Achieving anything you set your mind to, is all part of the Mind Body Soul course run by Outward Bound.

Experiencing an action-packed adventure can reveal true strengths which can be applied to everyday life, and that opportunity is available to 16-18 year olds.

In conjunction with the Rotary Clubs around the District, The JR McKenzie Trust is once again providing a scholarship for 16-18 year olds to attend Outward Bound’s Mind Body and Soul Course.

Following postponement due to COVID-19, it’s now intended that the course will go ahead in December.

This 21-day course is fully funded, but applications need to be in quick.

“You will need to be fit,” says a Papamoa Rotary spokesperson, “and can run 3km in under 25 minutes and be comfortable in and around water.”

“You also need to be the correct weight for their height and you need to be ready to challenge yourself to the limits and beyond.

"You will develop personal goals through outdoor modules. The Outward Bound experience is very much about learning to live in the moment.”

Applications must be made in the first instance to the Papamoa Rotary Club.

Contact Bonnie Roger on (07) 575 8224, or email  for more information.  

Applications need to be in by Friday, October 16.
