MODULE 1 - QUEENSTOWN - ORIENTATION
Welcome to winter in New Zealand! Meet your new crew and discuss security and safety, driving skills, get an intro to Aotearoa and settle in!
MODULE 2 - CULTURAL IMMERSION
What is Kiwi Culture? A mix of old and new, a sport and outdoors-obsessed multi-cultural nation with a cheeky sense of humour and a laid back way of life.

MODULE 3 - ADVENTURE TRAVEL - WEST COAST WANDERING
Renowned for its rugged wild beauty, you'll delve deep into deep rainforest, remote beaches, lakes and mountains. Caving will be the highlight as well as camping, hiking, sightseeing end exploration.
MODULE 4 - LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT - SELF & OTHERS
Leadership comes in many forms. Allowing yourself to be the best person you can, allowing a team to function optimally and finally, leading a team to encourage others to best they can too.
This module is all about helping you become a high performing individual and the ultimate team member. Activities will be on and off snow.
MODULE 5 - INTO THE WILD - LORD OF THE RINGS STYLES
The club fields of Canterbury are legendary for their snow, but also their unique culture. You’ll be hiking into basins and chutes that will leave your lungs burning but leave a smile that cannot be wiped off, as you drop into whole faces of untouched snow. Deep in the heart of middle earth (visiting places you've seen in the movies) you’ll enjoy activities off-snow too, including abseiling, rock climbing, sightseeing and down time with your new mates.
MODULE 6 - ADVENTURE TRAVEL - THE NAUGHTY NORTH
It's time to let your hair down, and cut loose with your new mates. You'll explore the top of the South Island....White Beaches, scenic sounds, BBQs and beers. There will be plenty of laughs and loads of fun. Outside of general sightseeing, exploration and fun, the highlight of this module is a 3-day hike and kayak on the famous Queen Charlotte Sound Track.
MODULE 7 - LEADERSHIP - TEAM
Having a framework for being leading others is a great skill in many aspects of life. In this module you will learn about the nature of groups and teams and strategies to lead others to achieve a desired outcome. You'll complete a number of teamwork activities that will require immediate thinking, open communication and natural problem solving.
MODULE 8 - CLIMB / HIKE / SKI WANAKA
You’ll live by the lake in awesome accommodation and discover new places as you hang out climbing, rappelling, hiking and skiing or boarding! The town has an awesome chilled vibe, and the locals are all impressively gnarly. And the views are simply epic.
MODULE 9 - ENVIRONMENTAL IMMERSION
It’s time to give back, and learn about the reward that comes from serving a greater good. You’ll be helping native wildlife wilderness areas to be returned to former glory. This could be native bird habitat restoration, cleaning up remote coastlines or restoring water quality in stream lines. Between project days you’ll be blowing out the cobwebs by enjoying the slopes of Ohau skifield, another kiwi gem!
END OF PROGRAM - FAREWELL PARTY!
