Help make good Kiwi Kids even greater: support our campaign for a new kayak

Auckland

Kayaking is an activity that is enjoyed by many students throughout our programmes – such regular use sees kayaks getting plenty of wear and tear. We are seeking your support to raise funds for a new kayak to be used at our Great Barrier Island Centre, to ensure students can enjoy kayak activities for years to come. See below a testimonial from a student who attended a Great Barrier Island programme

“It was a great opportunity to be active in so many outdoor pursuits during our week from school. I became very proficient at sea kayaking because we spent many hours practicing in the water. Great Barrier Island was a beautiful setting for our group to learn many new skills” – student from Melville High School.
