It pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for girls to ex­pe­ri­ence camp­ing in tents on a big scale. The camps are held ev­ery four years, the last one in 2008 in Christchurch.

The girls re­cently went on a preJam­boree camp for three nights at Tiro Tiro Whetu in Re­poroa. They learnt about clean­ing their teeth in a mug, go­ing with­out a TV or ra­dio, us­ing por­taloos, wash­ing their hair in a basin and us­ing a so­lar shower
