. Language and culture will come to life through hands-on projects, stories, songs, games and outdoor fun.
While the camps are a German immersion program, no prior experience with the German language is necessary. Portland Kinderschule spring camps are an excellent stepping stone for parents wanting to explore our German language immersion program. No parent helper days are required during spring camps. Teachers will focus our spring program around cultural activities, science, games, crafts, outdoor play, and, most importantly, helping students create new friendships and build upon old ones.
Our 2020 camp hours are Monday through Friday, from 9 am – 1pm and we enroll 12 campers per camp. An excellent opportunity to explore our German Immersion program!
Portland Kinderschule is required to have a parent camp assistant present during camp hours. Parent camp assistants work 8:45 am - 1:15 pm. Camp tuition is free for one of the parent camp assistant's children and parent camp assistants are paid $13.50/hour. Please let us know if you may be interested in filling this role
