Registation Options and Fees


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 an 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 childrens fee's are very low (and under 6 are free).   


  1. Full Week (Camping)  
  2. Full Week (Bunk Rooms)
  3. Per night (Camping)
  4. Per Night (Bunk Room)
  5. Late Registration (if space still available) Full week or Camping
  6. Kaiāwhina (Work exchange 1/2 price ticket) (Full week only)
  7. Scholarship (by application)

An Early Bird discount is available for the initial registration period (July - November). Registering early ensures you get a ticket, gets you a reduced ticket price, and the option of paying a deposit at the time of registering with the balance due by December 1st.  You are welcome to arrange a payment plan for monthly installments toward your full camp fee, starting from the time of your registration (contact Shelley if you wish to take up this option:
