Spring is now here and it is time to shake the moths out of the camping gear ready for the Summer Camp.
The Trips and Tramps committee have been out searching the country side for a suitable
site and this year we have chosen an area which is 17 Km (16 mins) from Paeroa in the Maratoto Valley.
It has several flat paddocks which are ideal for camping and a stream with a
sunny pool across the road. There are many trips and tramps in the immediate area and
further afield. For cyclists, the Hauraki Rail Trail is close by in the Karangahake Gorge. In
this same area there are many spectacular walks for all abilities. For the very adventurous
there is a challenging scale to the top of Maratoto Peak. Paeroa and the surrounding towns
have many cafes and restaurants and Paeroa boasts 14 antique shops. The nearest ice
creams and cafe are at Hikutaia 5 km away.
This year we have to use Portaloos instead of our faithful long drops.
Bookings will open mid – November. Details in Alpinesport
