Golf and Language Camp

In  August 2022, St Gilgen International School is offering the opportunity to improve both your language and golf skills at our exceptional Golf & Language Camp. The camp is located in the beautiful village of St Gilgen in the Salzkammergut and is surrounded by mountains and lakes. The programme will combine language instruction, in either English or German, with golf coaching.

Get swinging with top golf training.
The golf programme is developed for all levels, from beginners to advanced golfers. The more advanced players can work towards improving their handicap, and beginners towards earning their Austrian Golf License (Platzreife). Training is undertaken in small groups with professional coaches to allow campers to benefit the most from their training sessions.

Flourish in the right conditions. 
The camp provides 9 days of training with 4 hours per day, in addition to a tournament on the final day (weather dependent). Campers train with technical equipment like the Trackman or Sam PuttLab. In the case of bad weather, we will use an indoor training area in Bad Ischl which offers the perfect wet weather training location. 

Speak out in English.
Summer Camp participants will attend 3 hours of classes per day of focused language tuition in English (a total of 15 hours per week). The courses are designed for each student’s level and take place within a fun and active classroom environment. 

Find your voice.
Learning a new language will open a window into intercultural understanding and help develop critical thinking skills. Students will also have the opportunity to apply their learned language in real world situations. This will be a truly fun way to explore a new language and Austria at the same time!

Language that helps you level up. 
The language lessons will be delivered by highly skilled instructors, with an emphasis on communication and conversational skills. We offer English lessons from beginner (A1 and A2 level) to intermediate (B1 and B2 level). The courses will be concluded with an official language certificate.

Pencil in the experience of a lifetime.
The language courses and activities at the Golf and Language Camp begin on the Monday and finish on the Friday. On the first and last days, students will be given leisure time to explore our campus and surroundings. Students arrive in St. Gilgen on Saturday, 13th August between 9am and 11am and leave on Friday, 26th August in the afternoon between 5pm and 7pm.

English Activity Camp

The best preparation for starting an education in English
In August 2023, St. Gilgen International School is offering a fully immersive English Language course for children wanting to improve their English language skills and build stronger foundations for the coming academic year so that they feel ready and confident to start studying in an English speaking environment. We offer a complete English Language Learning Experience through fun engaging lessons, and individual projects.

Experience the StGIS lifestyle.
The course is for children aged 12 to 15 years old, from around the world, that currently have an A2 or B1 level of English and are looking to make the next step. Our students enjoy excellent classroom teaching by our passionate teachers. Classes will be differentiated to cater for individual student needs and abilities, and class sizes will be small allowing our students to benefit from more individual support. The academic programme will be enriched by personal projects that help our students consolidate their English skills.

Language – English
Camp participants will attend 5 hours of formal classes per day, a total of 25 hours focused language tuition per week, and will be expected to keep a diary, written in English, throughout the camp. Learning is designed and delivered at each student’s particular level. Every student will have the opportunity to practise their reading/pronunciation skills with a member of staff during allotted reading times. The courses will be concluded with an official language certificate, and a detailed action plan.

Creative Drama Activity
This fun-packed creative Drama activity is spread over two weeks, and will begin with getting to know each other through drama games and lots of fun improvisation. Each afternoon the group will help create and rehearse an exciting and memorable piece of drama to be presented to family and friends on August 25th. This two-week afternoon drama project will compliment the other English Immersive Camp lessons and  activities and will be an exciting way of exploring dramatic themes, and learning or improving on performance techniques, building confidence, in addition to improving English language skills. 

Strengthening and reinforcing a foreign language will open a window into international and cultural understanding.

Hygiene Measures

How will we keep your children safe?
In order to ensure everyone’s safety you should not bring your child to the camp if anyone that your child has had close contact with has had covid in the 2 weeks prior to the camp.

Any sick campers will be required to where a face mask when around others, tested for Covid 19, and moved to a wellness room to recover, where house staff will keep a close/ regular eye on them and take them to visit the doctors if deemed required.

Can I still visit my child during the camp?
We always recommend that parents do not visit their children after dropping them off at the camp, as it sometimes makes it harder for them to settle and can prolong feelings of homesickness. This year, to maintain the highest levels of safety for all, we will not be allowing any non-camp personnel entry to the house, after the first day.

What happens if a participant or staff members tests positive for Covid 19?
In the unfortunate case that someone is found to be positive for the Covid -19 virus, they will immediately be put into isolation in their room and asked to where a mask when interacting with staff. Parents will be contacted to collect their son/daughter as soon as possible. If it is a staff member, they will be immediately required to leave the house. Where possible the camp will all be tested at regular intervals throughout the rest of the camp.
