Being a Betreuer (Counselor)

Published: April 2, 2019

We talk a lot on the Waldsee blog about what parents and villagers can expect from one-, two-, or even four weeks at Waldsee. There are a lot of people though who spend quite a bit more time at Waldsee, sometimes eight weeks or more: our lovely Betreuerschaft (counselor staff). What does it take to be a Waldsee counselor? Lots of planning and a lot of Begeisterung (enthusiasm)!

You might notice on the Waldsee packing list that we recommend bringing along “one set of dress clothes.” Between all of the painting, hiking, soccer playing, and swimming, what could you possibly need a set of dress clothes for? One special occasion at Waldsee that villagers and counselors like to dress up for is Restaurantabend (restaurant night)!

The Lehrling Lifestyle

The only thing more fun than two weeks at Waldsee is four weeks at Waldsee. The apprenticeship program gives villagers a unique view into the lives of the Betreuer (counselors) here at Waldsee and allows villagers to not only grow as readers, writers, and speakers of German, but also as leaders in the village community!

The only thing more fun than two weeks in Waldsee is four weeks in Waldsee! What makes the four-week high school credit program different than a two-week program?

Celebrating at Waldsee

Published: February 25, 2019

We love to celebrate at Waldsee! A few nights every session are devoted to a Festabend (festival night) in honor of some of the many culturally and historically significant festivals celebrated in German-speaking Europe.
