Mountain Safety Courses

Every year, usually in March, the Lions Clubs of Whakatane and Taneatua sponsor a Mountain Safety course at the Lions Hut.  The instruction is given by instructors from the EBOP Branch of NZ Mountain Safety Council in the following disciplines:  Basic Bushcraft (setting up camp, fire safety, clothing and equipment), navigation (map and compass reading), firearms, outdoor first aid, and river-crossing.  These are weekend courses, starting on Friday night and ending on Sunday afternoon.  Members from the 2 Lions Clubs do the catering and organisation of the courses.

Information on these courses can be obtained from
