We’re serious about Health & Safety

20161031_1815390Camp Raukawa runs a comprehensive Risk and Safety Management Programme. All adventurous activity contains an element of risk, both physical and mental.  Camp Raukawa has endeavoured to recognise and mitigate risks for each activity. Each activity at Camp Raukawa has a Standard Operating Procedure and is managed through our YMCA Code of Practice for the Outdoors which takes into account applicable industry standards. You will be actively encouraged to participate in this process and will be fully briefed during the booking of your camp of your obligations.
