The Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre
The Boyle provides opportunities to complete the Adventurous Journey section of your Award.
You will need a sense of adventure and discovery as you go on a team journey, expedition or exploration in our big Kiwi backyard. You will have the opportunity to learn more about the wider environment, as well as learn teamwork skills, make real decisions and accept real consequences, and gain self-confidence. You'll probably end up outside your comfort zone at times, but you'll be kept safe with training and supervision. The result will be experiences you'll remember forever— you won't regret a minute of it.
On offer in the beautiful North Canterbury area are engaging and exciting tramps, skills learning, swamp crossings, low ropes courses, bushcraft skills, climbing... Many adventures await you.
We run all levels of Journey - BRONZE, SILVER & GOLD
First you will need to do your Journey Training at the level you are working towards.
You have to do your Practice Journey on different dates to your Qualifying Journey (2 separate Journeys in total for each level).
We offer places for Practice and Qualifying Journeys at the same time, but participants must be at the same level.
Practice and Qualifying Journeys will be run when we have sufficient numbers enrolled (min 4). It is best if you can find your own group ready to do the level of award you are interested in, then we can schedule dates straight away. If not, you can go onto our waiting list.
Contact us if you are interested!
