Explore the buried village of Te Wairoa, learning about the history of the area and gaining an understanding of the way life in New Zealand over 100 years ago. Take a gondola to the top of Mount Ngongotaha where you will strap on your helmet and race your friends down the high-speed luge track. Hike the blue and green lakes, the geothermal area and the Redwood forest as you adventure around Rotorua.
At the end of each program, students reflect on their experiences and the issues they engaged with, and talk about how to apply this new understanding to their own worlds. During or after their closing discussion, groups participate in Rustic Ties, a unique and powerful activity that allows students to capture the memories and learning moments of their program to process and share with their communities back home.
