First Year Camp 2015 – Let’s Build A Life


We will be camping from 20-23 January 2015 at African Imprints, Kirkwood. We meet at Somerstrand Gemeente on Tuesday January 20 at 13:00. At the camp we will have morning and evening sessions presented by ministers – not “Bible lessons, but informative sessions focusing on preparing you for student life. We want to build lifelong relationships. By meeting and making new friends at the camp, your first weeks at NMMU will be so much easier! We as congregation will be there for you, no matter what – even just for a lift to the airport.


Sport, Watersport, Praise & Worship, Devotions, Socializing, Info on University Life, Making New Friends! Lots of energy, more than enough “chill time”, GREAT experiences!
