Summer activities for your children
Every year in summer, parents have the same problem: what to do with their children during the long summer holidays?
Solidarité européenne has put together a list of possibilities for you. Some centres also offer activities for all the family – a really nice way to spend some quality time together. If you know of any other centres, please let us know so that we can put the information on our website.
Also, Solidarité européenne is well aware of the situation facing our colleagues with lower salaries. We therefore offer financial help to our members with a net salary of less than 3000€ per month.
This is a club run by the Natural History Museum in Luxembourg. The activities are organised around the theme of nature and are aimed at children from the ages of 6-10 years. They take place all the year. You have to be a member of the club to take part (registration is free). The price of the activities varies – some even being free of charge. Typical price for an activity of half a day is 5 €. The new programme with all the activities for the summer holidays will be available at the beginning of June on their website. They also organise activities for the whole family. Although the main language spoken is Luxembourgish, the monitors also speak French and German and some speak English.
This club is also run by the Natural History Museum in Luxembourg, but targets older children (11-18 years). The functioning of the club is similar to that of the Panda Club.
