We offer programmes that extend over three days and two nights and can include camping on a reserve or eco-venue.
You’ll learn about fire safety and species conservation through races and activities, puzzles, crafts, hiking and stargazing – all while enjoying the magic that an outdoor camping experience offers!

Reserves that offer overnight programmes for schools:

Vrolijkheid is a striking, rugged nature reserve in the Breede River valley, about 15km south of Robertson on the road to McGregor. The rocky landscape is starkly beautiful, dominated by patches of succulents, dwarf trees and shrubs.
Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve
Originally known as Melkhoutskraal, the Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve encompasses 250 hectares of indigenous forest in the Langeberg region, close to Heidelberg. It has only been a reserve since 1986 and was declared a World Heritage Site in 2004.
