Give Adventure Specialties a home!

What Is this fundraiser about?

For the first time in our 37-year history, we have purchased a building to use as a home base! It gives us stability and a financial asset. It is also a place we can call home, make our own, share with other community groups, and dream up epic, life-changing adventures.

We are pumped!!!

But we need your help to kit out the building so that it is able to be used and shared.

 We have plans for offices, areas for meeting and hanging out, storage areas for outdoor equipment, a kitchen and laundry, and more.

    Can You Help Us?

    Our goal is to raise $100,000 as soon as possible, so we can turn this building into our home base.

    Could you donate $10? Or $100? Or even $1000?

    Please check out the donation options below.

    Who Are We?

    Adventure Specialties Trust was founded in 1984. We use outdoor adventure to grow great communities and build Everyday Heroes. 

    From kayaking to rock climbing to mountain biking to abseiling, Adventure Specialties Trust uses outdoor adventure to create positive change in people’s lives.

    It is fun. But it is so much more than that.

    Our programs have incredibly powerful, life-changing outcomes. Like improved wellbeing, increased social skills, strengthened character, increased participation in nature and manaakitanga (kindness, empathy, respect, generosity and a desire to uplift other).

    Every year, we work with over 6000 youth in Christchurch and Auckland. These include youth leadership groups, teens struggling inside the school system, youth offenders, people with disabilities, school camps, social services organisations like Oranga Tamariki, young mums and parents, plus a variety of schools and community groups.

    Here’s a snapshot of what we get up to …
