Stevie- Guest assistance




The mountains shall bring peace to the people. (Ps. 72:3)

  • Landela Christian Camp is run on Christian principles and as such we endeavor to assist groups by keeping our rates as low as possible, at the same time attempting to cover the daily running cost of the camp site.

    In order to do this we have had to introduce changes to the running of the camp site. This is due to last minute cancellations, deposits not being paid, groups making bookings tying up dates and then not responding to requests to confirm or cancel bookings. Due to this fact we have been unable to assist many groups, or fill the booking dates; resulting in a loss of income; as we could not finalize bookings.

    Please note the following points for all future bookings:

  • Reservations will be held for a maximum of two weeks (fourteen days), during which time the deposit must be paid. The reservation will automatically be cancelled and a notification sent should the deposit not be paid during that time.

  • Deposits have been increased to R1500 per reservation plus the damages deposit of R300 for groups up to 30 or R500 for groups above 30. Damages deposit to be included with accommodation deposit.

  • We require a R300 damages deposit per reservation (R500 for group numbers above 30), which is refundable once the house is checked and there are no damages. Any breakages will be deducted from this amount and the balance refunded.

  • N.B. Please note an additional cleaning charge of R150 minimum will be applied if groups allow the children to smear toothpaste and soap all over our walls, mattresses, floors, etc. For those who pray before their beds using oil on their hands, please assist us by not placing your hands directly on to our sheets, etc. as we cannot get the oil out and then they seem dirty.

  • The reservation office must be advised at least two weeks in advance of arrival of the numbers attending. Groups will be invoiced on this information; unless the number increases; after which the invoice will be adjusted accordingly.

  • Our minimum booking requirement has been increased to 25 guests per weekend and 50 guests if you are only staying over one night (i.e. 25 per day – minimum 2 nights – 50 per day – 1 night), therefore the minimum cost per weekend will be R4,500.00 per weekend for 2015, irrespective of numbers below 25 for two nights or 50 for 1 night.

  • Requests regarding amendments to deposit payments, extended time, etc. will be assessed on an individual basis upon request.

  • Deposit refunds will only be done in the event of reservations being cancelled at least three months prior to dates booked. Group bookings are done months in advance and we are unable to fill these dates at shorter notice.

We regret any inconvenience these changes are causing our regular clients and wish to thank you for your support.
