YMCA Kiwi Adventure


Our Programmes


programmes1.jpgAt the Kiwi Adventure Trust we believe that all programmes need to be fun, educational and safe.

We design our programmes to match the group or individuals that we are working with to ensure engagement and great outcomes. We take advantage of a great variety of areas in the Hawkes Bay District and can introduce participants to places that they may not have even known existed in Hawke's Bay.

The places we can run programmes for you is extremely varied with a number of standing camps, wilderness areas, pristine rivers, secluded caves, indoor and outdoor high ropes, the Flaxrock Community Climbing Wall or we can bring the adventure to you.

We have been awarded the OutdoorsMark certification and are proud of our programmes that we run. OutdoorsMark was designed by the Outdoor community to give participants on adventure activities, and the public, the assurance that the management of the activities has been checked by an independent expert - an OutdoorsMark auditor.
