Preschool-12 Bilingual Education in
Two Locations in the Bay Area

Kindergarten Camp MV: Age 5 - 6


Our Vorschule Camp is just for Kindergarteners. In a group of 12 kids with one GISSV instructor, 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.

Registration opens:

  •  on April 8 at 8am for all GISSV parents.
  •  on April 10 at 8am for all GISSV Saturday School parents.
  •  on April 11 at 8am for everyone

Enrollment for Summer Camp is on a first come, first served basis.
Registration will close on May 24.

Once capacities for sessions are reached, or if not enough children sign up for a class, we cannot guarantee desired schedules or camp availability.

Enrollment from waitlists when possible.
