Summer activities and camps for children

Camp is happening! Children can start looking forward to a summer of unforgettable moments with (new) friends.  Are you looking for some fun activities or a sports/themed camp for your kids this summer in the Leuven region?

All-in-one

The container website www.kampzoeker.be allows filtering per theme, age, period and location.  The site is in Dutch, but you can use a translation add-on (Google Translate for example) to make a first selection and then call the organisers to get more details and to enquire about the possibility for non-Dutch speaking children to join.
