Go Wild (in Nature!)

The Go Wild programme is designed for our younger adventurers and involves 5 days of action, nature immersion and outdoor exploration.

Whilst exploring, Go Wild adventurers will go on a nature connection journey that will not only build their confidence it will nurture a passion for environmental protection.  The programme includes active, playful and ‘wild’ adventures that establish a connection to nature that tamariki can keep building on for a lifetime. 

Whilst being immersed in nature our young adventurers will explore how they can not only restore nature, but also be restored by nature.

The Go Wild in Nature holiday programme will include a variety of mini outdoor adventures depending on the time of year. These may include:

  • An introduction to bush skills
  • Navigation skills
  • Cooking in the outdoors
  • A range of adventurous outdoor activities
  • Fun Whenua Iti Outdoor (WIO) challenges & games

The 5 day programme of adventure focuses on different nature elements including; ngahere (forest), takutai (coast), whenua (land), and awa (river), along the way tamariki will explore how as individuals we can best look after these taonga (treasures).  The Go Wild programme activities vary depending on the time of year.

Each Go Wild adventurer will leave with their minds connected to nature, with happy hearts, new friendships and tired edgesCheck out our latest adventures on Facebook and Instagram.
