An exciting opportunity for you, or someone you know?


Waipara Adventure Centre welcomes hundreds of school children each year for camps, as part of their education outside of the classroom. To achieve this we train instructors each year in all activities and duties including high ropes, abseiling, and rock climbing. Historically these young people have come from overseas on exchange as part of a gap year programme. However with our borders largely closed we are having to find
a new normal.


We are seeking energetic young people (17-22 years old), who
are looking for an adventure. Experience in the outdoors is not
essential, as you will be trained in all the skills you need. You will
be guided in your development as an instructor to the competency levels expected by today’s Adventure Industry. You need not be looking for a career in the industry. Perhaps, you are looking for work? An opportunity to do something different until Uni or a course starts? maybe you have flexible schooling or are all done? Or even looking for adventures here in New Zealand, while you wait to be able to travel again?


If you are interested, we would love to hear from you.


We need to be ready for the term holidays in October and will be
working both Term 4 2020 and Term 1 2021. There is likely to be
other work over during December and January also. You must be available for the first training weekend 31 July to 2 August 2020, with further training follow.


For all enquiries email or call
William 027 334 6881.


As a Christian Camp, Waipara Adventure Centre serves many parts of the community and instructors are likely to be asked to also work weekends and during the summer school holidays to invest their skills into these groups as well. Given the nature of the work, contracts will be structured as part time/on demand.
