Pride Escapes

Pride Escapes Logo

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the next Pride Escape is being planned for Summer 2022/3.

Pride Escape is a school holiday programme where we take your children away for a five day trip of a lifetime.

We run four Pride Escapes a year, each to the same destination in New Zealand. The activities that we do at each destination vary based on the season and we try not to repeat activities. We design the trips to give the cubs the very best of Pride Lands, with a focus on social education, teamwork, self-organisation and participation. We help them develop a sense of responsibility and discipline and we do heaps of structured physical activity to keep them fit and healthy.

If your child requires extra support during a Pride Escape, we can provide additional, dedicated, one-on-one mentoring for them during the entire trip. See our fees page for the cost.

The kids help to make many of the great nutritious meals we have, and we all eat together.

There are only 24 places available on each Pride Escape, and they fill up quickly, so book early to avoid missing out.


The Summer 2022/3 Pride Escape is to the wild West Coast of the South Island. For more information see the flyer here.


23rd to 28th of January 2023.


Any children aged 9-17 years old.
