About this Camp

Here at CYC we love all things equine and we want to share this love with you – develop riding skills, do cool activities on your horses and make new friends.

This Pony Camp will teach the basics of horse care and horseback riding through fun activities based around our theme of the Wild West.

Camp Features

Daily activities will include: safety around horses, grooming, tacking, leading horses, and horseback riding. The girls will learn respect and responsibility through hands on care while learning about all aspects of horses.

Each camper is assigned their own horse to ride and care for the entire week. This “ownership” opportunity makes the riding experience more rewarding and introduces campers to the responsibilities and joys of having their own horse.

  • This very popular camp is limited to 18 spaces
  • Our horse and pony camps are enrolled on the basis of riding ability (rather than first enrolled first in).

  • $220 (includes transport to and from location and main meals)

About this tramp

This new tramping camp in 2019 is for those keen on giving real tramping a try in the New Zealand backcountry.

We will be casually tramping on average 9km each day to DOC huts along a reasonably good condition track down the Lower Hollyford river valley. This brief-taking track takes in views of Mt Tutoko (Fiordland's highest mountain), Hidden Falls (a stunning hidden waterfall) and Lake Albaster (a back-country gem of a lake only accessible by foot).

As beginner tramping you will need to have reasonable level of fitness (so start training now) and will need to carry all your own food and gear with you as you tramp.

Tramping Camp Features

Views of Mt Tutoko

Mt Tutoko is Fiordland's highest mountain and raises straight out of the Hollyford valley above Hidden Falls hut.

Fun and Games

With no no power or cellphone coverage, we have plenty of time to play cool games like "The Most Awesome Game in the World" and make our own fun in the wilderness.

Good Food

Tramping is all about walking, good company and eating food. Lots of snacks to build up your energy for tramping

  • There are some essential gear requirements for tramping. These include the following non-negotiable items to keep you warm and safe in the wilderness:
    • Good boots with ankle support
    • Warm Sleeping Bag (not a “cheap warehouse one”)
    • Waterproof rain jacket (not a “nylon parka”)
    • Waterproof dry bags or pack liner

  •  Our leadership consists of leaders with a combined total of over 100 years tramping experience in the wilderness.
