Hillary Outdoors Programmes

In 2017 Peel forest Outdoor Centre formed a relationship with Hillary Outdoors with the aim to make their educational programmes and philosophy more accessible to students nationwide.

Hillary Outdoors (formerly OPC) draws on more than 40 years of experience, after Graeme Dingle established the centre in Tongariro in 1972 with the vision of enabling young New Zealanders the opportunity to learn more about themselves while adventuring in the outdoors.

Peel Forest Outdoors offers a variety of Hillary 5 day to 5 week programmes, where people come for life-changing experiences.

We also offer the chance for students to work towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award certification and Unit Standards.
