The Central Plateau Scooter Challenge is an endurance ride from Wanganui to Taupo for Camp Quality

Manawatu / Whanganui

The Central Plateau Scooter Challenge is an endurance ride from Wanganui to Taupo, crossing the summit of the Rangipo Desert (1074m), a journey of over 270kms to raise funds for

?Camp Quality NZ.

Entry is $50 to ride in the Central Plateau Scooter Challenge, this gives you a Challenge t-shirt and a riders pack. You must also fundraise a minimum of $200 for Camp Quality.


The Challenge is not a race – it’s an awareness-raising and fundraising event for the children with cancer and their families. By raising funds for Camp Quality we are helping them continue their support of these children, ensuring they and their families live every quality moment.

CP Scooter Challenge's involvement (page creator)

Camp Quality was established in Australia in 1983 by an English immigrant, Vera Entwistle. Two years later Vera helped launch Camp Quality in New Zealand. A Sydney doctor gave Vera the idea for the name when he told her:

“No one can do anything about the quantity of anyone’s life, but all of us can do something about the quality”

From this Camp Quality was born and has now spread to other countries. Today Camp Quality remains committed to making a positive difference to children (aged 5-16 years) living with cancer.

​The first New Zealand camp was held in West Auckland in January 1985 and attracted 22 children from throughout the country. Since then Camp Quality NZ has grown to provide annual summer camps and year-round support at NO COST to help children and their families overcome the challenges of living with cancer.

Camp Quality is about letting kids be kids, while continuing with their treatments and giving the parents a well deserved break, away from the worry for a short while.
