Summer Camp 2021/2022

Wairere Boulders Northland

Duration: Sunday 26th December 2021 - Monday 3rd January 2022

Covid 19 Planning: The camp in Northland will only go ahead dependent on government guidelines and restrictions. We are also exploring options within the Auckland region as an alternative.

Location: Tucked away in the upper reaches of the Hokianga Harbour, the Wairere Boulders is a private Nature Reserve with beautiful native bush, flowing stream and astounding volcanic boulders. ASC will have exclusive use of the spacious camping area, but the public will still have access to the Nature Reserve. The fenced campsite has a tidal stream on two sides. ASC will be able to hire kayaks, or bring your own. If you like biking, the popular Pou Herenga Tai Twin Coast Cycle Trail finishes close to the camp so bring your mountain bikes as well. There are plenty of places to explore in the area including tough and easy tramps, historic places of interest, the stunning Kauri forests, fishing and boating possibilities, swimming, kayaking and biking. Rawene and Opononi on the Hokianga Harbour and Kerikeri in the bay of Islands are both about a 40 minute drive away.
