** doesn't this rainbow popsicle make you think of holidays? **
I might be late for some, because actually my son has been on holiday for the past 2,5 weeks now but the holidays aren't over yet and it might still be worth it to share some of the things I've heard were going on:
They have a whole set of programs for kids from 2 to 17 years old, from 5 day camps, to full on english language camps or drama camps, to afternoon sessions such as soccer, robotics, swimming, tennis, etc.
Amal did the one week Soccer afternoon classes and was really happy about his lessons.
If you want to check out the information, go to their website.
I've enrolled Amal in the one situated in Gandaria City, It's a really great place for kids who need to let out some steam (active kids!) because everyday they offer around 6 different activities in dance, martial arts and aerobics. Amal of course is all into martial arts. It's not that expensive when you think that your child can actually come everyday for 3 sessions if he/she would like.
Joining fee + Monthly fee is around Rp. 600,000. For more info, check out this website.
YUM ORGANIC FARM
Yes, doing a little promotion here :) Our organic farm can be visited any time by a minimum of 10 participants. I would recommend this for kids above 13 years old. The program is around 2.5 hours and kids will learn to make compost, how to plant seeds correctly, make organic pesticide, open a "bed" to plant the seedlings and of course, harvest their own vegetables.
A full 2,5 hour program will cost you Rp. 120,000 and you will be bringing home a nice basket of organic vegetables! For more info, call (021) 7698505 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Go to this website to see pictures and a video of the farm.
KUTAKATIK ARTS & CRAFTS CLASS
Daily classes where kids will cook, paint, draw, make arts & crafts and other fun activities. For ages 3 to 14 years old and situated in Pondok Indah area. Their Holiday Program goes on until mid July. Check out their Facebook page for photos and more info, or email: email@example.com or call 082113131132/08129231376.
SAYANG ANAK AT ALUN ALUN INDONESIA
Alun Alun at Grand Indonesia and Central Park are organizing activities for kids, making animal wayangs and cooking indonesian food. It will be in beginning of July, in the afternoons and costs around Rp. 120,00 to Rp. 150,000 per session. If you're interested, go to their website.
Abrakadoodle focuses on art classes and they have one-week camps during the holidays which costs around Rp. 2,000,000 per week. Amal went there last summer holidays and really had a great time. This year was bad timing but maybe next year :)
