NATURE AS A PLAYGROUND
Nature always plays a central role at Beleef Lauwersoog. We love nature as it gives children – and ourselves just as much – the feeling of freedom. Nature knows no obligations, judgement or rules. A feeling of freedom that often leads to a feeling of fulfilment and happiness.
Nature offers a huge playground at the National Park Lauwersmeer. A tree stump becomes a monkey bar, the beach turns into one big sandpit and the bushes become the best hiding spot during hide and seek. Let your fantasy run wild and just fully enjoy nature!
If needed and possible we will adjust the activity to make it suited for the youngest of the group.
Kids Party in nature
Playground – A new one is on the way!
Next to Waddenpavilion De Noorman is currently a big wooden pirate ship for kids. There are plans to replace it with an even better and bigger playground.
Expected date of placement is somewhere in 2020…
Experience path Lauwersom
The township of De Marne has constructed a floating footpath in 2015 that connects the educational water playground with the fishing port of Lauwersoog. A beautiful route to walk amongst and enjoy nature.
The path will take you across an orchid-meadow and give you a good chance of spotting some waterbirds, dragonflies, and (in the evening) hunting bats.
Tip: The distance between Het Booze Wijf and Waddenpavilion De Noorman is about 2 km (1,2 miles). A perfect distance for a proper walk that takes you across the Experience path and through the harbour.
More information about his route? You can find it on the hiking routes page, titled as the ‘De Noorman Route‘.
State Forest Management
Beleef Lauwersoog cooperates a lot with the State Forest Management. For kids there are also a lot of fun possibilities.
Kids can get their Forest Trooper diploma in the ‘forest-shed’ or play at the ‘cabin-woods’. For the youngest – and secretly also fun for the older kids – there is a ‘leprechaun path’. The State Forest Management regularly organises fun activities for both the young and old.
