Is your child missing? Assembly points
First Aid Station “De Rotonde” is open from mid May to mid September, from 11am till 7pm, and when it is beach weather from 10am till roughly 8pm. It is among other things the central reporting location for missing children. You will find the First Aid Station at the beach entrance on the Badhuisplein, between beach club 9 and 10, 0031 23 5714445.
Let your child wear a wristband with your mobile phone number on it.
The Search and Rescue organizations have started a national campaign handing out these wristbands to educate people about preventing children from going missing. The wristbands are a useful tool. They can be obtained at the two Search & Rescue stations in Zandvoort.
Don't forget the sunscreen for your child!
Children are very susceptible to serious damage by UV rays in the sunlight: their skin cells are extra vulnerable. Tips from the Dutch Cancer Society: 1. Apply sunscreen at least every 2 hours. 2. Keep children out of the sun between 12 and 3pm. 3. Keep children under 1 year completely out of direct sunlight.
The beach is of course one big playground for children. Building sand castles, playing in the water and looking for sea shells. Everything is possible. But many of the beach clubs too have fun play structures for your children to have fun on.
