Zein February Camps 2020

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, on week days from 08:00 - 18:30 hrs.

Having a full and varied programme at all out of school care locations, there is always something for every child while attending the camp - from numerous exciting activities to outdoor & indoor sports and recreational games and complementary field trips with all campers. The programme is carefully put together as it is arranged per age group to ensure children of all ages will have great fun and are able to 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.

FIELD TRIPS  
Each camp week will also include two entertaining field trips! All campers of the French Lycee will enjoy 2 extra field trips as their school will be closed for two weeks.
