Don’t leave booking those summer activities for the kids to the last minute as registration for most places tends to close early. Delano highlights a few summer activitiesand camps your children may like.
Aktioun Bambësch is a firm favourite summer activity in the capital for children aged 5 to 12. They offer a host of activities for young people on weekday afternoons from 17 July to 11 August. For slightly older children (13-17), there is Aktioun Jugend Aktiv, a free, four-week programme of activities.
If you would like your children to improve their languages over the summer, a number of language camps are offered in Luxembourg. Berlitz offers camps for teenagers and younger children in French (Lultzhausen), English (Echternach) and German (Schengen). There is also a French horse riding camp in Luxembourg City.
Prolingua, meanwhile, offers a summer academy in English and French. And Languages.lu offers language camps from mid-June to September in Luxembourg, France, Germany and Belgium.
If your children speak Luxembourgish, the national youth service runs a number of summer camps for different ages.
Similarly, Young Caritas runs themed summer camps abroad and in Luxembourg from July to August, as does the Red Cross, which caters to 4- to 17-year-olds. The latter offers 19 different holiday camps at a low cost.
