Registration Overview


For the various ticket options and prices, click on the “Fees & Payment” tab (under “Registration” above).

The summer camp experience is a key entry point for many families joining the Dances of Universal Peace community in New Zealand. In recognition of this, the Core Group offers a number of ways to support and develop Dance Camp Aotearoa as a viable and affordable option for families. The fee structure is one way, where ticket prices are set with families in mind – adults pay a little more while youth and children’s fees are very low (under 6 are free). It is delightful that in recent years camp has seen a steady increase in the number of  teens and children with several new families joining us.

We ask that you plan to stay for the full week. However for some that is not possible. We offer a Per-Night Ticket option (with a 2 night minimum).  This option will be made available after the 20th November and will be subject to availability, as we do have a limit on numbers at camp.  We encourage you to come to the full week.

    • Full Week Camping before 20th November  – $560
    • Full Week (Bunk room) – before 20th November $600
    • Full week (private or premium accommodation) – added cost
    • Per Night Ticket (Camping only and subject to availability after 20th November only) – minimum of two consecutive nights – $125
    • Full Week camping  after 20th November  $620
  •       Full Week (Bunk room) after 20th November  $650
