Schools, Scouts & Pursuits Programs

Aqua Ventura has developed strong relationships with different schools, colleges, universities and scout groups through our independent & creative student pursuits programmes.
Each program is designed individually so that your group gets what it needs.
The importance of travelling to a natural environment while being challenged through different activities is an important tool for child and human development.
Encouraging children to develop both physically and mentally gives children a broader foundation to over come fears, learn new skills, real time problem solving , interact within a new culture. Socialise outside the comforts of known environments.

What we offer:
