Holiday Programmes

Get away, keep busy during school holidays

Looking for a fun, action-packed challenge in the great outdoors during the holidays for 14 -18 year olds? Hillary Outdoors runs two different holiday programmes with a different focus depending on age and level of challenge required.

The 5 day Holiday Action Challenge is a programme where the emphasis is on teamwork and fun. It is ideally suited to anyone 14-18 years old that is attending a Hillary Outdoors Centre for the first time. The 7 day Summit Leadership is a more challenging programme, better suited to 16-18 year olds. This is the ideal course for prefects, sports captains, school council members and students entering the workforce as the course uses the outdoors as a medium for exploring leadership theory, skills and related issues. The programme culminates with a double overnight expedition. Either of these programmes meet the requirements for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award Gold Residential programme.

You’ll visit some amazing places, meet new people, and have a great time doing it! With both programmes, you don’t need to be into sport or the outdoors, the main thing you need is a willingness to “have a go”. The programme does involve physical activity each day so a moderate fitness level will help you make the most of the programme.

Please download the programme information sheet for an overview of what each programme involves. Have a look at the Activities page to get an idea of what activities you may get to participate in.

Please note that programmes require a minimum number to be able to run. If the scheduled dates don’t suit, get a group together and book your own tailor made course by getting in touch with us.
