What We Offer

School Camps

Kakariki Camps offer a unique and fully inclusive school camp experience. You’ll have delicious food, a full range of activities (ie archery, stream study, mindfulness, team building), wonderful learning opportunities and friendly staff to ensure a successful and fun school camp.  We work collaboratively with teachers to ensure the best outcomes day to day.

A ‘tenting’ option is also available.

Students will be involved in a legacy project in the beech forest where they’ll learn to identify native species and help remove exotic plants. They’ll be taught about threats to this environment, the principles of permaculture and be encouraged to think for themselves about what we can all do to care for our part of the world.
