Wondering what to do with the family for your summer holiday or weekend getaway? Join us for one of Waldsee’s Family Weeks! Enrollment is open to families of all ages (minimum of one adult and one child). We have developed a unique program that draws on our Waldsee program’s fun, with a few added extras for families.

Our German family language and cultural immersion program offers an ideal opportunity to share an “international” experience for a fraction of the cost of traveling abroad. Family programs are a perfect way to learn more about family members’ heritage or prepare for a trip to Germany, Switzerland or Austria. The best part is simply being together in a beautiful setting where you can reinforce the importance of being a good citizen in our global community.

Each family member will choose a German name, focus on German language development, enjoy German activities and have free time to spend together. Comfortable lodging in traditional Fachwerkhaus or modern Passivhaus and delicious homemade German cuisine are part of our trademark full-immersion setting. Invite friends or grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles for an unforgettable family reunion!
