Tuesday 09 / 16 August - Botanical Gardens, Adventure parks & boat trip across Lake Zurich

Have you met Isabela?

Isabela is the perfect child, with powers to make flowers blossom. That’s why today we will get creative with our own flowery bouquets, magically change a white flower, into a different colour and head over to the Botanical Garden in Zurich, where we will discover so many different varieties of plants - in full bloom! After that an adventure playground awaits - be sure to pack a change of clothes, as we most probably will get wet! And to finish the day off, we will hop on a boat and make our way back to Academicus.

We are so lucky to have found you! I can say, you were born to make kids happy! They've made such great memories during the camp and for that I am deeply grateful! I must confess, I was sad today when I realised that the camp ended. Every afternoon, I was so excited to hear what kind of adventures they experienced! Hope we can see you as often as possible!
