AdventureWorks specialise in experiential learning and adventure centered outdoor education in the Auckland and Waikato regions. We are more than an outdoor education provider – we use adventurous activities and outdoor environments to develop people and groups. Our style of education especially supports the key competencies: Relating to Others, Managing Self, Participating and Contributing and Thinking.
Challenge course specialists
Our main operations base is on the Unitec campus in Mount Albert Auckland. Here we have our own challenge ropes course. We also operate the mighty river domain challenge course beside Lake Karapiro. Our safety audit scope allows us to operate at challenge course or abseil site throughout the North Island. Our outdoor education and Duke of Edinburgh program extends from the central plateau area to Northland.
Adventure based learning and personal development
We can base our programmes at most Challenge Courses throughout the North Island. The Adventureworks Challenge Course on the Unitec Campus, Mt Albert is our main Challenge Course and operations base. Our programmes produce meaningful changes in groups and individuals. They are not just an outdoor recreation activity, they are a personal and social change process that uses the Challenge Course as the medium for the development of interpersonal, social, communication, teamwork and leadership skills.
