This journey is great students doing the Duke of Edinburgh program or students looking for an amazing adventure with in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park.
The first two nights will be spent on the water with Auckland Sea Kayaks, where students will learn how to kayak and camp in a safe, fun and supportive environment. They will get the opportunity to lead and be led by their fellow peers under the guidance of an experienced and qualified instructor. They will also put to use their map reading and navigational skills, follow Leave No Trace and gain understanding for how each of the 7 principles applies to the present environment and their day to day lives.
The following two nights will be spent sailing on either Lion New Zealand, or Steinlager2. Everybody on board will have the opportunity to learn to sail the boats, help with the preparation of meals and sleep aboard. They will be put into a watch rotation system to learn about different aspects of sailing, put into practice reading the weather, plan our destination and to work together to sail the boat to that destination. We engage everyone in beach clean ups, raft building, problem solving or communication activities to further develop skills and enhance personal growth.
