Covid Policy

The Executive have considered the spread of Covid-19 and actions being taken by the Government to limit exposure and severity of cases. With the health and safety of our membership in mind, the Executive has agreed to implement the following action in line with the Covid-19 Protection Framework (Traffic Lights) which comes into effect on 3 December 2021.

Any participants on any PTC Tramp, Club Night or official Club activity must hold a current Vaccine Pass.

The above requirement not only protects members’ health and safety, it also means that no matter where we are situated on the traffic light system, Club activities will not be restricted.

This requirement will remain in effect until Government restrictions are removed.

PTC is one of Christchurch's largest tramping clubs.

Based in Christchurch, New Zealand, the Peninsula Tramping Club is a large friendly club offering a wide range of trips, mostly in the central part of the South Island. See the trip list to see where we are going in the next month, or trip reports to see where we have been in the past.

The club consists of people of all ages who tramp for recreation.

We organise regular trips to cater for people of different levels of fitness and tramping experience. Our trips range from easy to hard, and may be anything from day trips to long weekends to a week or more.

We also hold a monthly club meeting, and a variety of social events.

CLUB NIGHTS are held on the second Tuesday of each month in the Baptist Church Hall at 286 Oxford Terrace. This is located on the corner of Madras Street and Oxford Terrace, (see map) starting promptly at 7.45 pm. Doors open 7.30.
