Day Camp

Published: June 26, 2017

Every week, Waldsee welcomes a new group of Villagers to the Day Camp program. Today marks the Ankunft (arrival) for several kids who will participate in exciting and engaging activities similar to last week. Day Camp Villagers participate in many of the same activities as the rest of Waldsee, for example Gesang, but they also have separate, unique activities with Day Camp Betreuer (counselors) Beatrix and Mari. Although they are the youngest group of campers, they have a tremendous amount of energy and participate with infectious excitement!

Villagers answered the question Wohin gehst du? (where are you going?) by making travel brouchures for their hometowns and foreign countries.

Ankunftstag! (Arrival day!)

Published: June 12, 2017

​Summer 2017 at Waldsee has officially begun! On Monday, new and returning Familien and Teilnehmer travelled from around the world to Waldsee. Although some had long days in the car or on a plane, the Villagers were more than excited to pick their new Waldsee names from the Namensbaum and immerse themselves right away in the German language and activities. The Begeisterung (excitement) was infectious and everyone went to bed eager to learn what Waldsee has to offer in the coming days.
