Forest hikes, kayaking, and after-dark frogging are just some of the exciting adventures in nature that children attending this year’s WildED Holiday Camp can look forward to. Hosted by Crocworld Conservation Centre and Nandimvelo Outdoor Education, the holiday camp will run from 19 to 23 December from 8.30am to 3.30pm at Crocworld in Scottburgh.

“This five-day camp will include incredibly fun, safe and engaging activities, all led by our professional group of leaders,” explained WildED Holiday Camp Director, Matt Machell-Cox. “This is a really great opportunity for kids to explore nature, be actively engaged in conservation and have a valuable learning experience along the way.”

Children, aged 8 to 13 years, will get the chance to enjoy animal interactions, adventure games, alternative sports, arts & crafts, as well as after-dark adventures such as Survivor, frogging and a bonfire. During these five days, they will learn how to SUP and kayak safely on the beautiful Black Rock Estuary as well as surf at one of the best and safest KZN beaches. They will hike and explore coastal forests, savannahs and beaches, all the while learning valuable basic survival skills. There is also an Adventure Race planned which combines all the knowledge and skills learned into an epic team competition.

Conservation and nature are at the heart of the WildED Holiday Camp which is why all camp attendees will be immersed in Crocworld’s daily conservation activities such as looking after the birds, mammals and non-dangerous reptiles. There will also be a clean-up restoring local ecosystems while experiencing the incredible local habitats including forests, mangroves, savannah, rocky shores and beaches.
