The Christchurch Tramping Club’s Youth Programme aims to introduce high-school students over 15 years of age to tramping. The club has partnered with schools to offer this opportunity. Experienced club members will lead easy tramps to bookable huts for up to eight students with an adult to student ratio of one to four. The programme is entirely volunteer-led and has the goal of providing students with an enjoyable introduction to the outdoors. The programme is free of charge as we have a grant from the Rata Foundation. We also have specialised clothing (e.g. waterproof coats) and equipment (e.g. packs and sleeping bags) to loan to students at no cost.
