For those wanting to recreate safely in the outdoors, we develop programmes that will take people to the next skill level, novice – intermediate – advanced. Programmes can be developed in a broad cross section of outdoor pursuits. These include rock climbing, mountaineering, white water kayaking,sea kayaking, navigation and sailing. The programmes are run by passionate outdoor instructors who want to pass on the skills that they have learnt in a fun and inspirational way.

These programmes will help ensure you can safely recreate in the outdoors and enjoy the amazing environment we have here in New Zealand. Our programmes are run from either OPC Tongariro or OPC Great Barrier. Get a group of people together and we will do the rest. You may also wish to check out our individual courses we run for students during the holiday periods.

If you aspire to learn the skills of rock climbing or to broaden your existing skill base, OPC can implement a course that will achieve your goals. We have experienced, passionate NZOIA qualified instructors who have climbed in areas around the globe.
