Clothing advise: take a warm sweater and a raincoat with you, and swimming clothes. The weather in Holland changes a lot by the western winds from the Northsea. Be prepared for warm (max.30 degrees), but also for cold days (minimum 17 degrees). At camp bedlinen and towels are provided for, but do take towels with you for your homestay. A bit selfsupporting is nicer.
