The LYP SA Adventure Camp 2017 kicked off on Friday afternoon, 17 March, with a total of 25 people in attendance at the Buffalo Gorge Campsite just outside Pretoria, South Africa. We started the camp with a fast on the Sabbath of 18 March and enjoyed Sabbath services in the “bush” and a Bible study.
The accommodation consisted of tents. Hot water for the showers had to be boiled in a donkey geyser (wood fired water heater). It was a good change from everyday life with all its luxuries.
Campers participated in a 20m abseil, rock climbing, horse riding, swimming, a 12km hike, tree and bird identification, table tennis, paintball, evening board games and plenty of fellowship. Many of the activities was a first for some and great memories and friendships were built during the four days of camp.
We are pleased to announce that we will be running a Living Youth Camp for the fourth consecutive year in South Africa during the South African summer holidays in December 2015.
This year’s South African Youth Camp will be held at the Camp Discovery Game Reserve campsite, Pretoria, Gauteng. Our camp will begin on Sunday morning 20 December and end the following Friday, 25 December 2015. We are planning to have a Sabbath service at Camp Discovery on the 19th and 26th and the campers are welcome to stay after service on the 19th. All parents and local members are also invited to attend this special service. Parents are welcome to fetch their children after services on the 26th.
The accommodation will be in two separate dormitories, boys and girls. Some of the activities will include archery, riflery, volleyball, netball, low rope course, obstacle course, night adventure course, trust building challenges, box-cart racing, swimming dance and daily Bible Studies and lectures and much more! Other activities includes a game drive where you can get real close to giraffe, black wildebeest, zebra, eland, gazelle, oryx, red hartebeest and the South African springbok.
The cost of the camp is R1950 (170$) per person that includes all activities and meals. The LYC South Africa is open to teens aged 13-18 and staff from age 19+.
We are also pleased to announce that we will be running our first Pre-Teen Camp during the last few days of the Youth Camp at Camp Discovery.
