Activities / Participation:
It's up to you. We are an informal club that will respect your
privacy. We do organize walks, etc, but it's your weekend and therefore
How much does it cost:
The fees are as follows:-
Membership is currently R250.00 per annum (Pensioners R125). To give us all a chance to get
to know one another, you are not committed to become a member for the
first three camps. We charge a rally fee at each camp of R25.00 (
for wood, rally stickers, chocolate drink, milk, sugar, etc ). The only other cost, apart from your petrol, is the campsite
fee, which is usually at reduced rates. Naturally, it's up to you to
bring your own food and drinks unless otherwise stated.
What about the Kids?
No problem! Many members have children, so they should enjoy
themselves just as much as the grown ups. At Christmas, Easter and Guy
Fawks we organize special events for the youngsters.
The only rules imposed are those outlined in our constitution.
We camp once a month,
every month and try to take advantage of long weekends and where
possible, school holidays as well.
On "normal" weekends we try to limit our travelling distance
within a 1 hour radius of Port Elizabeth but during long weekends we do
relax this rule and travel further.
We try to not visit a campsite twice in one year to prevent members from
becoming bored with sites.
Although we are a camping club, both tents and caravans are allowed.
Membership is limited as to keep the club as intimate as possible.
