    Overview

    Immerse yourself in New Zealand and Fiji’s incredible natural environments and unique Polynesian cultures!

    This Summer Program combines a week of blazing sun, pristine sea, golden sand and exciting water sports in Fiji, with three weeks of adventure and cultural immersion in the North Island of New Zealand. You'll try mountain biking, white water rafting, snorkeling, scuba diving, and stand up paddle boarding, while also immersing yourself in Maori culture by attending cultural performances and a traditional hangi feast. So if you’re looking to get stuck into a myriad of different activities, both on land and at sea – this program is most certainly for you! 

    Our students are also able to make a difference and learn about local conversation on two rewarding volunteer projects at coastal regional parks. You will work alongside park rangers, help plant native trees, and learn all about native New Zealand ecology and wildlife, while also getting he chance to spot endangered birds, camp under the starry night sky, and relax on beautiful white sandy beaches at the end of a rewarding day of volunteering.
