The Zein February Camps 2018

ABOUT THE CAMPS
During the upcoming February holidays, we will be running exciting Multi-Activity Camps where our Little Explorers (ages 4-6) and Big Adventurers (ages 7-12) can discover new interests and further develop their talents! Naturally, the camps run simultaneously with the holidays of all key international and Dutch schools in The Hague. 

Whether your child is a little chef or a scientist in the making, there will be a full and varied programme of exciting activity workshops for them to choose from throughout the camp period. All camp days offer a different selection of activities, so your child will be able to try something new every day. The workshop activities of the day will be complemented by a range of (outdoor & indoor) sports and recreational games - all arranged by age group to ensure campers of all ages will have great fun and learn new skills.

The camps will be running at all five Zein locations across The Hague. Please see the sections below for more details on the dates, programme and daily organisation of activities or click the link to reserve a place for your child.
