More information about the location:  Groepsaccommodatie Samuel Naardenhuis. See also photos below.
Getting there by public transport is unfortunately not easy…

  • Bus 403 with destination to Rockanje (in the evenings and weekends only every 30 minutes)
  • Step out on the bus stop “De Ruy” in Oostvoorne
  • Walk 3,2 km (!)
… so we will do our best to arrange lift for everyone who cannot go by car, or at least pick you up at the bus stop in Oostvoorne so that you don’t need to walk 3,2 km!
Adults: €165
Kids (<16 years old): €105

  • accomodation for 2 nights
  • 3 meals per day, starting with dinner on Friday and ending with lunch on Sunday

Entrance with a terrace with a glass roof

So even if it rains (afterall it will be Autumn in The Netherlands!), we can also play outside (if it’s not too cold).
Common area where all activities will take place
Bedrooms with 2-7 bunk beds

Nice green (public) area behind the building

(But it will be autumn and we are in The Netherlands, so unfortunately sun is not guaranteed in this package 😉
