During this camp program, participants will undertake 2 key educational elements. The first being an easy but adventurous 3-day paddle and camping expedition (adventurous journey eligible) through a landscape of remote hills and valleys on the magical Whanganui Journey. Experiencing the scenic beauty, history and cultural significance of the winding Whanganui River in the south-west of the North Island.
The second educational element will be an exploration of the country, as students discover the most beautiful and scenic natural wonders of the North Island, experiencing the rivers, lakes and oceans, as well as being immersed in the culture and oral traditions of the Maori (Tangata Whenua).
Supported and backed by our Wellington Office (NZ Team), this program is designed with student wellbeing and welfare as the core focus. Through the outcomes-focused itinerary, students will learn more about themselves and one another, and experience massive character growth!
