Less Privileged Camps
Make a difference in a young person's life
Hobbiton still remains true to its core mission that was initiated more than 75 years ago and that is to to give less privileged children a chance to experience an outdoor adventure!
Hobbiton is registered with the Department of Social Development as a Non Profit Organisation and we can only continue with our work by having the financial assistance of various corporate and private donations. The money generated from commercial bookings assists with our running costs, although for our Less Privileged Camps we need further assistance.
The cost of one of these camps at present is R 83 000 for seven days for 150 people. A few of these camps are held each year during the school holidays.
