Discovery Challenge

This popular 2-week adventure is designed specifically for home-schooled students aged 15 – 18 years.

Each summer Hillary Outdoors welcomes students on an adventure of learning and discovery! The Discovery Challenge Programme brings together home-schooled students at our island classroom – Aotea Great Barrier Island. Students work together in teams, discover new passions, adventure in the outdoors, and even gain unit standards if they wish.

Offered in late January to early February each year – check back here for the next Discovery Challenge Programme date or contact us for more information.

“Thank you for giving me this opportunity. I’m so grateful for being able to have such an amazing adventure! I am a shy introvert and was so thrilled to have been able to open up and be myself in such a safe environment, challenging myself and helping me to become more confident in myself and others. I’ve learnt so much about this wonderful country we live in and how to work in a team. I’m so thankful for being able to go on such an amazing trip ,it has been one of the best weeks of my life and one I won’t ever forget! Forever grateful.”
