Equipment can be provided please let us know on your registration if you would like this option


Meet 9am on Tuesday 12th July 2022 at the Adventure Hub Firmin Lodge, Waterhouse Street, Kawerau. The Lodge will be our base for the duration of the camp.

The camp will finish on Thursday 14th July 2022 at about 4.30pm.


The camp will cost $265 per paddler incl GST for CSBOP Club members and $295 incl GST for non CSBOP Club members which will include 24 hour care, food and coaching. 

Transport to and from Tauranga will be available in the club van on a first come first served basis at a cost of $17 return.

We invite offers from keen parents to help, if you are the superstar who takes on the food management then you get to stay for free! Otherwise if a parent wants to stay it is $120 including food.

IMPORTANT: We do please require a person (or 2 depending on size of camp) to be a food co-ordinator and cook for this camp if there are any willing parents out there??

We will be asking some parents to provide pre cooked meals for which they will be reimbursed  - so the main meal cooking is largely done.  So this will only need to heat and attend to side dishes, breakfasts, snacks and desserts. 

Each participant will be asked to bring some home baking and fruit


Numbers will be strictly limited to 27 so book early if you want to be in!  

Registration will be required by 5 pm Sunday 3rd July 2022.  

It is preferred that paddlers attend for the whole of the camp but if you let us know if you can't stay for the whole camp and we can make try and make arrangements.
