Choosing your topics

A wide variety of topics can be explored and camp programmes are unique to each group depending on their age, needs and interests. In preparation for a camp, group leaders will work with our Environmental Educators in the design of a programme.

Some of the potential camp themes include

  • Reptiles and scorpions
  • Geology
  • Fossil hunting
  • Geography
  • Survival and navigation skills
  • Art, writing and photography (must provide own cameras)
  • Life skills and self-development

The following are examples of activities

  • Hiking with exploration of Fynbos and Karoo biomes
  • Animal tracking workshop at first light
  • Visit to Stadsaal or Truijtieskraal for rock formation viewing
  • Night walk with astronomy lesson and UV light scorpion search
  • Visit to leopard or caracal kill site
  • Setting up and checking a camera trap
