Fun, safe, educational and adventurous outdoor experiences for Years 5 to 13
We are passionate about giving every kiwi kid the opportunity to experience the great outdoors and can support your school in delivering your EOTC and NCEA outdoor education goals.
Whether it’s facilitating raft building for a fun day outdoors, incorporating high ropes and orienteering into school camps or taking high school students on a whitewater kayaking adventure, we work in partnership with your school to plan and run activities that fit with your school’s particular values.
Secondary school programmes
Our staff are qualified to provide the technical tuition and adventure experiences to support your NCEA Physical Education curriculum Levels 1 to 3.
We also offer a range of specialised programmes that are designed to focus on and foster leadership and youth development.
We offer activities and programmes designed to enhance school camps and day trips that can foster leadership skills and personal growth. We work with your school to plan and run activities which correspond to your school values. A focus on perseverance, for example, could see children participating in a high ropes course and learning not to give up the first time, that it’s not about getting to the top but setting personal goals and giving it a go.
If your school is offering the William Pike challenge programme, we can partner with you to provide adventure challenge days.
We design adventurous programmes that are fun, safe and that will holistically develop your students. Together we can create experiences that enhance your young people’s resilience, spunk and the confidence to be their best selves.
Let us help plan your next personal development training event. We can train and assess your staff to nationally recognised Outdoor Leader Awards.
