Upcoming English Day Camps in Wiesbaden and Mainz
Join our family
As a family-run camp, we understand how hard it is to find quality programs for our children during the holidays. That’s what KCA is for – when kids are supported, encouraged, and cared for by their teachers and their peers, their confidence grows, their curiosity is nurtured, their enthusiasm shows no bounds, and their potential soars. For more information about what our typical daily schedule is like click here: Typical Daily Schedule. *Please note that this schedule is only an example. The activities and English themes change weekly.
Don’t just learn
English, live it
Our day camps are designed to bring the English language to life with adventurous experiences that get our campers out of the classroom and quickly bonding and speaking with one another. We do outdoor activities every afternoon and an excursion each week. Our most popular excursions include swimming centers, bowling, zoos, science museums, blacklight mini-golfing and more!
Activities for every
At KCA we offer a huge range of afternoon activities – from baseball to mask making, American football to beaded jewelry. One of our most popular activities is our book club, where campers choose an English book they all read each afternoon andthen discuss it with one another . It is a great way to unwind at the end of a busy day at camp.
A focus on
We cannot stress enough how important it is that each child who comes to camp feels at home. That is why we promote teamwork and cooperation during every lesson and every activity. Each group has a name, a chant, and creates a secret handshake so that they have a family to join each day at camp.

Full Immersion English Language Camps for Kids
Our English day camps are perfect for children aged 5 – 12, at all levels of comprehension – from complete beginner to native speaker. We are currently offering our English Day Camps in Mainz and Wiesbaden. Every year we welcome hundreds of campers from all over the world who play, sing songs, create art and perform drama – all day and all in English. We are a family-run camp and that’s why we’ve designed them to be as flexible as possible. You can book one week at a time, or for the entire holiday. You can book just the mornings, just the afternoons, or all day, or with extended hours early and late. You can book with peace of mind knowing that your child is at one of our camps, being cared for by professionals, learning, playing, and living English.
Each morning, our professional staff of native English speakers guides our campers through a fun curriculum of cooperative group games and hands-on projects, all focused on a daily theme with an emphasis on using vocabulary in each theme. In the afternoons, children participate in a variety of exciting camp activities led by our creative and energetic personnel. When your child joins KCA they join a team of open-minded people from a diverse range of nations and cultures. They will be sure to forge lifelong friendships by the time they leave. We’ve built all our camps so that each child can reach their full potential. We are confident that our campers will have the experience of a lifetime and return home not only with improved linguistic skills, but also unforgettable memories.

Morning English lessons are thoroughly planned so that children at all levels of English comprehension will enjoy them.
