Are you interested in experiencing three different day tramps over three days? Are you up for a challenge, meeting new people and having fun? Then the North Island Regional Tramp may be for you.

What is the North Island Regional Tramp?

This tramp is for clients who are up for a challenge or are working towards taking part in Outward Bound in the future. This will be held in Rotorua and will be experiencing three different tramps. This will include The Redwoods – Whakarewarewa Forest, Lake Tarawera and Rainbow Mountain – Maungakakaramea, meaning ‘mountain of coloured earth’. You will have the opportunity to create friendships, try something new, travel through beautiful nature surroundings and better yet challenge yourself.

Who can attend?

This tramp is for Blind Foundation clients aged 18 upwards who must be physically capable of walking up to 5 hours a day with a backpack. It is a priority that you are self-reliant with personal care and have good orientation and mobility. Please also be aware that you may be asked to help prepare meals in a team environment. This tramp is organized and led by Blind Foundations recreation staff.

What is the cost?

We ask for a contribution of $200 per person. This will go towards accommodation, meals and snacks for all days, water taxi to trail, activities, equipment, and transport during the tramp. All other expenses including incidental cost, extra accommodation, meals and travel from your home to and from Auckland will be at your own expense. Please contact Latesha Sharp for more information regarding transport as pick up and drop of locations are yet to be confirmed.
