A school is often only as good as the parents. Over 50% of the children
attending the local schools are orphans. So to support the development
of schoolds 25% of the entry fees will go towards buying sports
equipment for location schools. Donations of non-perishable foods (e.g.
meilie-meal, tinned food, long-life milk, beef stock) are welcome
towards school lunches. We will buy the sports kit and deliver the food.
No cash will be given.
Parking: Free parking.
This camp is based around 1954 renovated railway carriages. There is a
large socialising deck and picnic area. We will have a fire going for
people who want to braai their own meat.
