Herman, along with enthusiastic colleagues, provides survival day camps for kids. His passion is around teaching children to play safely in nature with things that may at first seem a little scary, but don't have to be.
His experience and expertise come from many years in both the Dutch Marine Corps and the Commandos. Among other adventures, he's been hot in the Dutch Antilles, Beliz and Martinique; and cold and wet in Scotland and Norway. Currently, he is a fireman and rescue diver with the dutch fire service.
(And he likes to watch Bear Grylls on National Geographic too!)

And Rest. 

ASA Summer Survival Camps Edition 2016 are done.  What a riot!  

Each week had its own feel and activities that took over - i loved the invention of three-trampoline-volleyball, speed jenga and tug of war on the slip 'n' slide.  And so glad we finished camps with the daring 'drop off the zipwire into the water' crew.

Thanks to all, it was our pleasure to host you.  See you again.
Herman, Rachael and the ASA crew.
