Summer school- summer vacation 2017

Week 26 (26-30 June) and week 33 (14-18 August)

For the third time Ekebergparken and EKT Rideskole og Huspark have the pleasure of offering Summer school to children from 8 to 14 years old. If you like art, creative activities, caretaking of farm animals, horses and riding – then this is the ultimate summer school for you!

The day begins at the farm where we learn about animal care and meet the animals. Some days we will ride on horses in the forest or horse and carriage. After lunch we will walk together to Ekebergparken where we will learn about the exiting art in the park. In Hakkespettene we will do workshops and activities where we learn different artistic techniques. For example will we make sculptures and paint inspired by the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch.

Price per week per child: NOK 2950,-
