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 four 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 for more information on how to register.  

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.

All camp days at Zein are complemented with various sports and recreational games - indoors ánd outdoors if weather permits.

FIRST WEEK OF CAMPS

Thursday 22 December:
To kick off winter fun at camp, our explorers will make and decorate special festive trees before making their own pretty penguins.

Friday 23 December:
This morning our explorers will make egg carton reindeers cute enough to join Rudolph and the gang. Adventurers will learn how to make a snowstorm in a jar and later on all campers will make a special snowman light. All campers will finish the day enjoying sports and recreational games.

Monday 26 December: ***CLOSED FOR NATIONAL HOLIDAY***

Tuesday 27 December:
Explorers are getting ready for the New Year, crafting colourful calendars and they will also enjoy a paper plate polar bear craft. Brrr, so cool! The Adventurers will decorate mugs as they choose – perhaps choosing inspiration from festive fun with family or the natural world around us before making marvellous marble festive cards. All campers will end the day with sports and recreational games.

Friday 06 January:
It’s party time! Today we celebrate the end of a festive holiday of fun, games and friendship.
