The History of Wortelgat

In his search for a campsite for the Students Christian Association in the Western Cape (now SCO) George Fehrsen found the Wortelgat property. Realising it to be beyond the reach of students, he with friends set about forming the See - Eike Trust (Pty) Ltd to take ownership of the Wortelgat and mountain properties, with the vision to establish a Christian camp and conference centre, where shareholders gave this their generous support and are good stewards of the natural beauty. Following the approval of subdivision of the Wortelgat property to enable shareholder and camp site ownership, the See - Eike Home Owners Association was formed to manage all the activities of the home owners and the remainder of the property.

The Wortelgat Outreach Trust formed in 1997 to enable management focus on the implementation of the vision, to take ownership of the properties used for the camping activities and also to benefit from the tax provisions for Non Profit Organisations.

The first fulltime staff were appointed simultaneously and building development accelerated. Progressively a wide range of equipment was added and the introduction of well-trained fulltime programme facilitators pioneered.


To establish an interdenominational Christian facility where young and old from all sectors of the community will be encouraged to commit their lives to Jesus as their personal saviour and where they will be challenged to grow in their faith and service to Christ

To assist people to get to know and understand one another through shared experiences under Christian leadership
To be good stewards of God's creation through the restoration and maintenance of the natural beauty of Wortelgat

Purpose Statement

As stewards of God’s creation we will reflect His character through the management of our facilities and offering of experiences that are fun-filled and challenging so that hearts are joyfully turned to Jesus for transformation and growth in faith and service.

Declaration of Faith

The Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct; triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His substitutionary atonement for sin, His bodily resurrection, and His personal, visible return to the earth to reign in righteousness and glory; The Person of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration and sanctification; Who indwells every believer equipping them with gifts for service and witness. The necessity of new birth, salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ; the church of Christ who is head, called to be God's redeemed people.
