Kids holiday land
On the premises of the city estate De Kemphaan is the holiday house of the foundation called ‘Kindervakantieland’, kids holiday land. Here children can have their holidays free of worries and make new friendships. While doing lots of nice activities, both on the estate and outside of it.
The foundation was started up to offer holidays for kids who otherwise, due to their situation at home, would have no other possibility to go on holiday. The reasons for that can be manifold, such as financial or physical problems. During the holiday weeks, the team of the foundation does various activities with the kids. Sports and games, for instance, hiking tours or scavenger hunts, on the premises of De Kemphaan. In the same week they also make an excursion outside of the estate. Then they go, for example, to the animal park at Amersfoort or to Nemo at Amsterdam. Most important thing is that the kids have fun and get a real holiday feeling, too. Much attention is given to equal treatment of all kids. No one is preferred over the others and no one gets excluded from the group.
