Outdoor education forms a key part of the New Zealand curriculum. Values, key competencies and achievement objectives from specific learning areas, such as health and physical education, can be effectively learned and assessed through well-planned camping experiences.
Less travelling and greater parental support!
Located just 50 minutes from downtown Auckland, Hunua Falls Camp can greatly reduce travelling time and transport costs. For Auckland schools, this also makes it easier to attract the onsite support of busy parents. Schools visiting Auckland find the camp provides a cost-effective base for wider curriculum-based activities in the big smoke.
Powerful learning opportunities
Whether your goals are to develop broad motor skills, social skills and responsibility for the environment, or to address specific unit standards for senior students, the facilities and opportunities at Hunua Falls Camp support powerful learning experiences.
Camp supervision, learning opportunities and programme management are greatly enhanced when you are the only group on the property. At Hunua Falls Camp, you won’t have to share the facilities with others during your stay.
Flexibility to suit your budget
We understand that the financial investment each school and its community are able to make in outdoor education can vary considerably. That’s why we’ve structured Hunua Falls Camp to provide a full range of options. Many schools choose to minimise costs by preparing their own meals and designing their programme solely around the camp’s outdoor equipment and attractions. Others prefer to employ the services of professional caterers and or adventure activity providers. Either way, Hunua Falls Camp puts you in control.
Two Versatile Indoor Spaces
With a large heated hall/dining area and a separate chapel, both with excellent acoustics, Hunua Falls Camp offers excellent opportunities for indoor activities. There’s also a meeting area with a kitchenette and sufficient space to seat about 30 children. This area can be easily divided into two separate spaces, if required.
