Advisory: Opening date for Camp Paekākāriki interpretation site POSTPONED until further notice.  


The Kapiti US Marines Trust (KUSMT) advises that due to a lengthy spell of bad weather and the impact of Covid on some of our contractors, we have decided to delay the opening of the Camp Paekākāriki Interpretation Site until further notice. While this is disappointing, we believe we need to make this decision now and focus on a firm date following the project’s completion. Our grateful thanks for the persistent efforts of our construction team and the understanding and support of all stakeholders.
