Youth for Christ South Africa

Training Centre | Cyara

C.Y.A.R.A. (“Come Ye Away and Rest Awhile” Mark 6) campsite, also known as “The Training Centre” our campsite in Magaliesburg primarily serves:


  • as a campsite for “adventure outreach / evangelism” through camps. One of the camps worth noting is Youth Week, which has run for over fifty years and continues today. Thousands of young people have made decision to follow Christ at this camp.


  • as a Training Centre for year of your life teams like BuyelaiThemba and other teams and YfCSA staff. The centre also runs and hosts training camps for youth pastors / leaders / workers


  • as a camping and conference venue for schools, churches, NGOs and other organisations. This includes both use of facility for YfC and non-YfC facilitated camps / conferences. That is, people or organisations can hire the facilities and have their programs run in full or part by YfC or on their own.



The Training Centre / CYARA also runs, Ikageng (SeTswana for “Build Yourself“), a year of your life program (for 18 – 23 yrs). Ikageng uses adventure camps to reach young people. To find our more about Ikageng go here
