Happy Acres, probably the most loved camp in South Africa, is a child-centred field centre with over 70 years’ experience in providing a prepared environment that enables children to learn more about themselves, the environment and their peers. Happy Acres provides an environment where children can leave their backgrounds, privileged or not, behind and enter a secure neutral world as equals with children from a wide range of backgrounds. It’s a place where youngsters are kept busy doing positive things, while being encouraged to explore many different fun-filled opportunities.
