Academic Summer and Academic Camp have operated summer camps during the summers of 2020 and 2021 in the UK and Europe. We, therefore, have experience in running our camps during COVID times. We hope this will give you the confidence to book your summer camp with us.
We are now taking bookings for 2022 with an option to book risk-free.
In order to help families to make decisions about next summer and book with confidence, we are introducing interim terms and conditions for any new bookings made between 1st December 2021 and 28th February 2022.
For the first time ever we are going to let you decide how you spend your afternoons with us. Not only do students get to chose their subjects at Academic Summer but now they can chose their afternoon activies. Options include: athletics, games, food technology, arts and crafts, drama, outdoor education, English workshop, horse-riding* or golf *. Read more here.
This programme is an excellent opportunity to improve your academic and language skills, a choice to practice English and/or German by studying your favourite academic subjects in one or both of these languages. Our teaching methodology is based around CLIL: Content and Language Integrated Learning. You study the content of academic subjects and, at the same time, improve your language skills. You can choose to study subjects in English or German or do a combination of both.
EXPLORATION CLASSES age 12 to 14
Our Explorers study a range of academic subjects in classes of up to ten students. You will study English, applied mathematics, sciences, social studies and art with us. The medium of instruction is English or German and there are 30 hours of study a week. Explorers learn valuable study skills to help them in their academic careers and are introduced to different ways of learning.
You can choose whether you wish to study subjects in English or German.
We integrate content (academic subject matter) and language development following the IB’s liberal approach to learning. Discovery and exploration are more highly valued than simply learning the content. We want you to develop your competence in the communicative use of English as an international language whether you are a native or non-native speaker of English.

Work for us
Academic Camp Germany is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects its staff to share this commitment.
In the summer we employ a team of teachers who are qualified to teach their subjects and have experience in teaching A-Level, the IB, Advanced Placement and ESL.
As well as experience we are looking for teachers that have enthusiasm and a love for their subjects. We like our teachers to make content interesting and the lessons will be a mixture of theory and practical work.
We also look for enthusiastic camp counsellors. We employ active and enthusiastic people who are comfortable leading groups of students for a range of activities and trips, supervising the students and helping them to have the best stay at camp possible. You must be flexible and have a few activity ideas up your sleeve!
Our course in Germany runs for four weeks with students joining in two week blocks. Teachers can teach one to four teaching blocks (each block is one daily lesson, Monday - Friday) a week, and there is the opportunity to take part in additional camp counsellor work. We are particularly keen to hear from teachers who are happy to teach a range of subjects.
We offer the following subjects, taught in English: Art Economics, business & entrepreneurship English and Essay writing Mathematics Presentations & Interviews Science Social Studies Theory of Knowledge (ToK) World Literature
