FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the meeting point and pick-up?
The children usually meet at:
SVV Scheveningen at Laan van Poot 38 C at 9:00h.
The daily programme ends at 16:00 h. After 16:00 h there will be pick-up time and free playtime from 16:00 h-17:00 h at the same location as well.
If the regular Amforca Kids Club after school programme is on during a sports camp day, the children can choose one of those activities on that day if there is a space available. These lessons usually take place from around 15:45 h - 17:00 h depending on the lesson. (FYI: There will be no after school programmes during official school holidays)
What does my child need for a sports camp?
Sports gear: Shorts and long sports trousers, T-Shirt, sweater or zipper and sports shoes (football shoes for the football camp would be great).
Wind/rain jacket and outdoor shoes are recommended. For outdoor camps a spare gear incl. spare socks is recommended. The children should take their own water bottle/drink bottle. Snack box with a little, healthy snack is allowed as an addition, but the kids will be already be provided with lunch and snacks every day. Sunscreen in summer!
Will my child/children get lunch, snacks and drinks?
The children will get lunch and snacks such as fruit and musli bars or sultana snacks. For lunch, the children will also get lemonade or water. Every child should bring a (refillable) water bottle as well. When the group is on a day trip the children will usually have lunch there. This can be pasta, sometimes a Dutch snack lunch (maximum once a week but we try to avoid too much fried food), pancakes or a healthy snack box depending on the day trip. The children will eat together with the teachers and the trainers.
On which days there will be the field trips?
At a full week sports camp the field trips are usually planned between Tuesday and Thursday, depending on the weather. The Mondays and Fridays are normally days on which the children stay at the location. Exceptions are made for the ski camp, for example. You will be informed in advance if the plan changes.
Trip day to the beach - will my child be allowed to swim in the sea?
For safety reasons the children are not allowed to swim in the sea when we have a day trip to the beach.
Specials / other day trips
For day trips to locations, which are not in walking distance, there will be a bus organized, which especially booked for the trip. For surf lessons at Surf's Cool a minimum of a Dutch swimming diploma A or similar and the age of at least 7 years is required. You will receive more detailed information about the necessities for these or other external activities depending on the activity and week. We always follow the rules of possible external providers or locations when being on a day trip.
Can I always sign up?
Be aware that you should sign up at least two weeks before the sports camps start to make sure that the registration will still be taken into account. After that there is no guarantee that your child can still be accepted. Anyhow, if the registration system still allows you to sign-up for a sports camp or mini's camp, registration is still possible in general.
