Meet your presenter

Jason Bosman

I found my passion for developing people in high school after being chosen to be a mentor on various camps and events. I love seeing the growth in young people and knowing I've made a long lasting impact in their lives. I love the outdoors and go for hikes whenever the opportunity presents itself. I am here to share my knowledge and experiences with you so that you can love hiking and camping as much as I do!

Red Blazer Information

The Hiking and Camping academy is compulsory in Grade 8 or Grade 9 for anyone who wishes to complete the Red Blazer Program.

This academy aims to give you the skills and knowledge to make all your events easier and a lot more FUN!

We felt this academy was needed as many learners have little or no hiking and camping experience. Our goal was to equip you with every skill and bit of knowledge you need to make events like Desert Walk easier especially Grade 12 Drakensberg Desert Walk.
