Who Are We?

About Czech and Slovak Club Tauranga

Czech and Slovak Club Tauranga is an incorporated non-profit organisation and a charity that has been founded primarily for the benefit of the Czech and Slovak community living in the area of Bay of Plenty and Waikato, New Zealand. Our society is inclusive and anybody can join, regardless of nationality, age, creed or cultural background.

Throughout the year we organise cultural and social events with the intention of bringing and keeping the community together.

If you’d like to contribute to the running of the club, you are welcome to join the executive committee.

Read more about club

We established the club in September 2012 with the primary objective of providing organised education for children of Czech or Slovak descent. Our main project since inception has been the Czech School.

Due to growing popularity and strong numbers of pre-school children we have added a Czech Playgroup in 2015 for children from birth to 5 years of age.

We are a sentimental bunch. So when we thought what we best loved when growing up as children, we thought of summer camps. In 2016, at our fourth camp, we’re happy to host children from all over New Zealand. Learn more >
