Canadian Summer School in Germany
Calendar and Events
During your stay in Kassel, the CSSG program offers a variety of interesting activities. These range from readings by German authors, city walking tours, visits to museums, learning traditional German folk dancing, going to musicals, operas, and theatre plays (where you get to dress smart :) ), as well as recreational activities like salsa dancing, playing soccer, bowling, etc. We also arrange trips to Berlin and at least one other city (in 2017: the fun and friendly city of Cologne!). The schedule you see (below) is preliminary.
The calendar shows the main events and activities, but each year we were able to add more activities during the program. When in Germany, we will have constant updates. It is up to you to make the most of your stay — participation in the events we arrange is among the highlights of the program.
Participation in all CSSG excursions (Berlin, Cologne, concerts, etc.) is voluntary. These excursions are included in your program fee.
This is a great opportunity to experience German culture and life style first hand, discover the old and new Germany, enhance your understanding of the historical, political, and cultural developments in Germany, and ultimately rediscover yourself through immersion.
The 2017 CSSG program runs from May 3 to June 17, 2017. (Please note that the immersion stage of the Teaching and Learning course is May 13-27, 2017.)
In order to arrive in Germany in the morning of May 3, you will have to leave Canada on May 2 at the latest.
