Christoph Schipper and Daniel Becher founders of RheinFit Sportakademie GmbH: “We have organized around 100 holiday camps for children since more than 10 years and have great experience…”


Both of us studied Sport economics at the German Sports University of Cologne and made our diploma in 2010.

We started our camp Project “Move-It Sportcamps” in 2012 and took over “Ferienfussball” in 2015 wich is offering football camps since more than 18 years. We leaded several youth camps during our studies and the idea for our own business had been rising in our diploma theses. It’s important for us to show children the opportunities of doing sports and support them in social behavior.

After finishing our studies we qualified for the EXIST founder stipendium by the German Government and European Union and received one year of supper to prepare founding the company and set up the camp programs.
