Choose Warriors Academy for the Best Gap Year Abroad!

School Camps

Over the last two decades, the Warriors Academy has segmented itself as a leader in youth development and educational school tours/camps in South Africa. The Warriors Academy hosts several local and international school camps each year.

Our school tours and camps are based on the following principles:

  • Leadership
  • Resolution Enhancement
  • Adventure
  • Risk Taking
  • Grade Bonding
  • Outdoor Pursuits
  • Character Development
  • Group Dynamics
  • Socio-cognitive Development
  • Problem-solving

Our school and youth leadership camp activities promote personal growth and development through experiential learning. We aim to help students understand themselves and their effect on others and the world around them. 

The activities can include the following, obstacle courses, experiential exercises, potjie competition, theatre evening, night walk, orienteering, crazy Olympics, team building, Warriors-Compass time and many more, depending on the outcome requirements of the school. *All activities are subject to weather and availability.

Each tour or camp activities can be adapted to the specific outcome requirements of the school. We can also modify the program's number of days and focus points to align with the school's particular needs. The Warriors Academy can accommodate anything from 20 to 120 learners at a time.

Our Current Youth and School Camp Programs: 

  • South African School Camps – Our local school camps are based on our unique Warriors Youth Leadership Development Program (WYLD) program principles. This program focuses on taking learners out of their learning environments and bringing them back to nature with various experiences. 


  • International School Tours – The Warriors 8-Day International Schools Tour, also known as the Warriors Accelerated Scholarship Program (WASP), is an explosive adventure tour in South Africa. This tour is run in partnership with several prestigious international schools. The program is designed for 16-18-year old’s who are in their last two years at senior school and is scheduled to fit in with the northern hemisphere’s academic year.

  • Rotary Youth Camps – The Warriors Academy has been part of the International Rotary Organisation for the last two decades and runs two Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) camps a year. The concept of Rotary is to bring together businesses and individuals to do good and uplift people in the surrounding communities. For more on our RYLA program, click here.

  • Mindful Parent Workshops – this workshop is run by Rudi Viljoen, human behaviour specialist and coach. It has been specifically developed to encompass elements, experiences and learning aimed at parents committed to enhancing their parenting skills and awareness. As parents, we unconsciously repeat patterns of parenting that we experienced growing up. This workshop aims to make you aware of these patterns and gives you the tools to adapt and change to connect with your children on a deeper level. For more on this workshop, click here.
