MCSA Paarl-Wellington is excited to invite you to Spring Camp 2020 hosted in the Hawequas (meaning “Man in the Mountain”) mountains during the long weekend of 23-27 September. 

Base camp will be set up at the Hawequas Scouts Adventure Centre. The Paarl/Wellington area is known for its heritage and various cultural walks are planned. Various family-friendly hikes (see below) will start from the Adventure Centre and for the more adventurous we’ll link up with other trails.

Every evening we will get together for a bring and braai and share the experiences of the day, followed by a briefing on the following day’s hikes. On the last evening we will conclude with a spit braai to celebrate the epic adventures of Spring Camp.

Day visitors have access to facilities during the day and are welcome to join for the braai and kuier in the evening..

The club uses a grading system (given in brackets after the hike name) to make it easier for club members to communicate the difficultly of an outing. You can check out our Meets Grading page for details on how to use the grading system, or alternatively you can contact the meet leader directly if you are unsure of the difficulty of a meet.
