Greystone Camp and Adventure
Being the original Veld & Vlei Centre, Greystone Camp is filled with years of character and brings you the perfect blend between the old and the new. Our friendly staff work hard to present you with a clean camp set in beautiful gardens with an excellent view. We pride ourselves on bringing you the best camp food ever but if you would prefer catering yourself, the choice is yours.
If you are looking for that surprisingly good school outing and leadership course, or a great venue for your church or youth camps, come and experience the peace of our Lord Jesus that so many say is evident here at Greystone.

From the horses mouth…
I will never forget arriving at Greystone and being certain that we were at the wrong place. It was not possible that this place – with its green lawns, clean pool and quaint chapel – would be the venue for our school camp. By the end of the day I was still uncertain – the tasks were fun and the food good! When camps have always been notorious for bad food and worse sleeping quarters, this was paradise! [Visiting Student]

“I really, really enjoyed Dave’s talk on leadership and respect. It was truly inspiring and opened my eyes to so many aspects. Chantell Poirer, Grd 11
“The talk in the chapel was the best part of the trip as it has taught me a lot and added value to my life in ways that are easy to implement and identify. It left me feeling inspired and put a lot of things into perspective. Maseeha Ravat (PMB Girls High)
“The best part was when we had a talk with Dave. It was sort of like a life changing moment because we were given the keys to life – respect, joy and vision. It made me realise the purpose of living and the fact that I cannot achieve alone – I need to work with people whom I will have to respect in order to earn their respect. Tracy Odede
