Terragon Nature Camps is an all-weather activities camp on the Terragon private terrain. Within our 2.5 acre terrain we have a forest, multiple wagons and magical spaces, a 10-meter tall tipi and lots of other tents. Also the main house functions as a safe heaven during heavy rains and houses the kitchen, toilets, a shower facility and a piano. Terragon Nature Center is located in 400-hectare rural land in Amsterdam, that is part of the national heritage.
A Day at Nature Camp
In Dutch and English- for kids 4-9 - now taking kids up to 11 due to requests
All days start with a gathering at the bonfire where a beautiful fantasy story is told by a fantasy character of the Terragon Woods. From there on, children are free to explore the wilderness, get dirty, run around, jump on the trampoline, make friends and to get immersed in nature through fantasy storytelling and play. Around noon a warm meal is served. Prior to the main meal and after, light snacks and drinks are served.
Throughout the day we have activities like active games in the forest, hut building, yoga, music classes, nature art, as well as educational nature excursions in the farms and gardens nearby, such as visiting cows, sheep and goats, horse riding, vegetable and fruit picking, and lots more. One Golden Rule stands high in Terragon culture. "Niets moet alles kan" = "Nothing is a must do, everything is possible" if you don't want to participate an activity, you don't have to.
Limited spaces. Reserve your spot!
Languages and Special needs
Terragon Nature Camps is an International Camp. Many languages are spoken here by the owners, volunteers and camp counselors. For example English, Dutch, Spanish, Finnish, French and German.
If your kid have allergies or a special diet please bring your own food.
We also have experiences with Autism/ Asperger. We will treat everyone equally and we will adapt and provide them to his/her needs. The only thing we ask for is that kids have a certain level of independence.
