Main Events

We are always excited to have old campers return to join us for a few nights, or for a favourite expedition. Their memories and stories of adventures had on the camp in their time support the traditions of camp and are always welcome.

Here are some of the main events:

Advance Party

Boys Arrive

Meet at the St Thomas’ Church parking lot outside Bishops (Campground Road, Rondebosch) at 7am if you require a lift to camp.

Rocklands Champagne Breakfast

Adjie or Commie will be leading a 6am full-frontal charge up Rocklands for a sumptuous Champagne breakfast near the summit (juices for boys). Weather dependent!

The Epic Pirate Battle

Arrrrrr me maties! Bring your wacky hat and water pistol; it’s gonna be chaos out there!

Visitor’s Day

Eucharist is held early on Sunday morning, when most of the campers head off for beach games. Parents are welcome to join the camp for tent inspection at 10:30 followed by the Family Service. Thereafter all visitors are invited to an American-style hotdog and ice-cream feast, though they are also welcome to bring their own picnics and relax on the lawn.

Lunch will be followed by the sports events starting promptly at 14:00. These will include the hotly contested Sisters Tug-of-War, Fathers & Sons Canoe Races and of course the Land and Water race for the boys. Visitors’ Day and Family Weekend closes after tea at 16:00.
