TWO WEEK OUTDOOR CAMP + SOUTH ISLAND TOUR


Start your trip with outdoor education in the mountains of the North Island then head South to take in the breathtaking scenes New Zealand is famous for.

New Zealand outdoor education camp

Our outdoor education camps are built for those who want to challenge themselves and push themselves to achieve more. Situated in the central North Island there are few places on earth that offer the landscape, safety and accessibility of the area. A must for go-getters and adventurers alike. Our two-week camp also includes our action-packed week long tour of the stunning South Island.

Daily routine

Each day you can expect to be woken up at 6.30am to cook breakfast and prepare lunch for later in the day before leaving the camp by 9am. You can expect to be out in the wilderness with your instructors taking part in a range of activities from 9am to 5pm each day. As a member of a group of 10 students you will be accompanied by a professional outdoor guide and a translator where necessary. Dinner is usually served around 6pm after which there might be an evening activity at around 8pm.

Activities

Your activities will consist of team building exercises, hiking, high ropes, overnight camping and rock climbing amongst others. All of these activities are designed to improve self-confidence, leadership and teamwork skills. More information on the type of activities possibly included in your camp can be found in the activities section.

South Island tour

At the end of your 4-night stay at our camp, you’ll begin your South Island tour.

This begins with a night in Rotorua, a two-hour drive from your camp. The next morning you’ll check out the fury animals at the Agrodome before boarding a plane bound for Christchurch, the largest city in the South Island. You’ll spend two nights in Christchurch during which you’ll enjoy a city tour, the beautiful seaside town of Sumner, the Port Hills and learn the traumatic recent history with the 2011 earthquake which claimed 185 lives. After two nights in the garden city, it’s a three hour drive to Mt. Cook, NZ’s tallest mountain. Mt. Cook is surrounded by beautiful walks that will take you up to the glacier terminal lake filled with icebergs and stunning blue glacial water. The following day we’ll carry on towards Queenstown, the adventure capital of New Zealand and the world. Upon arrival in Queenstown, we will show you the local sights and restaurants (of which there are many). The next day we’ll take you to Milford Sound, often called ‘The eighth wonder of the world’. Milford Sound is a full day trip including boat cruise through the sound. The next morning, you’ll be filled with adrenaline as you whip through canyons in a jet boat. That afternoon, for those who dare, you can choose to do a bungy or skydive at your own cost. After you’ve hopefully recovered from the adrenaline injection, it’s time to fly back to Auckland for your return flight to home.

Who’s it for?

Our two week camps are built for young adults who are after a deeper connection with themselves and the environment. You’ll still get the outdoor education aspect but this camp has a greater emphasis on exploring our beautiful country. This camp is also slightly less controlled than the others in that it gives you more free time to see and do things as you please with who you want rather than what we tell you to do.
