An authentic farm experience for kids at The Tree House {While you enjoy a break}

We visited the newly opened {The} Tree House at Boschendal this weekend passed. We were completely blown away by the entire experience along with the quality and friendly service we received from staff. In a nutshell, your kids can learn the importance of sustainability while having fun. It’s an authentic farm experience for kids at The Tree House. All of this happens while you enjoy a delicious meal at The Werf Restaurant or stay over at Boschendal which boasts about 40 beautiful cottages. As parents, we need this kind of break!

The Tree House is open 7 days a week for kids aged between 4 and 14 years old. It truly is an authentic farm and forest experience and I cannot stress enough the amount of valuable information they will learn while having a really good time. For example, they get to pick their own veggies in the garden and learn to turn it into a delicious meal! They get to learn outdoor survival skills, wood work and so much more. It’s an amazing break away from that rushed city life!

Kids are supervised by well trained leaders so you need not worry. You can rather enjoy a scrumptious meal when the kids are whisked away to The Tree House. Of course different age groups attract different interests. For this reason, there are programs specifically designed for young explorers aged 4 to 9 and for farm adventurers aged 10 to 14.

The important stuff

You need to book at least 24 house in advance so that staff can prepare for your childs needs specifically. The Tree House staff will meet your kids at reception 15 minutes prior to their booked activity.

If you’re looking for something to do over the upcoming long weekend, or just need a break with the kids, I strongly recommend Boschendal and The Tree House. Imagine having to enjoy a delicious meal in peace while your kids are in good hands and learning something they will take with them for life!

The Tree House also offers a 5-day program (additional cost) which commenced on 17th June 2019 and ends on the 12th of July 2019. Activities will start at 8am from Monday to Friday and will finish at 16h00 with an option of aftercare until 17h00. For more information on this, please contact Boschendal on 021 870 4211 or email them at reservations@boschendal.co.za
