The 2013 23rd annual North Carolina German Immersion Weekend for advanced German students will be held on November 8-9th at Camp Caraway outside of Asheboro. The camp is sponsored by the N.C. Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG). It is a fun tradition that goes back to 1980! Participating students agree to speak German during the entire event, work cooperatively with all students and teachers, and participate in all activities.
The theme for this year’s camp is Filme Kamera Aktion! (German movies).
Among the events are:
- Get-acquainted Games – each group has a film category (silent, action, horror, comedy, etc.)
- Pyramid Game (vocabulary description)
- We’re on stage! Acting out famous movie scenes
- Photo Scavenger Hunt
- Quiz Bowl
- Relay Races
- Art Projects – students make a poster promoting German!
- Songs Around a Campfire
- Filmstunde – students create their own short movie with their cell phones, the winner is voted on by all participants.
The cost of the camp is $60/student which includes transportation, room, 3 meals and a t-shirt. Campers will sleep in bunk beds in their respective rooms (girls’ or boys’). Students should also bring some comfortable shoes and clothing, rain gear, a flash light and a digital camera (one per school). The camp lasts approximately 24 hours, from about 5 pm on Friday until about the same time Saturday.\
