About the event

This is a weekly meetup for youth aged 15 to 19, to arrange getting out into our local bush and walks, and to try new active and outdoor activities together. 

We've got speakers lined up and some day trips and overnight walks in mind, so come along and meet some new friends and share your experience or learn new things!

5 April - Jase Blair

10 May - Hernan will talk about the use of a PLB, rescue stories from the helicopter and outdoors first aid.

17 May - Mitch will zoom in. Mitch is an avid whitewater kayaker and all-around adventure enthusiast. After finishing high school in Australia, Mitch moved to New Zealand to study the ‘world renowned’ outdoor programme at Tai Poutini Polytechnic (Greymouth). It was here where he fine tuned his skills and accumulated qualifications in several pursuits including whitewater kayaking, rafting, mountaineering and rock climbing.   

Since finishing his diploma, Mitch’s outdoor skills have taken him to some of the best whitewater destinations around the world, including Nepal, Norway, Tasmania, and of course New Zealand. He’s currently planning expeditions to Africa and South America at the end of the year. 

On top of that, Mitch is hoping to study medicine next year. His dream is to eventually link the outdoors and medicine together to work as a doctor in some of the world’s wild places.  Mitch is an advocate for being safe in the outdoors and loves giving back to the community to help foster the next generation of adventurers. 

8/9 June - Walk and overnight trip to Ces Clark Hut.

No membership fees. Kai, transport, hut fees, activity fees provided. Register to get updates about activities and meetup plans!
