YMCA Kiwi Adventure


Youth Programmes

The very reason the Trust exists is that we believe that the medium of challenge and adventure changes people for the better.  As an organisation we are not the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff, but are the experience that can influence young people not to drive off the cliff. We believe that what we do is about inside change outside and we have many stories of how young people have changed their life path.

We are experienced at working with youth at risk and can easily pitch any of our programmes at challenging individuals to turn the challenge back positively to help them learn and grow.  

We have a great range of programmes to add value to what you do

Custom Made

Corporate, management teams, councils, sports teams, in fact any group interested in team development should consider doing one of our courses. We can provide custom built programmes that range from straightforward team building exercises through to challenges that will expose and build on weaknesses, identify and enhance strengths and reveal leadership skills.

These challenges are specifically designed to act as metaphors for workplace situations allowing targeted feedback and transferable lessons.

Ahuriri Adventure Rogaine

The Ahuriri Rogaine is a challenge based on points. The group is split up into teams and each team is given a map and points sheet. The map has a whole lot of locations marked on it and the point's sheet tells the team how many points are up for grabs at that location. At each location is either an answer to a question or a team challenge to complete. The team challenges are worth more points than the questions and the locations further away from the start are worth more points than the locations closer. It is up to each team to plot their course and gain as many points as possible in the timeframe allowed. If any teams are late back they will be given penalty points so timekeeping and planning is key.
