Running every week, all summer long – from 1 July to 3 September.

For over 12 years, Zein International Childcare has been running its infamous Holiday Activity Day Camps for international and Dutch children. Over time Zein has developed – and constantly improved – a approach that offers all children, from 4 to 12 years old, a great holiday experience.

Thanos Papanastasiou, Pedagogic Manager Out of School Care at Zein International Childcare: “For our Holiday Camps we have developed a unique programme that puts great emphasis on two decisive factors. First, the fun factor. The camps should be FUN in the first place and children should have the feeling they are joining a wonderful adventure! By offering themed activity camps, such as Cookery Camp and Adventure & Survival Camp, each with a wide range of exiting activities and two field trips per week, there truly is something on offer for every child – whatever their interests. Additionally, the fun shared by the children whilst developing their skills and discovering new talents, allows for new friendships to be formed quickly. Second, our professional and caring teachers make sure individual attention is given to each child to make them feel welcome, heard and safe – ensuring a holiday camp experience to remember”, says Papanastasiou.

There are various themed day camps to choose from – so whether your child’s a sports enthusiast, or someone who loves outdoor adventure, has an artistic mind or considers themselves a performer – at Zein, they are sure to find a Holiday Camp that will suit! All weekly programmes are complimented by two exciting field trips. Wondering what the children think about Zein’s Holiday Camps… Watch the video to find out!

As the official childcare provider to international schools in The Hague, English is the main language spoken – but many of the professional and experienced teachers and workshop instructors are international and speak multiple languages. In addition, all our teachers are officially first aid trained.

This Summer, the day camps run from 1 July to 3 September on Monday – Friday from 08:00 – 18:30 across four locations in The Hague and surroundings – allowing each week to offer a variety of themes and fieldtrips to choose from. Families are free to select any of the ‘camp sites’ and, because all locations are registered and fully licensed, working families can claim part of the costs for the camps back via the Dutch Childcare Allowance. Zein’s registration office will be happy to help you apply.
