Afternoon Activities

German language classes in the morning are complemented by a fun-filled afternoon program that introduces students to sports, music, art and other activities in both German and English. All activities are mixed age for the Elementary School PM Camp and Middle School PM Camp. Following a supervised lunch from 12 to 1 pm, there are two afternoon activity slots:
1pm- 2:20pm, and 2:40pm-4pm. In each slot, we offer 4 different activities that also vary from week to week.

Students choose ONE activity for EACH slot, for one week at a time.
