Often, especially during the school vacations, I get the request if I can organize a hike for a group of kids. Up till now that never resulted in an actual hike mainly because the groups are too large to accommodate. Last week I had a hike for a group of kids in the age of 8 to 11 and one 6 year old. They were accompanied by 4 adults. This was the first time I did such a hike. During my weekly hikes I often have a mix of adults and kids; then the kids are always in the company of their parents. That works very well. This time the group consisted of mainly kids. I slightly adapted the easiest hike to make it a bit shorter and skipped some of the more complex explanations I normally give during a hike. The hike went very well even though it took more time then I had expected. The kids were very enthousiastic and very interested to learn of the environment. The reason that in this case the hike for kids was a success is because the group was rather small and the kids were in the company of a sufficient number of adults. Another prerequisite is that the kids understand Dutch because my explanations are in Dutch (or English). Also that was no problem with this group.It was a good experience for the kids as well as for the guide. So from now on I am open for such kind of hikes provided the group is not too large, there are sufficient adult mentors and the kids understant Dutch. The number of kids plus adults should be no more than about 20 people.If you are interested in such an event, please contact me through email or a facebook message (https://www.facebook.com/curacaohiking)
The hiking schedule for the next weeks to the end of October is as follows. Normally I have 2 hikes every week, one on Sunday and one on Tuesday. In this schedule I removed one hike, the Tuesday version of the one from Vaersenbay to Boka Sami and then back to Vaersenbay over the Seru Sami.
All hikes start from the parking place mentioned in the description of the hike.
Each hike costs US$ 10.00 per person to be paid at the start of the hike.
