Outdoor Education at Tawharanui Regional Park

Last week it was our privilege to create and coordinate for the second year running Mahurangi College’s Year 8 Camp. Now this isn’t any ordinary school camp..
All 220 year 8 students get the opportunity to get involved in an array of outdoor learning opportunities that include:

  • Guided snorkeling
  • Stand Up Paddleboarding
  • Wetlands Treasure Hunt
  • Volunteering with TOSSI (Tawharanui Open sanctuary Incorporated)
  • Beach Art and Bodyboarding
  • Ecology Trail Walk
  • Year 12 Leadership Games

The learning outcomes from camp go towards each student’s Year 8 action plan projects that will presented later in the year.
