Drop-in Monkey Caging

Have you heard of Monkey caging? It’s the funniest form of gymnastics there is: running, jumping, climbing, sliding, hiding and bolting without touching the floor! That’s monkey caging for you! Each year during Winter, Sport4kidz organizes, in cooperation with Sports center Universum, smashing monkey caging feasts! And now we even have a second location to use: the Sint-Nicolaaslyceum in South-Amsterdam. Supervised and coached by our capable and enthusiastic teachers, joined by parents who are in the mood to play along, children are able to live it up on the challenging monkey caging track and/or by playing individual games.
