No. Participants will need to bring their own lunch and snacks for the day.
Participants will only need to bring personal items such as a hat, water bottle and lunch. APA will provide all necessary safety equipment for the activities. After you have enrolled in a program you will receive an information pack listing everything that participants will need to bring as well as other important details.
If your child cannot make one of the days please email or call us to let us know. It is important that we know if your child is not able to attend as we will be waiting for them at Central Pier 9 otherwise.
Yes. However we do have a limit on 4 requests per group of 12. For example if there is a group of 5 friends on the same program who request to be together we will have to split them between two groups. This is to help all participants make new friends during the week.
Yes we try to take as many photos as we can during the program. We will make these available to parents and guardians in the week following the program.
Yes we have two overnight programs. The Navigator and Navigator Emergency Response programs both have one overnight on the last night of camp. We are developing overnight programs for the Explorer and Adventurer age groups for the future so let us know if this is something that you would be interested in!
Members of APA’s management staff and delivery team have a broad range of qualifications from internationally recognized governing bodies such as the British Canoe Union (BCU) and Mountain Leader Training Board (MLTB), the New Zealand Outdoor Instructor Association (NZOIA) and US-based Wilderness Medical Associates (WMA). As well as this all new staff to APA must go through an induction program to ensure that their skills and knowledge are at a high standard.

No. We require all participants to wear life jackets for all water activities where the water depth is above the knee. For every water activity there will be one Camp APA staff member for every 6 participants to monitor safety. We also operate on a challenge by choice principle. This means that no staff member will force a student to participate in an activity that they are not comfortable doing.
