It’s Summer! Let’s get to know our new location, our new friends and nothing better than being a superhero. We will play games with our special guests, do arts and crafts, do some training at the training facilities and solve some mysteries that you will have to un-puzzle to get your superhero badge.

 

PS: To be a superhero you also can demonstrate to us during this week, your passion for being kind, helping a friend that is shy or new at our camp, showing others how to recycle, to be respectful, to have a voice and be active. We will be behind you step by step cheering and supporting you. Let’s do this together!

Week #2

June 22nd-26th
The Cool World of Harry Potter

It is tradition for us by now every year to have a “Harry Potter Week” because the explorers love it so much and we always have a blast! We’ll have the sorting hat ceremony, we’ll find out which house you belong to. You could be Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff.

 

We’ll learn how to make wands with the amazing Ms. Olivander, making potions with Hazel, play Quidditch with Madam Hooch and of course meet new Wizards.

Week # 3

Lego Week

Another official and traditional week is our Lego Week, because to play and build stuff with Legos never gets boring. Special this year where you will freely build with a friend or by yourself anything that comes to your mind. You just need to be creative and be innovative in expressing your imagination. Let’s do a Lego Museum this year with unique and fun new designs and show it off to our family and friends on the last day of the week.

Week # 4

Olympic Games Week

We know that sports is something that some children are not that crazy about it, but during our Olympic games week, we promise you that everyone will be able to participate and have fun. We will create sports that will be suitable for all ages and desires, such as relay races, individual races, soccer games, and other games where everyone can shine.

Week # 5

“Let It Be“ Art, Drama, Music and Recycling all in one week

Art is fun. Art is unique. Art is imagination. Art is a form to express love, give a voice to something or someone. So this week throughout art, let’s create a dance presentation or an art by painting or creating something with recycling, singing or writing poetry. You choose and we will support and guide you to develop your project. You can do it with a friend or by yourself or you can work with a team. Our goal is let you express yourself and have fun!

Week # 6
