Our Mountaineering School is an example of the primary goal of our Adventure Schools – to get young people interacting with the great New Zealand outdoors.

Scouts Aotearoa’s Mount Ruapehu Lodge provides a base camp for Venturers 15+, Rovers and Leaders to learn mountaineering skills.

This year’s school will be run in conjunction with New Zealand Alpine Club, using highly skilled instructors, up to date equipment and current best practice.

The students will learn basic mountaineering and above the bush line skills that enable them to explore the mountains.
