On Monday, two-week campers explored the world of German television with Das Fernsehspiel (the TV Game)! Houses worked together to complete challenges based on well-known TV shows in Germany and Austria: Shopping Queen, Herzblatt (The Dating Game), and Das Weiß Doch Jedes Kind (Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?)
Grüezi, Waldsee! This week we have been celebrating Helvetia Swiss Week! We have not only one-, two-, and four-week campers, but we also have families at Waldsee learning German, Italian, and French!
Friday was International Day! All of the other CLV camps joined us at Waldsee for a day of fun and learning— Al-Waha (Arabic Language Village), Sēn Lín Hú (Chinese Language Village), Mori no Ike (Japanese Language Village), Lago del Bosco (Italian Language Village), El Lago del Bosque (Spanish Language Village), Lesnoe Ozero (Russian Language Village), Lac du Bois (French Language Village), and Sjölunden (Swedish Language Village).
The Waldsee Digital Abenteuerprogramm (adventure program) spent one of their sessions writing a guest post for the Waldsee blog! They wrote the German text and the translations on their own, and we’re so proud of everything they’ve learned in the last two weeks.
Campers woke up on Wednesday to a wall dividing the campground into West-Waldsee and Ost-Waldsee (West and East Waldsee). Teilnehmer (Ts, one-week campers) and Kursteilnehmer (KTs, two-week campers) found themselves in the western half, and the Leistungskursteilnehmer (LKTs, high school credit campers) and Lehrlinge (apprentices) were on the eastern side. How was life different in a divided Waldsee?
