Strive is a programme is designed to allow young women aged 15-17 living in Southland, with little to no participation in outdoor recreation, to explore possibilities in an environment of support and safety.
Adventure Southland have worked with young women for many years and across a variety of programmes, including Women in the Wilderness, Lions Leadership, Southland ALIVE, and most recently – a local girls’ high-school Outdoors Club. We have identified a need for a programme catering specifically to younger women in the outdoors. Engaging with students in outdoor activities to gain confidence and build relationships is core part of our business, and immensely rewarding for both participants and our team.
Strive aims to build skills, motivation, and relationships through participation in outdoor adventure activities. Supporting students to experience new activities and learn new skills builds the confidence needed to continue engaging in outdoor recreation.
During the programme, participants will learn basic outdoor skills over three after-school sessions. These sessions will prepare students for a weekend of adventure at Borland Lodge, where they will have the opportunity to experience and build on rock climbing, abseiling, caving, kayaking, archery and bushcraft skills.
This programme is generously funded by KiwiSport, meaning the cost is kept low for participants.
