Are you ready for adventure?! This book is the ultimate tramping journal for kids and the young at heart!

This journal contains all you need to know to head out on your first overnight tramp, as well as space to record your adventure and how it went! 

While this journal has been designed especially for 5 - 12 year olds, older kids and the young at heart will also love filling it in and keeping a record of their adventures. Younger kids will love it too, they'll just need help with the writing. A great way to remember those great trips!


Book contains: 

  • Specific information, tips, and tricks for 24 of the South Island's most kid-friendly huts
  • Packing lists for your tramp
  • List of day tramps in each region 
  • Meal ideas
  • Scavenger hunt
  • Extra journaling pages for 8 more huts
  • List of other kid-approved huts to visit
  • Tree identification images
  • South Island Bird identification images
  • Games to play while walking
  • Drawings for colouring in
  • Things to do at the hut
  • Icebreaker questions to ask others at the hut
  • Links to extra resources

And oh so much more!

At A5 size, it's the perfect size to fit into your tramping bag. 

Don't want to colour-in? We also have sticker sheets with all the huts in full colour too! Perfect to pop over the colour-in image, or just stick anywhere you'd like!


And while designed for the kids, they'll also give parents the confidence to head out tramping even if they've never been on a trip before with a full family packlist and FAQs.
