Our Summer Camp in Germany, is set in the beautiful National Park "Lüneburger Heide", right in-between the cities of Bremen, Hamburg and Hanover.
The spacious camp site, situated in walking distance to a traditional Northern German village with centuries-old timbered houses; is surrounded by wild nature.
More than 15 acres of woods, 7 lakes for swimming, canoeing, stand-up paddling and raft building, a high ropes course, a double zip-line and extensive grassy plains, create the perfect environment some Bear-Grylls-Style fun!

As a senior camper (12-16 years) you have the choice of sleeping in tents (6-7 kids) or in the Academy house in shared rooms (10-15 beds) - of course girls and boys sleep separately. The house has bathrooms and toilets. As a junior camper (7-12 years) you can choose between tents or huts with 8 beds. The toilets and washrooms are just around the corner.

You can choose between tent and adventure lodges:

Adventure Lodges - the Canadian style
The cozy adventure huts with bunk beds will be shared by six to eight kids - of course girls and boys sleep separately. Booking the huts will be charged with 50 EUR extra per week.

Tent village - the perfect adventure feeling
The tent villages count 40 tents for 6-7 kids each tent. Seniors and Juniors will have their own tent village. All tents have wooden floor and a rood loft. In your sleeping bag on your camping mattress you will enjoy the nights with your friends. If gets too cold for some of you, you can borrow extra sleeping bags from us.

The washing rooms and toilets are only a few meters away from the tents. Of course sanitary facilities are separated by gender too. The staff, our Teamers, stay just next door! If you have questions, wishes or problems our Teamers will always be available 24 hours a day.
