The Zomerprogramma070 – The City is Ours! will take place from 16 July to 29 August. In every neighbourhood there will be all kinds of things to do for children and young adults between the ages of 4 to 27 years old. Come play sports, do something cultural or go to summer school. Look at all the activities at Zomerprogramma070.

Activities with the Ooievaarspas

The municipality would like all children in The Hague to have a fun vacation. This is why the Ooievaarspas can be used for the following activities:

  • From 19 July to 6 August the Stichting JVA will organise a vacation project at the Duinrell amusement park in Wassenaar for primary school children in The Hague aged 4 to 13 years. For more information and to register go to JVAdenhaag.nl.

  • From 9 to 27 August children aged 4 to 16 years can sign up for a day to do activities at Don Bosco. For each age group there is a programme with sports, games, scavenger hunts, water fights, drama and dance, face painting, arts and crafts and cooking. For more information go to www.donboscorijswijk.nl.
  • YMCA Den Haag is organising a 3-day summer camp from 20 to 22 July and a 4-day summer camp from 16 to 19 August. On these days there will be activities for different age groups. For more information and the locations go to www.ymcadenhaag.nl.

Activities in nature

  • This year there will again be activities in nature this summer, such as picking flowers, making an insect hotel or going on a water safari. The website Naar Buiten lists what there is to do and you can also use the website to sign up for something. Most of the activities are free. Sometimes you need to register in advance.
  • There are also nature and history activities at The Hague's city farms and in the Environmental Educational Centres. Want to go fishing, join an exciting scavenger hunt, or excavate real archaelogical finds? You can register throughZomerprogramma070. It will no longer be possible to register once the activity is full.
