WINTER HOLIDAY CAMPS 2018-19!
Join the adventure...

ABOUT WINTER CAMPS
In line with the festive holiday season, we will be running wonderful Winter Themed Activity Day Camps during the winter break of all key international and Dutch schools in The Hague. There will be a full and varied programme of exciting activity workshops for your child to choose from throughout the holiday, so they’ll be able to try something new and different every day! The themed 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...

MAIN THEMES FOR WINTER CAMPS
During the first week of camps, we will be focussing on 'Winter Holiday Fiesta', while the second week will be filled with exciting Snow & Science Experiments. For children aged 4-12, the winter day camps will be running at three of our The Hague locations from Monday to Friday from 08:00-18:30. Please see the sections below for more details on the programme and daily organisation of activities or click the link to reserve a place for your child.  

FIELD TRIPS
With two fun filled FIELD TRIPS to accompany each camp week, there really is something for everyone this Winter break. This time we will visit...

Programme for The Maples (Bomenbuurt, edge of Statenkwartier & Vogelwijk)

NOTE: During the winter break, The Maples specifically covers the holiday days of the European School, the International School, the French School and De Haagsche Schoolvereeniging. The holiday camp location is also open to children from other schools in the surrounding area - including Dutch families who would like to expose their child to a fun English-speaking environment. Click the link to find out more about The Maples.

FIRST WEEK OF CAMPS - 'WINTER HOLIDAY FIESTA'

Welcome to Winter Camp! The Little Explorers (aged 4-6) will kick-off camp with making their own decorated tree and fingerprint Elves Cards. The Big Adventurers (aged 7-12) will be creating 3D Snowflakes and their own coffee filter holiday garland. And all young chefs amongst us are lucky on this day, because baking soft gingerbread man cookies will be part of the programme as well! All camp days are complemented with sports and recreational games, also to be done outdoors if weather conditions permit.

Monday 24 December:
On the second day of camps, the little explorers will be crafting sparkling fireworks, colourful snowman bowling pins and a festive popsicle stick hot chocolate mug. Big adventurers will be making magical snow globes, clay leaf prints and pendants, and designing winter painted paper art.
