2022 Junior Tramping Camp

This camp is full!

When? Monday the 3rd of October 2022 – Thursday 6th of October 2022

Where?  We will be tramping the stunning Hollyford track

Who?  Boys and Girls in school years 7 – 10

Cost? $280 pp (CYC Sponsorship is available)

The Hollyford Track

We are heading into northern Fiordland National Park to tramp part of the Hollyford Track through to the stunning Lake Alabaster.
The track takes us along floor of an ancient glacial valley that once stretched from the Southern Alps all the way to the Tasman sea.
The track itself travels along a beautiful formed track and as it follows the valley floor there are no major mountains to climb – in
fact the highest point on the track is 180 metres above sea level (Little Homer Saddle) . The track takes us right into the midst of
the Southern Alps and snow capped peaks without really gaining much altitude above sea level.
We will be staying in public DOC huts (and tenting if there is a lack of space in the huts), this means there maybe members of the
public sharing the spaces we are using.

Essentials you need to know before

These are essentials to know before you enrol in this tramping camp:

  • You will need good fitness and be able to walk at least 10km each day on the flat. You can start building fitness now by going for increasingly long walks each week.
  • You will need to carry all your own gear and food in a tramping pack. We will not carry your food, clothes or even your hairbrush for you. As an group tramping camp we will also be carrying shared equipment which you will need to carry your share of.
  • 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”) – ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL IT IS RATED TO -10oC or greater 
    • Waterproof rain jacket (not a “nylon parka”)
    • Good thermal layers (base, mid and top)
    • Waterproof dry bags or pack liner
  •  Our leadership consists of leaders with a combined total of over 100 years tramping experience in the wilderness.

The tramping camp down the Hollyford [in 2019] was one of the best CYC camps I've ever been on.

It was my first tramp and I had no idea what I was doing but that tramping trip down the South Coast was one of my best memories as a teenager. Now I'm in my twenties I'm still doing lots of tramping

2019 Junior Tramping Camp

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
