ISS has been offering summer opportunities for our internationally mobile and local German families for more than 2,300 children over the past 10 years. Our programming celebrates learning English and German in a fun and active program that takes advantage of our beautiful region. Enjoying our surroundings and learning how to communicate has built enduring friendships between students from all over the world.
Now, more than ever, Summer is an opportunity for children to relax and replenish themselves while also continuing to grow in so many ways! If you are looking for an English language summer activity or moving to the Stuttgart area over the summer, our camp in Degerloch is a great way for your child to get a taste for their new school, or just experience an interdisciplinary, immersive learning and recreational summer program that provides engaging learning for English, German, Science, Math and other elective classes.
I love going to summer@iss! We do many fun activities and I get to know the local German kids that are not at ISS. I have even stayed friends with a few that I met last year. My favorite theme week last year was Outdoor Adventures but I am looking forward to “A Race Through Time”!
