THE OTAGO YOUTH ADVENTURE TRUST

A Special message to members of Rotary Clubs in New Zealand
Places are now available on our many trips, planned for the 2014 season. As in previous years, we try to notify every person in our address book, and many hundreds of you and your friends have already joined us in past years. Many return year after year to participate in other trips, hence the need for “new trips”. We are a Charities Commission Registered Club and all trips are run by unpaid volunteers. Leadership is “low key”, and most of our trips are “independent” walks, as distinct from the “up market” commercially guided tramps.
We have now completed our 27th season, and in that time almost 17,000 people, of all ages, have participated and shared in the fun of our low cost adventures.
YOU WILL NOTICE A CHANGE IN OUR BOOKING PROCEDURES THIS YEAR,
AS NOW ALL OUR BOOKINGS AND PAYMENTS WILL BE MADE “ON LINE”.
All trip and booking details can be found on our web site

On all our trips our bus will pick you up, and return you to Dunedin, (or other places, if on the bus route). Food and accommodation is provided while on the trip.
We are a legal tramping club, not a commercial operator, and are required (by law) to run our trips on a "cost recovery" basis only. Consequently our unpaid volunteer leaders and organisers can offer you a low-priced adventure. However, you do need to become a member of our Tramping Club ($50), in the season of your trip, and we do suggest a voluntary donation, so we can return some funds to the two very worthwhile Charitable Trusts that are the parent bodies of our Club.
For further information about any trip visit our web site, or contact the specific person listed on our web site.
Many of our trips fill up rapidly, and it is always a case of “first in-first served”.
