At MAC OP we specialise in teaching and instructing secondary school students in outdoors pursuits. We are based in the wonderful setting of Wanaka, Central Otago. This area gives us access to one of New Zealand's greater destinations for Rock Climbing, Rivers and Lakes to teach kayaking and canoeing, 3 ski areas to facilitate snowsports including snowcaving and avalanche awareness, and borders on the Mt. Aspiring National Park.


This website gives information to students about practical sessions, each of our units of work, gear requirements, department regulations, assessment requirements. There are resources that are available for viewing and downloading.
