Cross-cultural immersion doesn’t have to occur only during school time. At OutBeyond we relish the opportunity to provide students with the ability to experience new cultures and countries as often as possible, all whilst developing core life and leadership skills. OutBeyond believes it is so important in the age of social media and smartphones, to empower youth in becoming global citizens. As such, we’ve identified an area in which we can provide a platform for students to do so, all whilst having an incredibly fun time - after all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Unfortunately, school holidays present a challenge for parents in continuing the incredible work schools and teachers do during the term in creating these platforms for their children. If you find yourself in this position, do you want your child to live life beyond the walls of the classroom and experience all that life has to offer? If so, OutBeyond has the solution!

 

This upcoming September school holidays, OutBeyond are offering two international experiences for children aged 11 – 17.  If you’re struggling to find suitable options for your children these holidays, why not send them along on one of our camps.  We’re visiting both China and New Zealand these holidays for two vastly different camps!  Help open their eyes to the world beyond our borders and allow them to develop lifelong memories, friends and international mindedness as we expose them to the incredibly rich history and cultural experiences that both China and New Zealand have to offer!

New Zealand South Island Discovery

The 10 day New Zealand South Island Discovery Holiday camp is OutBeyond's flagship NZ Program.

Campers will visit the world-renowned slopes of Queenstown skiing or snowboarding (you choose) The Remarkables for two days, exploring this country's beautiful scenic natural wonders with trained and qualified instructors, experiencing the rivers, lakes and oceans, as well as being immersed in the traditional culture and traditions of the Maori (Tangata Whenua).

It is the perfect opportunity to learn new skills and develop your campers leadership potential through hands on activities and workshops - all whilst they’re having the time of their lives! By that, we mean fun, serious fun!

My daughter really, really enjoyed the camp program. She loved the exploration theme of the camp and can't wait for the next one!

This program is supported and backed up by our Wellington Office (NZ Team), and 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 hopefully experience massive character growth!

Greater China Exploration Program

The OutBeyond 11 day Greater China Exploration Program is a journey through major cities and regional areas that span China's storied past and it's progressive future.

Participants will be immersed within the local community, learning from International students and developing their own global networks with friends they make along the way.

I really enjoyed the Duke of Ed camp. The leaders were very friendly and helpful. They let me take on leadership roles within the group, and I got to meet other International students.

World-class attractions like the Terracotta Warriors in Xian, the Great Wall North of Beijing and the Shaolin Temples of Henan are just some of the amazing stops on the program. Led by locals, our program participants are provided with unique opportunities and unforgettable life-changing experiences.

The OutBeyond Leadership Development program gives student participants a real opportunity to take on responsibility that develops independence through active ownership. Participants will enjoy leadership experiences that are student-led, outcomes focused and teacher-guided.
