Step up to the challenge
Are you ready to go further to shelter families around the world following disaster?
Through our Trek 4 Shelter campaign, our goal is to raise $250,000 across five, once-in-a-lifetime adventures.
This amount is enough to provide 1,000 families with essential shelter aid, including our ShelterKits, solar lights, water filters and mosquito nets — life-changing, life-saving aid that will help disaster-affected communities to begin the slow process of recovery.
We’re asking you to help us continue our efforts by joining one of our Trek 4 Shelter adventures today!
When you sign up, you’ll join a team of other passionate ShelterBox supporters who will trek with you and we’ll give you all the guidance you’ll need to start your fundraising journey.
Yosemite National Park, USA – August 2023
Journey into the rugged, dramatic and ancient natural world of Yosemite Valley in California, as you trek one of the world’s best preserved wonders and help fund ShelterBox Australia to keep their vision alive – to live in a world where no one has to go without shelter after disaster.
Yosemite in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, famed for its giant, ancient sequoia trees and its towering Granite cliffs, is an incredible destination. Named after the Indian word “uzumate,” which meant grizzly bear, the name could now also apply to the vivid orange lichen that covers the granite boulders dotted along the bay.
The funds raised on this adventure will enable ShelterBox Australia to reach more people in need, and ensure every person is able to receive the life-saving equipment when there is nothing left but the clothes on their back.
Tarkine, Tasmania – October 2023
Discover the extraordinary natural beauty of the Tarkine, Tasmania’s diverse and relatively untouched wild north-west.
Over five unforgettable days, alongside other like-minded supporters, you will explore the rugged coastline, scale majestic mountaintops, cruise meandering rivers and marvel at Australia’s largest temperate rainforest.
The best thing about this incredible adventure to this remote and ancient land is that you’ll raise funds for ShelterBox Australia to help them provide emergency shelter and equipment to those made homeless by war and natural disasters.
Kokoda Track, Papua New Guinea – April 2024
Regarded as one of the world’s greatest treks, the Kokoda Track links the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea, across 96 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain and tropical rainforest.
