You can read general information below.
The “Vakantiebos” at Don Bosco Rijswijk:
From 13 to 30 August 2019.
Is for all children from the neighborhood.
You do not need to register in advance.
The activities are (except in the 1st week) from Monday to Friday.
We start at 9.45 am, come on time! We end at 3.15 p.m.
Pay attention! The program lasts until 12.15 on Friday
You can buy tickets at the ticket desk from 9.15 am. The cash register closes at 9:45 a.m., then participating is not possible.
The “Vakantiebos” is for children from 4 to 16 years old. They are divided into the following age categories:
- 4 – 6 years
- 7 – 8 years
- 9 – 10 years
- 11 – 12 years
- 13 – 16 years
The children stay every day (except Friday) at noon on Don Bosco. So always give them a lunch package including drinks. Of course, the lunch package may also contain a (responsible) candy, but preferably as little as possible. Giving money is not allowed, nothing is sold to the children during the “Vakantiebos”. A little money may be given during the excursion, but in moderation!
During the “Vakantiebos”it is very possible that your child will get dirty or wet. Always ensure that your child is wearing clothes that can get dirty. It is also highly recommended to provide swimwear and spare clothing. Especially for children in the age group 4 – 6 it is advisable to give more clothing
The time has come, I'm going to the “Vakantiebos”! Three weeks of games, crafts, sports, getting away and so much more! Let's see if I haven't forgotten anything! What am I wearing?
- Yeah !!! All my clothes can get dirty!
- Is it cold or is it warm? I always make sure that I am wearing the right clothes! My bag…
- My food and drinks, very important!
- My name card and my “strippenkaart”. Otherwise we have to go all the way back home!
- My swimwear and a towel. Yes, when the weather is nice you never know!
- Extra clothes, always handy!
Different than others
At Don Bosco we welcome everyone with open arms. Is your child a little crazy? Does your boundless energy bounce you in all directions? Does she find it difficult to make friends? Or do they feel a little different for another reason? Your children are also very welcome with us! We ask you to always report this to us when you register, so that we can take your children into account!
Children with a more severe disability can also participate in our program. It is advisable to contact us in advance about this. We have many years of experience in organizing fun activities, but we have no experience with special care. Yet we also want to give these children an unforgettable holiday. Do you have more questions about this? Please contact us
A photo moment
To make the Vakantiebos a great memory, the management takes photos every day.
Cool action photos, fun group photos or just spontaneous photos. There is a good chance that your child will also be captured in the photo. We regularly share these photos in the media and on social media such as Facebook and Instagram. We hope that you will find it no problem that we make your child part of the Vakantiebos reminder. If you do not appreciate your child being photographed, you can indicate this in the morning during registration. Being a child again. Do you know that?
Do you hear all those fun stories from your child about what he has done and are you secretly a little jealous? We know that at least! That is why we organize an activity morning for the parents 1 day per summer. What exactly we are going to do is just a surprise. It will certainly be old-fashioned fun. More information about this morning can be obtained from Spela (coordinator 11 – 12)
