River Camp

go with the flow

A river runs through it: our property is situated around a gently flowing tributary that gives the River Camp its name. We can jump into the temperate water from the pier, the raft, a nearby tree – or use the raft to cross to the other side, where a supervised rockclimbing route awaits. Our kayak is perfect for exploring the area. In the surrounding forest, we can collect edible plants, play a patrol game, or hike to the nearest village to eat ice cream. Every day we learn a few new wilderness skills. In the evenings, we can sit around the campfire, roast a snack, and tell stories.
We live in a converted homestead with simple amenities, fully-equipped kitchen, and fresh bedclothes. The entire homestead is at our exclusive disposal, with a wide palette of organic meals.

Ideal for children between 8 and just under 12.

Didn’t get a spot? Our regular customers usually book in early January. Signing up for the waiting list pays off, though – sometimes families change their plans and are grateful for the opportunity to swap their already booked spot.

Constanze hat es sehr sehr gut gefallen. Sie war nach der Woche sehr ausgeglichen und hat nicht aufgehört zu erzählen... Von der Fackelwanderung, vom drüsigen Springkraut, von weiblichen und männlichen Brennesseln, vom Abseilen, von einer neuen Freundschaft und soo vieles mehr..... Herzlichen Dank und bis nächstes Jahr!
