Learning, Adventure, Friendship and Fun!

The International School of Hellerup Summer Programme, aimed at children aged 4-12, provides an active and engaging time of learning, adventure and summer fun in a caring and supportive environment. The programme is delivered in English and runs for six weeks from 28th June to 6th August, 2021. 

The ISH Summer Programme is open to all children, including ISH students, students from other schools and children visiting the Copenhagen area. Our qualified teachers and pedagogues are dedicated to ensuring that your child will have an enjoyable and enriching experience with plenty of opportunities to make new friends, learn new skills, have lots of fun and stay healthy during the summer holidays. The ISH Summer Programme is divided into:

  • Summer CARE (for students aged 4-10) - a programme with daily activities, crafts and educational games organised in a child-centred setting where students influence what activities will take place based on their interests. The CARE programme is offered from June 28 – August 6 and is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 – 16:30. 
  • Summer CAMPS (for students aged 7-12) -a series of week-long, thematic workshops led by qualified teaching staff or coaches. Students experiment in a cooperative environment that takes learning outside the classroom. At the end of the camp week, the participating students display their work to each other and their parents. The CAMP programme is offered from June 28 – August 13 and is open Monday-Friday from 9:00 – 16:00. 

Children are signed up on a weekly basis so your family can choose summer activities according to your schedule. It is possible to mix and match CARE and CAMP weeks according to your child’s interests and needs. Early registration is encouraged since some of the summer camps have a limited number of spots available. Register by May 14th for an automatic Early Bird discount on your course fees. The first 50 students to sign up will get a free ISH Summer Programme T-shirt!

Why the ISH Summer Programme?

Our kids (age 4 & 8 ) attended the ISH summer programme for the first time last year, and they LOVED it! The atmosphere was loving, and the days were filled with fun activities. They are both super excited to go back in the summer!


ISH Summer Camp was an excellent experience and we would definitely recommend it to other parents considering it. Our daughter came home with a smile every day and proceeded to educate us parents on everything from prehistoric dinosaurs to ancient egypt. The teachers were also very good at making sure she was feeling good socially and she ended up making new friends. All in all, happy kid, happy parents, excellent programme!
At ISH we tried a new school, a new environment and teachers for a Summer Camp. Our daughter was 5 at that time and had a great time. At the beginning she was shy and did not know anybody, but the staff made her feel comfortable and then she settled quickly. They played outside and made a lot of arts and crafts, she made new friendships, we had playdates and she is still asking me when she will go back to play with her ISH friends.
