Camp language is english

national & international participants

20 english lessons per week

24h supervision by native speakers

Let's go!

Whether on the mountain, in the swimming pool or in front of the campfire in the evening - you can learn English anywhere and anytime! In line with this motto, English is spoken at the English Action Camp not only in the morning during lessons, but also during all leisure, sports and evening activities.
Native-speaking trainers encourage you to use the language in all situations.

Fun language learning is at the core of the English Action Camp: on the first day after arrival, a placement test is carried out and based on the results, participants are divided in the appropriate language level group.

Together with the other participants from all over the world, you will work on projects, create discussions on current topics and work on improving your grammar.

Through varied activities and language workshops, your English skills will improve automatically, without any pressure or learning stress.

In your free time, there is a varied programme with attractive excursions (e.g. rafting or high ropes course, adventure hike, swimming, etc.).

4 x 4 our formula for success


Fast and successful learning is guaranteed thanks to the 4 pillars and 4 daily** units of study.

The Yala! Method has 4 main focuses: Conversation, vocabulary, grammar, country & culture. Students experience, learn and discover these themes. Lesson plans are designed to be interactive and creative - role play, discussions, presentations, games and, of course, movement are all part of the holistic language experience! Since our language teachers also double as activity guides, the things students learn become applied knowledge all on their own and allow students to easily overcome language barriers.

All units are taught exclusively by native speakers based on based on the international standard "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages".

leisure activities

Certain trains run through from Germany to Salzburg (without changing trains). If you trust your child to travel alone, we will be happy to pick them up directly at the train platform and accompany them to the shared transfer that will take the children to the camps. We do not charge any extra fee for the pick-up service - only the costs for the collective transfer from Salzburg to the camp have to be paid. The ticket for the train ride has to be organized independently. We will be happy to help you find the right connection.

The escort service from / to the train platform must be booked in advance! Please note that the collective transfer from Salzburg leaves at about 15:30, so the arrival should ideally be between 14:00 and 15:00. For return trips, the train should not leave before 12:00 and not after 13:00.

Should the train be significantly delayed, any costs for an individual transfer to the camp may be incurred.

How does the accompanied train journey work?

A ya! travel guide will meet you and your child at the departure station at the platform of the given train. He/she looks after the group, takes care of the children joining at a later station and hands over the children in Salzburg to the ya! team. From here, the children will travel on to the summer camps with the other participants in buses. You will receive detailed information on train times, train numbers, etc. with your travel documents.
