Holiday camps are run at The Estate in Benoordenhout, The Hague, during all holidays of the British School in The Netherlands. During the summer, this location is open to children from all international and Dutch schools.

The stunning listed building was completely renovated, remodeled and modernised in 2014 and is now recognised as one of the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly listed buildings in the Netherlands.
