Find out the fun and inspiring activities.

Everyone can register for the activities. There will be no additional fees for this.

On the 1ste of May, a Google Form will be shared on all our channels. In this form, you will get the opportunity to make a selection of activities you would like to attend. To guarantee every visitor gets a spot at an activity, you can only select 2 activities. We will also ask you to select a ‘reserve’ activity. Keep in mind, full is full! However, we will do our utmost best to place everyone in their chosen selections. That being said, there will be a reserve list for each activity. If you want to qualify for the reserve lists, then please leave your telephone number behind. We will notify you once there is a spot available.


We’re happy to announce that registration for the various activities has been opened!
