These summer camps are designed to help children of all ages learn languages, including French, English, and German! Some are week-long sleep-away camps and others are just for the day. They aim to help children develop their language skills while also keeping them engaged with fun activities. These camps are offered for kids ages 7-17 and located across Luxembourg (or internationally if your kids are up for an adventure)!
This camp is a great way to keep your kids active, as they’ll get to play sports like squash and rugby. Sessions run for one week and are offered from July 3rd through September 1st! This camp is for children ages 3-12, and don’t forget to pack a lunch and snack for your child as they are not provided.
This camp has been going on every summer for more than 40 years! There are two different versions—a “Mini Sport-Wochen” for children ages 11-12 and a “Sport-Wochen” for children ages 13-17. Sessions can last anywhere from 4 to 7 days, some of which include overnight stays.

This five-day camp is perfect for children with a strong interest in theater! It’s composed of workshops offered in French, English, and Luxembourgish and is meant for children ages 8-15. They’ll learn about playing characters, reading scripts, and improvising, and they’ll get some great behind-the-scenes experience of putting on shows! The teachers are all Luxembourgish or French actors and actresses.
If you’d like your child to gain valuable life skills, stay active and outdoors, develop great habits, and make new friends, then we’d recommend you check out some scouting groups!

The Robert Schuman Unit is a French-speaking troop, and the Telstar Unit is an English-speaking troop. Happy scouting!
