Unser Sprachcamp Allgäu Team


  • Hoch qualifizierte und erfahrene Outdoor Trainer*innen, die die entsprechende sicherheitstechnischen Ausbildungen wie Klettertrainer oder Mountainleader haben und auch mit den nötigen Softskills ausgestattet sind wie Pädagogik, Outdoor Education, Erlebnispädagogik.
  • Native Speakers, die aus der ganzen Welt zu uns kommen, sei es England, Irland, Amerika oder Südafrika.
  • Language Assistants, die unsere*n Trainer*in in einer 12er Gruppe unterstützen, damit die Teilnehmer genug Möglichkeiten haben, Englisch zu sprechen. Unsere Assistants sind auch Muttersprachler, meistens Studenten aus dem englischsprachigen Raum.

Ich wähle meine Outdoortrainer und Language Assistants sorgfältig aus – viele Sprachcamp Instructors kommen über mehrere Jahre zu uns, weil sie die kreative Art unseres Englischcamps sehr wertschätzen und auch als sinnstiftend erleben.


James is from a small town in the Southeast of England and currently lives in Edinburgh in Scotland. Having previously studied Physics and International Development, he currently works as an outdoor activity instructor, something that he enjoys as it takes him to all kinds of interesting places around the country and the world. He will often still be found outdoors even when not working, whether that be hiking, climbing, running, or cycling. On other days, however, he is just as likely to be found with a hot cup of coffee and a good book.

Ich organsiere die Sprachcamps vorab und vielleicht hatten Sie schon per email Kontakt mit mir. Ich bin bei allen Sprachcamps dabei und helfe mit, unterstütze mein Trainerteam oder kläre die Logistik vor Ort. Auch für unsere Schulcamps bin ich Ansprechpartner.

Meine Englischcamps bereite ich mit viel Sorgfalt und Freude vor – auch wenn dazu gehört sich durch einen Riesen Stapel Papierkram zu wühlen, damit meine Mitarbeiter trotz Brexit unsere Camps durchführen können. Dabei ist mir auch eine faire Bezahlung meiner Trainer wichtig.
