YMCA Kiwi Adventure


Our Story

Our History

Kiwi Adventure was founded in 1997 by a group of individuals who were passionate about introducing others to the outdoors in a safe and fun environment.
The Trust has a strong mandate to develop young people through challenge and adventure and this led to the development of the GO-4-12 Youth Adventure Racing in 2006.

In 2007 this event became the New Zealand Secondary Schools Adventure Racing Championships and attracts up to 200 amazing Young People who along with racing are learning important lessons about themselves and others.

The Trust’s History is rich in stories of young people having life changing experiences through the camps, programmes, events and the work we do with community.
