Our Bronze Qualifying Trip offers action-packed days filled with exploration, navigation challenges, and outdoor skills development. This adventure takes you through picturesque landscapes and remote locations, providing the perfect setting for personal growth and achievement.


NOTE: We are Rotorua based and run all of our trips from here. If you are coming from outside of Rotorua you will have to meet us at our meeting location on the day of the trip, we will supply transport from here and back to here.

Day 1:

Start with a quick gear check to ensure everyone has what they need, with a particular focus on essential safety items. Dive into hands-on navigation exercises in the great outdoors. Learn the art of estimating timeframes and apply them practically. Participate in route planning sessions, making collective decisions as a group to prepare for the next day’s adventure.

Day 2:

Pack up and tidy your campsite before engaging in more navigation exercises and an invigorating hike. Bid farewell to your fellow adventurers and head back home with unforgettable memories.


Our camp locations are scattered throughout the Central North Island, handpicked closer to the camp date to ensure the safest and most suitable tracks based on weather and track conditions. Detailed information, such as meeting places and times, will be emailed a week before the camp. Typically, we start from Rotorua, our home base for this charitable endeavor.

Popular hiking areas we explore include:

  • Tongariro National Park
  • Kaimai Forest Park
  • Whirinaki – Te Pua a Tane Conservation Park
