Glencairn Rotary Camp is a special place where Nature is teacher, the shining light in our world. Koos Burger, warden of this special outdoor venue for kids, is a walking encyclopaedia who ignites our passion for all things living.
Ask Koos about the wild flowers, the exotic trees, the runaway fires and the stream that runs through the property – he can tell you plenty of stories.

Caring for the River and all Biodiversity
Koos is the epitome of a true environmentalist. He loves Nature and wants to help save our Earth. He is a fountain of knowledge as he weaves his wisdom into stories of nature, history, geography and science. This makes him a born educator who has an innate connection with children of all ages. We call him Uncle Koos. He has a passion to help clean up the catchment which is negatively affected by sewage pollution, litter and alien invasive vegetation.
Earth Kids filmed their discoveries with Koos, a true teacher. Check out their films here.
