I am a Wild Water Pirate

Today we turn into pirates: build our own floaty boats, create pirate hats, follow treasure maps and even find mermaids on our way to a super secret splash pool, where we will have a chance to cool down and soak up the summer sun! There is a Pooh stick race in store and also various races at the sports oval to find the hidden treasure. Be sure to pack a change of clothes, as we most definitely will get wet! Oh, did we mention we were also planning a massive water-ballon fight too? Too much fun today!

Wednesday 19.07/ 02.08/ 09.08 -  Process art, Kunsthaus & playground adventures!

I am an Artist

Today we embrace our inner artist and learn that art is more about the process than the product itself.

We will experiment with various materials, inspired by prompts that will arrive to us straight from the TATE Modern Museum in London! After a morning of discovery & creativity we will venture out to the famous Kunsthaus in Zurich followed by an active afternoon at more playgrounds and water-fountains!  Are you ready for all this fun? :)

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!
