Summer Camps

The FIS summer camp program is held on our Oberursel Campus and offers students unforgettable experiences through challenging academic and social activities. Our students have always relished the opportunity to learn alongside their friends into the summer vacation. Students not only have fun learning, but get to know new friends before starting school in the fall as well.

Activities
Qualified teachers lead a wide variety of challenging and fun activities designed to meet the needs of students from different age groups and nationalities. Activities are open to native English as well as non-native speakers, and are usually attended by both current and newly enrolled students.

Examples of activities may include:

  • Adventure and team sports
  • Performing arts
  • Arts and crafts
  • Computer technology
  • English as a second language
  • Creative writing
  • Robotics

Registration
Registration for Summer Camps at FIS is completed online. A separate registration form is required for each participant. Once successful registration is complete, parents will receive an email confirmation.

Class sizes are limited to help campers gain higher engagement levels and allow our talented instructors greater opportunity to focus on the needs of the group.

Preference is given to FIS/FISW families and secondly to those who applied earliest. FIS summer camps strive to provide an enjoyable and unique experience for all our participants.

A hot lunch meal and two snacks (morning and afternoon) is included in camp prices. For those days when kids are on a field trip or an outdoor adventure activity, lunch and snacks will be pre-packaged to take along.

Register online here for all summer camps.
