Sir Edmund Hillary was the first Patron of Hillary Outdoors, giving his name to an organisation that in his words is “one of the most worthwhile undertakings in New Zealand.”

Hillary Outdoors has been offering outdoor education programmes for almost 50 years.

Our commitment is to the youth of New Zealand – providing them with skills to enable them to develop as individuals and as part of a team.

We have an urgent appeal: the very future of Hillary Outdoors is at risk.

Due to these unprecedented times, we have been forced to stop our nationwide events programme and suspend programmes at our Centres for the foreseeable future.

We have lost 100% of our business over the next few months.

We are asking for your support.

If you believe in Hillary Outdoors, please donate.

Your donation helps, no matter the amount.
