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 25 year legacy.

Why Camps?


This is our first camp and our first student experience. We introduce our students to the life-changing culture of Metamorpho. During this experience we guide our students to start their journey of Discovering Their True Authenticity.
