It’s a life of adventure
Adventure, exploration, ‘survival’, self-sufficiency, teamwork, making, orienteering, camping, first aid… these are all valuable skills on their own. Together, they cultivate leadership, teamwork, resilience, discipline, and confidence—the making of Christian men who have learned love and respect.
The programme is run through weekly evening meetings, indoors and out, various excursions as well as camping and annual regional events. As the boys mature, they are given national opportunities, expeditions and even snow camps.
Michael Stead Lodge
Michael Stead Lodge—owned by the BB Northern Regional Trust—is an example of a typical BB camp. Located in the Kauaeranga Valley in the Coromandel Forest Park, the lodge offers boys a real outdoor, backcountry experience.
