Winter Camp 2022

Join our Winter camp, starting December 12 until December 30, 2022.

We have been working together very mindfully to plan and prepare a winter agenda full of fun and learning! Together we will explore and learn more about sustainability as a lifestyle, nature and much, much more! Sustainable development is a vast subject. We empower children to embrace, understand and address challenges, we also equip them with a raft of skills, values and knowledge, such as creativity, kindness, problem-solving and empathy. Therefore, we have planned engaging activities for the children in order to promote holistic development and learn more about sustainability and nature.
