Instructor Led Activities

The following activities require a qualified instructor, as they require guidance.

As some of the more challenging outdoor activities must be led by Qualified Instructors, we are affiliated with the team at Youthtown Outdoors, who can run these for you. They also have a range of their own activities available.

Youthtown is a nationally operated, not-for-profit organisation offering a whole ‘township’ of developmental activity in key communities across New Zealand for 5-18 year olds.

Youthtown’s Outdoor Mark accreditation means we can deliver our own outdoor programs and other organisations are happy to endorse us to deliver specialist programmes on their behalf.

Alternatively, Youthtown forms a ‘conduit’ or gateway to other organisations in the community who meet New Zealand’s Health and Safety regulations. On these occasions, our staff remain with the children, overseeing the activity, implementing The Youthtown Way.

Youthtown Outdoors are also happy to help plan and run all of the activities for your camp if you would prefer.
