Camps and Trips

We will help you discover and learn more about New Zealand’s natural environment and our Kiwi culture! An annual camp, Camp Discovery and at least one trip per term challenge and encourage personal development, leadership, and confidence.

Camp Discovery

Our safe, educational camp tailored to our international students offers a refreshing break from the digital world, allowing the girls to disconnect while fully engaging in the wonders of our natural environment. Nestled in the foothills of the Waikato’s mighty Mount Pirongia, students embark on outdoor activities, roast marshmallows over campfires, and marvel at our clear night skies. The days are jam-packed with thrilling activities, including caving, flying fox, archery, and various games, providing entertainment with an endless sense of accomplishment.
