Heritage Hunt

“DEEP WATER” Heritage Hunt in Schouwen

Dream Team busy to prepare Atlantic Bridges official summer start off in Schouwen.

It's june, opening month of the official summer season. Most people will agree that the best time of the year is ahead of us: A time with less school and more ice cream, long days and short nights, sunshine and outdoor activities.

We invite you to take advantage of the warmer temperatures and come together for varied summer activities around the weekend of the 5th and 6th of july. Together with a group of young people from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we will especially explore the islands of Noord-Beveland and Schouwen-Duiveland.

The start will be an 'Independence Day Welcome Party' on Friday 4th in Wissenkerke, where everybody is welcome to meet our guests from America. During the following days the group will stay in guest homes in the region, discover the Dutch culture and come together with people the same age for several small activities.

Highlight of the weekend, however, will be the Sunday with a Heritage Hunt all over the island of Schouwen. This Heritage Hunt will be our third Heritage Hunt in this year. We have already had very successful ones, the first one in February in Antwerp, the second one in Canterbury (UK) during easter.

This time, young people will walk a tour on the Schouwen-island in order to discover cultural and religious heritage. At 5.00 pm we will have a MeetPoint in Zierikzee. Everybody is invited! We will have games, music and time for socializing and reflecting the day. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

We are looking forward to the upcoming heritage hunt in Schouwen and try to make it as unique and special as possible, so that even the people who live in Schouwen will be astonished by their island and its history and the entire intercultural day.

Everyone who still has a sense of discovering the unknown is invited to join our adventure!
