“Krokus Vakantie” (Feb half-term week) for kids.

All Belgian schools have a week’s holiday at the same time (8th- 12th February) and some of the English speaking schools (for example Antwerp International School) are also off that week.

During holiday times there are a number of kids’ activities available. These range from one-day activities or workshops to camps which are on daily for the entire week.

KIDZ2

This is not an exhaustive list (and feel free to send additional links; I’ll edit to add them) but will provide some suggestions for keeping children occupied, happy and social during their time off. Please note: these activities tend to be popular, and you should enrol your child(ren) as soon as possible to be sure of a place/places. Some are more expensive than others. If your child is not a Dutch speaker, be sure to check that the activity is suitable. Also be aware that some places provide a lunch, and for other activities you need to make sure your child has lunch with them.

Here is a list of Sport Camps and activites in an around Antwerp. The price given is for the full week. For more information (and even details of the Easter holiday agenda) there are contact details on this page.

Museums in and around Antwerp also offer art-based and creative activities at this time. These tend to be one-day workshops, or interactive guided tours, rather than a course for the whole week. You can search by location and age-group  here.
