Here's how it works:
Mimimum numbers will be required to get these trips off the ground - so encourage your keen friends to join too!
Journey participants will be from a variety of schools creating an opportunity for students to meet like minded students from throughout Canterbury. Some schools choose to have a staff member accompany their students - we are happy to work with individual schools to enable this to happen. Please check with the the Teacher in charge of D O E at your school.
Our costs are based on tramping journeys but we are open to ideas for cycling, kayak and horse trips too - extra costs (and equipment) may apply for these journeys.
