Peterhouse Girls

Tatanga Camp Out 2019

Last weekend, over sixty families joined their daughters for an enchanting Camp Out in Peterhouse’s stunning Miombo-woodland game-reserve, Gosho Park. This conservation area, with its wide range of faunal residents, is wonderfully managed by Penny Raynor and her scouts, who ably facilitated hosting a remarkable 270 campers, (with a lot of help from Leon Greef and his Estates team).

There was quite a festive feel as families arrived to set up tents, many for their first ever camping adventure! Some groups then enjoyed a relaxing game drive before the Tatanga prefects presided over engaging and often hilarious games for the girls and their parents to play together. These energetic activities exposed the competitive nature of some and prompted many a smile and a laugh.

As braais were lit, the delicious smell of cooking emanated from around the camp, with even the girls whose parents could not make it cooking their own suppers on the fire.

All-in-all, it was a memorable and delightful evening and a wonderful opportunity for parents to get to know staff and to enjoy a relaxed soirée together with each other. Thank you to all who helped to make this event such a success.
