“Mia and Lara can’t wait to return to German camp this year. They enjoyed learning German in the beautiful woodland and lake setting of Joan’s home. The combination of indoor and outdoor activities including games, craft-making, conversation and baking through German each day made it such an enjoyable environment for them to learn the language. “
