Cape AgulhasDates: Saturday 27 June – Friday 3 July; Cost: +/-R600 per person
Vision: We will be working with Peter and Clemy, who lead a small church group of people in Agulhas, on the Southern Cape Coast.
We will run a holiday club program for +/- 120 underprivileged children from the area, that they have been working with for many years.
We will also join in at their church meeting on the Sunday.
Most people in the community speak Afrikaans, so if you are able to communicate well in Afrikaans, it will be a great help.

Winter SchoolDates: 29 June - 2 July; Cost: none
Vision: We will go into an under-privileged school in the Cape Town area for 4 days with the aim to get to know a bunch of about 50 Grade 8 learners who have volunteered their holiday time to learn more. We will be doing a variety of lessons with them, for example, lessons in Mathematics, English and Life Orientation however the purpose behind it all is to have fun together and build into their lives. On the final day we will probably take the kids on an outing.

Coastal CampDates: 30 June – 3 July; Cost: +- R 550 per person
Vision: This road trip- style camp will be filled with fun, adventure and a lot of great surf. Our main aims are: finding and surfing the best possible waves as regularly as possible, deepening our personal relationship with God and building friendships with each other through intentional times together. We encourage surfers with any range of experience to join us, however we have found that this is probably not the best trip to start learning the art from scratch.
