The mountains, forests, and coast of NZ are perfect for facilitating a 6 credit learning opportunity focused on leadership and skills acquisition in the context of adventure programming. The country is a leader in the industry of adventure. In scholarship as well as practice, New Zealand has contributed much to the field of adventure programming.
Adventure New Zealand is designed to meet students on both interest levels, that of the participant, as well as an aspiring instructor. This 6 credit course will provide a theoretical and applied study of wilderness leadership in an international context. Participants will study relevant leadership theory, critical wilderness skills, and international programming concepts. The program will culminate in a student-led “final” in which the instructors step back to observe the students put their new knowledge and skills to the test.
