Break-Away School Holiday Programmes

Adventure Specialties Trust will once again be running Break-Away School Holiday Programmes in January 2018 – at no cost to participants!
 
Break-Away programmes are a government initiative that provides stimulating, fun and structured holiday activity for eligible West Auckland youth aged 11 to 17 years, who may be at risk of poor outcomes and would not normally have access to paid holiday programmes.
 
Activities include a mix of adventure tramping, adventure caving, kayaking, abseiling, rock climbing and more – with all specialist gear being provided by the Trust. See this flyer for more details.
