Summer camp

Every summer, in July and August, “The Laughing House” opens its doors for the children outside of the yearly school programme, through the Summer Camp experience.

During these months, children from 1.5 to 7 years old can join a programme on a weekly basis that includes a mix of activities, combining them with water games in our lovely garden.

The programme’s theme changes every week. The programme is based on playing and “learning by doing”. See the programme’s description below:
