• The Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Award

Adventure Journey Options

Bronze Adventurous Journey

  • Educating students through both marine and land-based learning to provide a solid foundation for progressing through this award.
  • We combine training and practice journeys to give students hands on learning in a fun and safe environment

Silver Adventurous Journey

  • Building on skills already learnt, students will be more involved in the planning and preparation of their journey and expeditions will be further afield.
  • We encourage participants to take control of the journeys and lead when required. This gives them ownership and helps build responsibility.

Gold Adventurous Journey

  • Explore clear waters, sheltered campsites and natural sanctuaries that make the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park one of the worlds best sea kayaking locations.
  • Join New Zealand’s premiere Gold Residential Project. Sail and kayak with us in partnership with the New Zealand Sailing Trust.
