Dear Fellow German Teachers,

The annual North Carolina German Immersion Weekend for advanced German students, Deutsches Wochenende 2007, will be held on November 9-10th  at Camp Caraway in Asheboro. The camp is sponsored in part by the North Carolina chapter of the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) and the Foreign Language Association of North Carolina (FLANC).  It is a great tradition going back to 1980, and we especially encourage new colleagues to participate.

The theme for this year’s camp will be Musik: Die Sprache der Welt.  Among the events planned are an afternoon Schnitzeljagd  (pre-session 3-5 p.m), Talentschuppen, in which individuals or school groups will present a special talent such as a song, a  dance, or a skit; an Unterhaltungsabend featuring singing, dancing, and games; a Spiel des Wissens, during which students, arranged in teams, will rotate through a series of play stations prepared and staffed by the participating group leaders; a Staffellauf, a relay race; and the Goethe Pokal, a quiz bowl game in which competitors will have the chance to display their knowledge of the history, culture, and geography of the German-speaking world.  As customary, many prizes will be awarded.

The cost of the camp is $50, which includes room, meals, and a T-shirt.  Campers must bring their own towels and sleeping bags or linens. Students and teachers should also bring lots of their favorite snacks and drinks to be shared.

Please email me by Friday, September 28th with your pre-registration information, the number of students (boys/girls) you will bring to the camp.  Because there is only space for 60 student participants, I may have to ask you to bring slightly fewer students than indicated in your pre-registration information in order to allow as many schools as possible to participate.  I will send you confirmation of your numbers by Friday, October 5th.  You will be receiving medical permission and consent forms, maps and additional information once pre-registered. Student participants should be in 8th through 12th grade and in German III or higher. Accelerated German II students are also welcome to participate if space allows.

for participants must be received no later than Friday, October 19th.  Checks should be made out to R.J.Reynolds High School German Club and sent to the address below.
