Photography Camp - Summer 2021

At Photography Camp, children can bring their imagination to life...

About Photography Camp
This camp is designed to introduce children - little and big - to the world of photography; from the basics of how to use a camera to how to light influences the final photograph. Using their newly-learned techniques and self-made props, campers will capture static and moving objects, inside and outdoors, as well as themselves and our friends at camp. 

To ensure that your children also spend plenty of time out in the fresh air, field trips allow the children to take part in exploration projects*. Campers will visit Madurodam on a wonderful day out to discover the best and most beautiful places of the Netherlands. Campers are welcome to take their completed photography projects home to show off to their friends and family.

In addition to the workshop activities specifically focussing on the theme of the week each camp also includes fun sports and recreational games daily and two field trips per week. Click the link to see what a typical day at camp looks like.


* Some Field Trip locations are currently to be confirmed due to current closures of museums and activity centres.

Zein is the trusted partner of the key international schools in The Hague including The British School, The International School of The Hague,  The Waldorf School, The European School, The French Lycee and de Haagsche Schoolvereeniging - as well as a number of local Dutch Schools. Please note, however, that all families are welcome throughout the summer, regardless which school your child attends. Parents are free to select any of Zein's locations for holiday camps and, as all are registered and fully licensed, working or families can claim part of the costs for the camps back via the Dutch Childcare Allowance (kinderopvangtoeslag).

Please note: To prevent the spread of Coronavirus and to ensure the safety of all children and teachers at Zein, there will be additional safety protocols in place throughout all Holiday Camps. 

What language is spoken at the holiday camps?

Our holiday camps are open to everyone. English is the main language spoken, but many of our teachers are international and speak multiple languages. Where possible, and if needed, they will take the time to explain things in your child's mother tongue.

The camps also offer Dutch children the perfect opportunity to practice their English in a relaxed and informal setting - after all, learning works best when you're having fun!

Do you have qualified staff?

All our camps and activities are led by our qualified childcare practitioners and carried out in age appropriate format for children aged 4 – 6 and 7 – 12. Where relevant we make use of professional sports teachers and other specialists - all of whom have pedagogical and safety training.  Our holiday camps offer exciting hands-on activities, sports, recreational games and field-trips in a safe and non-competitive environment.

How much does it cost?

The gross cost (without childcare allowance) is €102.90 per day or €514.50 per week. This price includes healthy organic meals and snacks throughout the day, entrance fees and transport for field trip, and all materials and instruction.
