Activities

At Leaders in Life School & Sports Camps, our fun filled activities for kids are geared towards fostering the development of skills such as confidence, self-belief, and communication. We guide and motivate each group member to strive to reach their goals, encouraging social and personal development.

Leaders in Life’s facilitators are trained for each activity and encourage team spirit throughout youth camp. We want youths that experience camp at Leaders in Life, to really believe in themselves and the potential they have to make a difference in the world.

We would like each child to experience the pride and loyalty that exists when you are part of a team and to understand that team spirit is the key to success. Our core value is that teamwork really does make the dream work!!

ICE BREAKERS & FLAG MAKING

To warm up camp and let campers feel at ease in their new environment our facilitators guide them through our different ice breakers as part of their smaller allocated teams and then as a team on camp. This communicational tool allows kids to identify their roles within their teams and find trust in one another. A great way to energize the kids and kick start camp!

WATER FUN

A great way to cool down on those hot summer days! Situated on the banks of the Sundays River, we have the privilege of offering perfect paddling conditions on a calm safe pool of water. Whether paddling in our canoes or crossing the river on a raft that they have just built kids are guaranteed to have fun.

 

Please note that our river frontage is not fast flowing and reeds closing off either side of the river encloses the frontage we have access to. We do not allow non swimmers to take part in water activities.

TENT BUILDING

Tent building is one of our first activities on camp, a great ice breaker requiring team work and communication. Setting up and sleeping in a tent is a first for many of our campers, creating great excitement and a sense of achievement.

TEAM BUILDING GAMES

Nothing combines teamwork, competitiveness, communication and fun, as much as our team build games. Our staff are present to motivate each team member to strive to reach their goals, encouraging social and personal development. We offer an array of different team building activities that allows kids to work together and combine their different skill sets.

HIKING & ORIENTEERING

A hike up to Percy Fitzpatrick’s grave and Look Out monument (author of Jock of the Bushveld) . Kids get to take in the view of the beautiful Sundays River Valley with the challenge of partaking in a quiz about the history and geography of the valley afterwards.

SURVIVAL CHALLENGE

Teams put their outdoor skills to test with various challenges that require out of the box thinking and team work. Each team is given a set of instructions and materials to accomplish the task at hand. Lets see who has the best survivor skills!

AMAZING RACE

A highlight of camp is combining the previous days activities all into one fun filled amazing race, with all teams having to compete against one another, to top off their time on camp with us.

CITRUS TOUR

On the base of an active citrus farm, a guided tour through the orchards, capped off with a quiz of the knowledge learnt, is a great way for pupils to soak up some citrus knowledge and test themselves amongst each other.

OBSTACLE COURSE

Leaders in Life obstacle course is legendary – it’s a well-loved and popular activity with plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved. As campers negotiate the various obstacles, it’s an experience that will promote teamwork, problem solving, decision-making – as well as being physically challenging.

EVENING ACTIVITIES

At the end of an activity-fuelled day at our youth camp, pupils can braai around the fire and put their culinary skills to test with our potjie competition. Skits is always a great way for the kids to get creative in the evening, or stargazing on a clear African night is a way for kids to unwind before bedtime.

FREE TIME ACTIVITIES

While recognising the importance of keeping pupils busy with our wide range of fun kids activities, we also allocate time for them to unwind and interact with one another outside their allocated teams. There is the river to swim or fish in, table tennis to challenge one another, shoot the hoop and a full size rugby field to run around on.

ZIP LINE & GIANT SWING

Adrenalin Addo’s zipline and giant swing can be added to your school camp activity schedule at an additional cost, if you wish.
