The CCUSA NEW ZEALAND AND AUSSIE STAFF

We've got great team spirit here at CCUSA with everyone having their own area of expertise and bringing different strengths to the different programs we have on offer. 

We have one full time office in Auckland and three full time offices in Australia, and many of our staff have been with the company or involved in the camping industry for over 15 years! This knowledge and experience can only benefit you. Our staff will provide you with the best customer care experience when you apply for a CCUSA adventure. 

When applying you’ll get to know all of us at some point, either over the phone, if you pop into the office, on social media or at an event, but in the meantime find out a little more below about the amazing CCUSA team.

While at camp she spent her days driving the tractor for wagon rides to cookouts, teaching tree climbing and taking the girls on short hikes.
