Due to the weather conditions we recommend long sleeve clothes and a winter coat. Also bring an umbrella or rain coat. The dressing code during the hub is informal. There will be some restaurant diners where you might want to informally dress up. There is a swimming pool on site, so bring your swimming suits.
We advise you to bring a backpack to bring along on excursions with your lunch and other necessities.
There are no towels or soaps included at the accommodation. Towels can be provided at extra expense.
For every participant we ask to bring one extra (clean) shoe to use for one of the activities. You will not be able to use this shoe for the duration of the hub, and will get it back after in the same condition.
There are shops nearby and even a supermarket on the park for any forgotten belongings. Maestro debet cards are widely accepted in the country, other debet/credit are less commonly accepted in stores. They can be used to take cash from any ATMs. A Dutch sim card can be bought at the airport or at any of the larger supermarkets.

The Netherlands is not directly affected by the war in Ukraine. Ukraine is located more than 2.000 kilometers from the Netherlands and the Netherlands has no specific ties with neither Ukraine nor Russia. The Netherlands takes in a fair share of Ukrainian refugees. This is done in professional centers, where housing and facilities are provided to the refugees. The Netherlands is affected economically by the war, but due to the social character of the country, this will not affect your safety.

Participation in most of the activities is optional. Every participant joins only the activities that they like.
The only activities where participation is mandatory are the group meetings and any connecting activities. If you will not be able to join these activities, please discuss this with the program manager in advance.
The majority of the activities in the program is suitable for children from about 3 years old. Please look at the detailed program and make your own consideration if your child would enjoy the activities and if your child is able to behave in an appropriate way during the activities.
For teens joining the Worldschooling Netherlands who are interested in the IQ teens program, we can make a special offer. At the reduced rate of an additional €599, the Worldschooling teens can join the full IQ teen program, but are under the supervision of the parents. The teens interested in this offer will go through the same registration process as the IQ teens.
The IQ teen camp is set up for children who seek challenge on an intellectual and philosophical level. If you recognise your teen in this description, the IQ teen camp activities are probably suitable for them. Since the camp consists of an intense program with other teens while discovering a different culture, we ask the teens to have an open minded and motivated attitude.
We will always hold an interview with the teen before finalising the registration, to discuss if the teen fits the above profile. We will advise against participation if we feel the teen does not fit the profile, and the teen will not enjoy themselves or take away from the enjoyment from others.
Parents who will be working full time during Worldschooling Netherlands are welcome to join at a reduced fee of €24 per day. This Working-Parents fee allows them to stay at the park with their family, but does not include any of the scheduled activities. The working parent is welcome to join any of the activities on their free days, at an additional fee. Participation for working parents is only possible when there is availability. Early reservations of the activities is essential. Availability can not be guaranteed until the start of the program.
Maximum 1 member per family, provided there is at least 1 other full time adult participant.
No other discounts are applicable on the Working-Parent fee.
Pets are allowed on the park at an extra fee of €3 per night. There is a maximum of 2 pets per cabin. Please keep in mind that we will be out for long days and the pet should be able to be by itself.
For small families it is possible to share your cabin with another small family. In this case both will be charge the lower fee of a larger family. We can assist in finding another interested family.
Worldschooling Netherlands offers a month program. We do not offer shorter stay options.
Our program is designed in a specific way with the goal to create a community where life lasting friendships are built. For this reason we advise all participants to join from the opening until the farewell party. Joining later will give you and your children a disadvantage in bonding with the other participants. Leaving early will make you miss some of the most valuable moments with the community. In case you will have to join later or leave early, please take this up with us in advance, to discuss the impact that this will have for you and the community.
