Business owner Glenn Beach has been delivering Outdoor Education for more than 15 years to people of all ages and all walks of life. Glenn is passionate about people and seeing them realise their potential. He is a qualified teacher, raft guide and holds the NZOIA Bush 1 qualification as well as outdoor first aid. Just recently Glenn and his wife purchased a small farm in the Wairarapa on the banks of the Ruamahunga river, to establish as a base for the KOEA. Accommodation is presently tenting only in a beautiful rural setting, surrounded by mature trees, by the Ruamahunga River. There is a large outdoor kitchen with running hot and cold water, bbq's, and a covered fire-pit that is excellent for cooking large quantities of delicious food.
At the Kahikatea Outdoor Education Academy, the focus is to provide safe, fun and well organised outdoor educational services, with the highest levels of customer satisfaction. The KOEA provides a comprehensive programme for schools/groups, with primary, secondary and international student programmes available. These are able to be tailored to meet the specific needs of the school and/or groups.
