Look, I need to get some people to help with this...


‘Seekamp’ is an annual Christian camp held by the ‘Equilibrium Staatmakers’. The camp is held at Boknes in the Eastern Cape during the July school holidays. This camp is aimed at high school learners as well as learners from the Abraham Kriel children’s home and Firlands children’s home within the same age group. The camps’ goal is to give our love so that this sense of community will be evident in the leaders of tomorrow. Each year with the help of our sponsors we are able to take 100 learners to the coast for the week of their lives.

With your help as a sponsor, this year will be our twenty-first successive camp.

‘Equilibrium Staatmakers’ is made up of a group of approximately 30 voluntary students and young adults. They are solely responsible for the organization, funding and the implementation of ‘Seekamp’.
The ‘Equilibrium Staatmakers’ are a registered group of the Transvaal Voortrekkers (welfare-number 021-962-NPO) are thus involved with a variety of youth/community projects throughout the year.

More information about ‘Seekamp’:


‘Seekamp’ does not only offer the learners to explore new parts of our country, but also offers them a chance to learn about the coastal environment. We see this as a key aspect of our camp because many of the learners have never visited the coast before. Together with this we also offer a wide range of activities during the week. Some of these activities include fishing, hiking, snorkeling, horse back riding, rock-climbing, rowing, cycling, lifesaving and other survival tactics. We also visit numerous institutions, monuments, and other historical places of interest. As you can see we have an exciting and unforgettable program to offer!


Learners who can afford to go on the camp themselves pay a minimal fee of R800. The rest of the costs are subsidized by us. Learners who can not afford this are covered by the donations and sponsorships we receive. Therefore no funds are required of them. Because of our financial approach, the students and volunteers need to raise roughly R240 000.00 (between R2 500.00 and R3 000.00 per learner) annually to make ‘Seekamp’ a reality and success. The above costs include bus transit, accommodation, meals, outings, and all activities mentioned above. The cost also covers all clothing and materials the children need.
‘Sponsor a Child’ is an opportunity for you to support our mission by sponsoring a child or through a donation. Help us to put the light back in the lives of our youth!

Your good hearted consideration would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to contact us for any further information that you may require or a more extensive sponsorship proposal.

‘Seekamp’ greetings
