Spring Vacation Camps 2022

February 06, 2022 By Mark Schiefelbein 0 Comments

Spring is right around the corner and Voorjaarsvakantie is upon us. Here's a list of day camps to keep the kiddos busy and learning!

There was another lockdown around Christmas and many camps had to be canceled, but come back they have, with lots of options like multi-sports, dance, soccer, arts & crafts, hockey, and even swimming, cooking or ice skating. Let’s hope all the camps can take place during the upcoming spring vacation.

Here’s all the camps that have been announced so far. We’ll update this list as much as possible when we find out about new camps or cancellations. To check for updates, also see Mark's website.
