Residence
All of the classrooms, cafeteria and residence are located in the same building, which means there is no commuting involved. The school exclusively offers residence accommodation. You will share a room with 3 other students. The bedroom includes a bathroom with a shower (one bathroom shared by two bedrooms) and a wardrobe for your personal belongings. The rooms are cleaned on a weekly basis, and full-board is provided on-site. You will feel comfortable here while enjoying first-class facilities. The camp supervision staff live in the same residence and are available on a 24-hour basis to ensure students' safety and well-being.

During the week, you will benefit from two time slots of daily activities (in the afternoons and evenings) with your activity leaders. In the afternoons, you will be able to practise many sports (beach volley, minigolf, badminton, squash, ping-pong, indoor climbing, basketball, inline-skating, swimming, etc.), go on excursions or play games. On Saturdays, you will go into town in order to enjoy current cultural events, including festivals, an open-air circus, the flea market, etc. On Sundays, you will go on a full-day excursion in the surroundings of Freiburg. On-site, the activity leaders will also offer you the chance to take part in a wide range of optional activities. You will see that Freiburg offers many opportunities for sports and fun. It is a green city with a wide network of cycle lanes and sunny weather throughout the year.
