Kindergarten Camp SF: Age 5 - 6
>>> Location: 117 Diamond Street, San Francisco
In a group of 12 kids with one GISSV instructor, or 15 kids and two GISSV instructors we begin to focus on the building blocks of academic German language learning.
Following German pedagogy for children who are preparing to enter school, our program blends crafts, imaginative play, outdoor time, music and movement, and early academic learning.
The instructors speak in German only, but will respond to both spoken English and German. Children from all language levels are welcome--from total beginner to native speaker.
We hope that your child will enjoy their group experience, learn a lot about the German language, be proud of what they accomplish, and meet many new friends.
Enrollment for Summer Camp is on a first come, first served basis.
Once capacities for sessions are reached, or if we do not have enough staff due to teacher's shortage, if not enough children sign up for a class, or if CDC guidelines change we cannot guarantee desired schedules or camp availability.
Enrollment from waitlists when possible.
Sign up for a 2 week package for Half Day or Full Day Camp (AM Camp + PM Camp).
Half Day Camp: 9am - 1pm
Full Day Camp: 9am - 4pm
Registration is first come, first served, with caps on all programs. Register early to secure your desired schedule.
AM & PM Camp: Early German academics
Our Vorschüler share circle time, breakfast time, crafts, games, stories, and outdoor play, all designed to build German understanding, vocabulary, as well as pre-academic and social skills at the Kindergarten level. Every morning, students will also explicitly learn about the German alphabet and phonetics, to get them ready to read and write!
Weekly themes (see below) guide activities and provide vocabulary throughout the day.
Pack a little extra snack! Kids get hungry in camp!
AM Camp 9am - 12pm / communal breakfast 10am - 10:30am
Supervised by our instructors, students from Vorschule enjoy outdoor lunch and games whenever possible.
Supervised Lunch: 12pm - 1pm
