WHAT IS ADVENTURE WITH PURPOSE?

Adventure programmes are fun, but we take all the good times and the learning to a deeper level.

We look at the things that are truly meaningful in life. The things that create a life filled with purpose.

OUR FOCUS

 

Our Adventure With Purpose programmes focus on outcomes that bring that deeper learning and appreciation to being in the great outdoors.

The five outcomes are:

 

SELF AWARE

Develop a better sense of your inbuilt strengths: the qualities and skills that help you survive and thrive.

Identify your strengths, then build them up even stronger.

These strengths will support your physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing.

SOCIALLY AWARE

Develop people skills to strengthen your relationships at home, at work, wherever you go in life.

Develop a greater sense of manaakitanga, a Maori concept which encompasses kindness, empathy, respect, generosity and a desire to uplift other.

CULTURALLY AWARE

Develop a stronger understanding of your own cultural identity and build an appreciation for the cultural diversity and bicultural foundations of Aotearoa New Zealand.

ENVIRONMENTALLY AWARE

Develop a greater appreciation of the natural world. Understand our interdependence with the environment. Learn how we can all be kaitiaki (guardians) of our land.

MOTIVATED TO BE ACTIVE

Develop the motivation and the ability to continue being active outside of any programme.

Create your own adventures!

A QUICK NOTE …

 

If you are looking for an outdoor adventure programme to help you cope with the hard parts of life, like anxiety or depression or anger issues or unhealthy relationships, please head over to our Adventure Therapy page. 

Why? Because our Adventure With Purpose programmes are about encouraging personal growth, whereas our Adventure Therapy programmes focus on the ‘therapy’ aspect of being outdoors, using things like nature and team building exercises and group discussions and reflection to help you deal with those hard things.
