This Matariki adventure gives tamariki the experience of being in the forest, where they will begin to cultivate deep and meaningful connections to their natural environment. Children will learn survival skills and how to forage, harvest and cook edible native plants found in the ngahere (bush).

Led by exceptional instructors who teach kaitiakitanga (guardianship) to children through place-based and play-based learning experiences, children will come to understand that the taiao (natural world) will nurture them, and they, in turn, must nurture it.

Wet weather gear may be required. This event will go ahead rain or shine.

Suitable for children aged 7-12. Booking is essential.

Proudly supported by the Friends of Arataki.
