YMCA Hawke’s Bay offers a wide range of outdoor education programmes and activities for all types of groups in the Bay and beyond. All our programmes are customised to suit your needs! We also work with a number of third parties to provide other activites that are not listed, so contact us if there is something else you would like to try.
Programme Manager, Kevin Webb, has 25 years’ experience in outdoor instruction, and heads the Outdoor Education activities. Kevin and the team at the YMCA are passionate about developing young people and their aim is to offer an experience to transform young people and adults lives for the better. We believe every person should have the opportunity to be in the outdoors, and learn about the great New Zealand wilderness.
We have programmes and initiatives for everyone, no matter the age, background or ability. Our aim is to help everyone young or old push their boundaries, grow in confidence and discover capabilities they didn’t know they had.
Safety is always our first priority. We are professionally audited by Outdoorsmark under the Adventurous Activities Regulation (NZ National Body). Every instructor carries a first aid kit and personal locater beacon or satellite communications.
