About Us

Metamorpho is built around the belief of discovering true authenticity

During a one-year process we navigate our students to take charge of their lives and to determine God’s purpose for their life.

We have a firm belief in equipping students to have outstanding metacognitive skills and teach them how to utilize their unique gifts to contribute meaningfully to society.

We wish to empower people between 18-23 years old to be the next generation of city changers and form part of a 23 year legacy.

Why Camps?

GENESIS STUDENT CAMP

This is our first camp and our first student experience. We take our students along on the Doxa Deo Student camp. During the camp our students get the chance to mingle and socialise with the students of the campus (Genesis). We take time to get to know one another, worship & spend time having a lot of fun. This camp sets the course of the year in terms of culture, Christian foundations and community.

We work with the basic understanding of teamwork as well as create reachable goals for your team.
