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. Young Explorers are typically 4-6 or 7 years and Great Adventurers are 7 or 8 to 12 years.

RUNNING AT THREE LOCATIONS
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.
