A ‘Weird but True’ Enjoyable Dutch School Book Camp

22 October 2015

Last Friday evening, straight after Tanzania Dress up Day (hence the animals on the photos), over 50 children from the Shanghai Dutch School attended the Book camp  and the theme was ‘Weird but True’.

After setting up tents and organising everyone’s bed, pj’s and teddy bear’s, the evening programme kicked off with several ‘weird but true’ experiments organised by Dutch and Belgian IB- students.

We had fountains of Coca Cola, bouncing eggs and filled balloons with air coming from a fizzy drink.

The experiments were followed by a more physical challenge with books, like bookminton, bookrace and ‘swing ur book’.

The remainder of the evening was filled with arts and craft like design a robo,chatting in tents and dinner with Dutch pancakes (home made by several helpful parents) and pizza.

It was a huge success and will definitely be repeated in the future!
