The picture below is the house. It is like a townhouse. One building composes several houses. We were assigned in one of these.

In my case, I was mixed with male students because I was with my husband. Usually, male and female are assigned not in the same house.
You cannot choose the place unless you participate this summer camp as a group. Regarding the room assignment, the school considers age group and so on.

There is a refrigerator, gas stove, microwave oven, an electronic pod, a coffee maker, pans, pods, utensils,a knife, and a chopping board so on.
Basically, you do not need to bring extra thing to stay here. It is good enough!
But take note, knife here is not sharp enough and a glass chopping board is not so usable. If you want to chop groceries a lot, you might be stressed of using them.
Living space option!
So, in the vacant time, we can enjoy one of these.
Well, I wrote several options, but my husband and I enjoyed the most strolling around the place after dinner. We simply appreciated the nature by doing so.

Make sure the bike has both lights, front and back and they are functioning. Summer in Netherlands is long. Sunset is around 9-10 pm. Most likely, you may not bike after sunset. But there was the case going to a bar/restaurant in the nearest town and coming back very late.
Then, a bike needs light. It avoids traffic accident and avoid to pay penalty! Police penalizes you if you do not have bike lights.

There is a restaurant inside the accommodation. If you are tired of cooking, then here would be another option.
Of course, in the town, there are several look-nice restaurant.
By the way, I have never dined in the Netherlands. Then, this time, I finally experienced eat-out, it was pancake house as a part of class activities.
So far, my experience in Drenthe was good. If my friends think of taking Dutch summer class, I may recommend Drenthe option.
