Ready for the next school year!

We have the free summer schools of the federal states for you

Article was written on 31.07.2020 by Philipp.

Many federal states have reacted to the cancellation of lessons. In school-related summer camps, students can keep up with the school curriculum and understand some things from the last school year even better. They are allowed to work again in schools or other communal areas with the learning material of the last school year and are thus better prepared for the next one.

Ready for the next school year!

We have been looking for summer schools all over Germany. Nearly all countries offer corresponding offers, but not always through attendance classes. In Saxony-Anhalt and Bremen there are digital offers which you can work on with the children from home and no matter in which federal state.

The available offers were collected by us. In our list you will find links to all important information. We will introduce you to how it works in your state and for which class levels the program applies.

We hope you find something close to you.

All offers are funded by the ministries of culture and are therefore free of charge.

The links will take you to the school programmes of the individual federal states. Find out what is available in your area.
