Facilitator Accommodation

Our facilitators are treated to four private bedrooms all ensuite complete with unlimited Wifi access to stream the latest animation for movie nights. Bedrooms are conveniently situated below our campers dorms allowing us to keep an eye on all campers during ''lights out".  

Sports Field

All campers are encouraged to make use of our sports field during some much needed down time. With views of our plain game antelope and the Berg River this definitely makes for a scenic game. Enjoy some touch rugby, cricket or even soccer all refereed by our team leaders.

Our Program

Students will build relationships, develop leadership skills, build their self-esteem and be empowered, walking away with a sense of victory and growth.

Super-Duper Fun

The fun and excitement usually starts on the bus well before we even get to the lodge, so much so that when we arrive on the farm our campers exit the bus already having made new friends! To say that the excitement never ends is an understatement! 

Build Friendships

Boot Camp brings children from various walks of life together to share unique experiences. Through the programs, we have developed and the manner in which we deliver them, we encourage all campers to step out of their shell, make new friends and build life long friendships. 

Create Wonder

To us, there is no greater reward than seeing pure joy and happiness on our little one's faces as they scale the cargo net, catch a fish, win the ultimate survivor challenge or beat their camp facilitators at a game of volleyball.


Our camping program focuses on the fun elements of leadership development, trust building, team motivation, encouragement and teamwork. Our camp facilitators are hand picked and are put to the test by leading camp with a constant source of passion, energy and enthusiasm.
