Umlilo Camps

Umlilo_056WB Yeats said that "Education is not filling a bucket but lighting a fire", and this is really the vision for our Umlilo Camps. Umlilo - meaning fire - was the inspiration behind this camp, piloted in 2008. Pupils who show undeveloped potential are selected to learn leadership skills through outdoor adventure, discussion and theory. The aim is to give these pupils the motivation to achieve their potential and to discard the old. Umlilo camps are designed to encourage questioning and better decision-making, to form a change in direction, and to allow growth in the awareness and acceptance of self.
