Are you the adventure-minded type and nuts about animals? Then this camp is perfect for you! You'll be spending the week doing fun and interesting activities centred on the care of animals. The highlight of the week is a visit to the real jungle at Burgers’ Zoo in the town of Arnhem AND you will visit Apenheul where you can find all kinds of monkeys!
Walking through a forest full of stray monkeys, you don't want to miss that! A visit to Apenheul where the monkeys walk along the trees, bushes and visitors(!) is a really fun experience! With participating in the Animal Camp you also support the Apenheul Natuurfonds (ANF), a charity for monkeys and nature, and you will receive a original Apenheul cap in the monkey tracking package!
You'll be going on a World Nature Expedition at Burgers' Zoo and participate in a exiting quest in a canoe at Markant. You'll be standing eye-to-eye with a real ostrich at the ostrich farm and you'll be visiting an animal farm where ducks, chickens and even a boar are freely roaming about. Do you dare to pet all of the animals? You will take care of all of the animal that run around the grounds at Markant Outdoorcentrum. Ofcourse there is plenty of time left for even more adventures or to relax on the beach and around the campfire.
You'll stay at the group accommodation building of Summer Camps Holland which is situated on the premises of Markant Outdoorcentrum in the village of Braamt. The building is exceptional! It is an eco-friendly, round-shaped wooden building complete with a green roof and an open fireplace in the middle. The bedrooms have three bunkbeds each and are adjacent to the central area. Together with the other Summer Campers of your age you'll stay in the group accommodation building and you take part in the camp's activities, such as evening games, starting a campfire, a dropping (you are dropped somewhere and need to find your way back) and of course a fun and entertainment evening. All breakfast, lunch and evening meals will be served from the restaurant facilities on the premises. The restaurant, however, is frequently used for other occasions and activities as well, such as our party evening and movie night and it is the place to meet kids from other camps. Furthermore, the large premises of Markant Outdoorcentrum is the ideal location for many camp activities and exciting (evening) games.
