SUSTAINABILITY CAMP 10-12 y.o.
In Dutch and English
What does it mean to be sustainable?
Learn about living in a sustainable way through fun, hands-on activities in a beautiful nature retreat. Over the course of one week, we’ll teach you about the five major themes of sustainability: land, air, food, energy, and water. There is also plenty of time to enjoy the location and go on nature excursions.
Together with our Nature camps, 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. Older kids learn how to make a fire, how to keep it burning, how to build a proper structure and a lot more.
Around noon a warm meal is served. Prior to the main meal and after, light snacks and drinks are served.
One Golden Rule stands high in Terragon culture. "Nothing is a must to do" if you don't want to participate an activity, you don't have to.
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.
