The Nitty-Gritty School Holiday Programme Details

Who: Kids aged 6 to 12 years

Where: My School Holiday Programme is great for kids who live in the Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, Papamoa or Waihi Beach areas. Our base varies depending on the day (see our schedule). At the Mount and Tauranga our shelter is set up and we adventure off from base and are outdoors exploring all day. At The Nest in Waihi Beach we run our day from a private property with bush, stream, garden and orchards to explore and play in all day.

NOTE: Drop off and Pick up are at our base for the day.

When: Nature Kids Adventure Club runs during each of the Primary School Holidays. 9 am to 3pm each day.

What to Bring: Sturdy shoes/sneakers, rainproof jacket, layered clothing, backpack with a sun hat, water bottle and food for the day (we love a litterless lunch box).

Book the kids for one day, or a few days.

Cost: $55 per child/per day

We Provide: Caring and supportive nature-based experiences, both creative and adventurous. Small groups, so children are not just a number. Pukeko Poo (aka hot or cold chocolate) for afternoon tea.
