Forest Way Outdoor Outreach Stutterheim Border Eastern Cape South Africa.

Hidden in the Khologha (Xhologha) Forest, Forest Way offers a unique experience of the outdoors and Godís creation. Lush vegetation, evergreen lawns, majestic trees and the sound of mountain streams make this converted forest station the place to absorb the peace, walk the trails and talk out the joys. But also to stretch out your team working, test your thirst for adventure and be challenged in body soul and spirit. Where Knysna loeries and Cape Parrots beckon you from yellowwood and pine trees, and the waterfalls invite a taste of mountain water.

o††† Our Main Venue has 70 beds in 10 sleeping units. It has an Outdoor Education/Christian camping/large youth group orientation with double and single bunks and 6-8 beds in a room. The spacious 225m2 hall is ideal for large meetings, with a fireplace that warms on wet or cold days. A separate attractive dining hall adjoins the kitchen

o††† Cedar House is small group/conferencing orientated. It has 16-22 beds in 4 rooms, a separate dinging room and the delightful Loerie conference room which seats 16-32 in different layouts, on mostly padded chairs.

Both venues have a volley ball court, open spaces and can be supplied with a TV, VCR, whiteboard and overhead projector. There is also a tuckshop.† The challenging course, abseil tower and other elements are used by our programme staff. The renowned food is planned and prepared with your group in mind. No set menus here.

The attractions of the Centre do not detract from the lush indigenous forest. Marked walks will lead you on a wide variety of walks through dense forest laden with lichen and lianas over streams of pure clear water. A visit to the waterfall is a must.

Our experienced staff is committed to ensuring that you leave reluctantly with memories of life-changing experiences. Each programme is designed to satisfy your needs. Adventure, experiential learning, teambuilding and environmental experiences are knitted together to ensure that you leave with more than you arrived. And what adventure is better than an encounter with the living God? Schools programmes might include abseiling on our training tower, building a shelter in the forest, cooking on your own potjie, learning to use a compass, tackling the challenging course, raft building, cooling off under a waterfall, finding life in a forest stream or spending a night under the stars.

Forest Way is staffed by a committed team of experienced activity leaders for whom constant training and enrichment is a priority. All staff has emergency aid certification and has appropriate qualifications in the fields that they lead. Forest Way is a member of Christian Camping International (Southern Africa).
