You’re invited to Journey 2022 – A West Coast Adventure!

January 9, 2022 - January 13, 2022


This Discovery event is an opportunity for Guides and Rangers to still experience an amazing event in lieu of Jamboree being cancelled.

As a part of this week, you will be travelling from Hokitika after the first night where we will set up camp at Franz Josef. From here, we will have an action-packed week where you will be walking into both Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier. There will also be other walks to be done as well as exploring some of the wonderful towns and attractions along the way. You will be required to be reasonably fit and able to walk a few hours each day. Alongside this, there will also be some fun activities to complete at the campsite in the downtime. You will be camping in tents and helping with preparing your own meals. As per the original Ranger adventures, there will be a requirement to bring a lightweight tent and/or a gas cooker and billy.

Please note: We have been advised by the providers who are helping to make this event possible that a condition of participation is for those aged 12+ to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19. In accepting this invite you are confirming that you can provide evidence of vaccination

  • Who is invited to attend? 

All Guides and Rangers who were originally attending Jamboree are invited to attend first. If there are further places available then these will be offered to additional Guides and Rangers. There are limited places and we can’t guarantee your spot so we do recommend registering as soon as possible.

  • What does the fee cover? 

The fee covers all accommodation, food and activity costs for the five days that your Ranger is in attendance. It also covers travel during the week, but not on the first and last days into Hokitika.

  • Is travel to and from Hokitika arranged for me? 

No, all travel to and from Hokitika prior to and at the end of the camp is to be arranged and paid for yourself. We can put parents in touch with one another to arrange to carpool if necessary. If your daughter is flying into Hokitika Airport then we can arrange for a leader to pick her up and drop her back at the end. Please contact us before booking flights to liaise around timings.

  • What happens if I don’t pay the full fee by 30 November? 

You will be removed from the event and your place offered to someone on the waitlist.

  • Will this be open to girls from other areas of the country?

 No, we will only be offering these Jamboree Discoveries to local girls in order to minimize any possible disruption due to Covid-19 border restrictions. Rangers from other areas of the country will be offered other opportunities.
