Outdoor Education Program

Experience education outdoors while building relationships within your community

In the Outdoor Education Program stream students can explore nature, build group cohesion and enjoy outdoor experiences while learning new skills such as paddling, skiing and biking from qualified instructors. Momenta ensures a safe and fun learning environment for everyone involved. We will provide sport specific staff, extra technical clothing, outdoor education equipment and work with the school to arrange transportation and accommodation.

Momenta works with school staff to create program schedules that enhance the everyday learning and routine of the school. Programs can be during or outside of regular school hours. School staff can choose to participate in the program, however this is not a requirement. Together, students and staff can connect while learning new outdoor skills, activities and games.

  • “I'd like to extend a great thanks to yourself, and the frontline staff. Having MOMENTA in our school last week was a great experience for the students and I heard a lot of fantastic feedback from the staff and students. It was wonderful having your staff working with the students and I would absolutely love to have the program back again next year.”
