We are living in a crazy world where kids are under extreme pressure from school and sports and all aspects of life. They are expected to think and reason like little adults right from Grade 1. Heartland Adventure is a place where kids can be kids. Where things that are uncool ‘out there’ are so super cool ‘on camp’. Where fun and adventure is found in the beautiful simplicity of the outdoors rather than in the trappings of technology, indoors.
Heartland Adventure is a place where kids can be kids.
Heartland offers a safe, adventure-filled experience where Junior School kids can play, discover and develop new interests and passions, all in the surrounds of the great outdoors. We offer a diverse program which includes adventures, creativity, performing arts, fitness, survival etc etc … so each kid can choose how their personal adventure will play out.
Passionate about children
CARING FOR YOUR CHILDREN
At heartland, we will keep our groups small enough to be nurturing but large enough for kids to feel a part of a vibrant community. The kids will be cared for by kind, patient and well-trained Mentors, so that the environment is one filled with love, security and heaps of fun.
Our Mentors have been selected because they are passionate about children and they want to have a positive influence on the hearts and minds of your little ones.
The Mentors form an integral part of your child’s experience at Heartland Adventure and their excitement and enthusiasm creates an atmosphere that is charged with energy, courage and creativity.
Come to Heartland for a totally unforgettable adventure.
Inspired by God
Founded on passion
Centred in love.
HOW TO GET TO HERE
Heartland Adventure is run at the foot of the mountains in the Porter Estate. To access us, you will need to drive into ‘The Range’ and head through the parking around the left side, past the tent and up to the top where you will see the Heartland Banners. Our Mentors will be there to welcome you and get any outstanding indemnity forms signed before walking your kiddies up to our Heartland ‘Boma’ which is just a few minutes away.
You are welcome to join them for the walk so that you can see where they will be spending their day.
WHAT YOUR KIDS CAN EXPECT
Your precious kids will be nurtured in the best way possible. We have a child to mentor ratio of 7 to 1 and mentors will be present with their group of kids throughout the day.
We have a strict buddy policy which means that no child will be left alone at any time. If a child needs the toilet or needs to collect something from base camp, they will always take a friend with them.
Every child will be required to wear a life jacket while participating in any water-sports no matter how experienced they are at swimming.
All Mentors are trained in First Aid and will be vigilantly on guard during water activities and free time.
PROFESSIONAL HEALTH CARE
We have a doctor on call and we are only 15 minutes away from Constantiaberg Medi Clinic or Melomed.
We all know how important food is for a healthy, happy adventure experience. Heartland will ensure that there is always ample food, ample variety and ample nutrition. All meals will include fresh vegetables prepared in a cunning way to ensure that they are devoured by our energetic campers.
There will be two snacks served every day and a healthy spread at lunchtime.
WHAT TO BRING?
Kids must wear clothing that can get dirty and comfortable shoes to run in. Bring a costume, towel and a water bottle and a warm top in case it gets cold.
There will be no cell phones allowed at heartland adventure, apart from those which the Mentors will carry and these will be strictly for safety purposes. This is a technology free zone as our main emphasis is to encourage kids to enjoy the natural beauty of the outdoors, the simplicities of playing old-school games and the untold joy of socialising face to face with other campers.

Activities on offer
All in a day
At Heartland, our days are broken up into three ‘Fun Times’ namely Adventure Time, Free Time and Activity Time. These fun times are separated up by meal times and snack times.
The morning ‘Adventure Time’ encourages the kids to complete a number of exciting and fun challenges all in a friendly and nurturing environment. It is all about team-work with a healthy competitive spirit at the heart of it.
Amazing Race | Olympic Games | On an adventure with Todd and Boo | Seek a Treat | Animal Tracking | Treasure Trek
The ‘Free Time’ is an hour where kids can completely relax, read a book, chat or get involved in recreational sport and games. There will be no pressure to participate and each day can be completely different. Our world is so filled with structure, pressure to perform in everything from academics and sport and even socialising. Here at Heartland, we will strive to remove all pressure and structure so that kids can actually get bored – and then of course look forward to their up-coming Activity Time.
The ‘Activity Time’ is when kids get to choose an activity according to their personal interests and talents. Kids are invited to choose their activity each day so that they get to choose how their Heartland experience plays out.
- Creative Crafting
- Fun Boot Camp
- Rhythm and Dance
- Make and Master
- Pony Time
On a Mission
Nurture. Nature. Adventure
Our mission and purpose is to provide a wonderful solution for those working moms who are unable to be with their kids over the school holidays.
We will provide a healthy environment for your kids to play, explore and re-discover a passion for the outdoors.
Heartland Adventure is founded on these three tenets:
Heartland is a place where your kids will arrive as guests and leave as family.
We commit to love them, have heaps of fun with them and keep them safe.
Your kids will meet new friends, be encouraged by their peers and feel entirely loved by their leaders and mentors.
Heartland is a place that displays the beauty of the mountains, the treasure of water and the freedom of the outdoors. A place where your kids will feel the sun on their face and dirt underfoot. We will remind them that the simplest things in life are often the most enjoyable and we will give them endless opportunities to have fun fun fun.
Heartland is a place where you kids will be given endless opportunities to explore, experience and enjoy new adventures, activities and delights. They will be encouraged to be creative in their outdoor play, to be fearless in their adventure and be completely child-like in their approach towards the group games and ice-breakers.
WITH CHRIST AT THE CENTRE
Heartland Adventure is a God-inspired venture and He will be welcomed at the heart of everything that we do. Although it may not always be spoken, we will at times take an opportunity to give thanks for His awesome creation which we enjoy as our playground for the week.
Although we are not a Christian camp as such, the mentors and leaders will pray and trust that God is with us in everything that we do. As part of the program, we will sing grace before meals and prayers before bed-time. Children may choose to participate in these songs or not.
Heartland is the perfect venue for a Party Adventure. We have a variety of activities that you could include over and above the amazing adventure which could be any of our standard adventure experiences or we could create a unique adventure experience just for the Birthday Boy or Girl.
