Summer Camps Holland has been organizing Summer Camps for children and youth in the Netherlands and the Ardennes for over 10 years! Our Camps are not only fun, but they are also safe. Quality and safety are guaranteed by the Dutch Certification Mark for Children’s Holidays (Dutch: Keurmerk KinderVakanties). Our outdoor activities are Tüv certified and we only work together with organisations who are members of the Dutch Outdoor Sports Association, VeBON (Dutch: Verening voor Buitensport Ondernemingen Nederland).
We form partnerships with high-quality partners, such as Markant Outdoorcentrum, Mountain Network and Sailing School Neptunus. They have dedicated in-house expertise and experience to guarantee a successful holiday week.
