Social Nature Movement
At Social Nature Movement, we go beyond learning by doing and just running guided outdoor activities. We facilitate immersive natural experiences that connect you with nature in more conscious and meaningful ways.
Activities: Nature-based experiences through human-powered movement. SNM offers many 'classic' outdoor education services, such as kayaking, tramping and rock climbing.
Other SNM services include: Bouldering, caving, snow caving, mountaineering, stand up paddleboarding (SuP), One Day Nature School, Duke of Edinburgh (DoE) Adventurous Journeys, Dark Sky Stargazing tours, pack rafting and multisport (Coast to Coast) kayaking.
Niche SNM offerings: An opportunity to see innovation and industry-leading expertise in action: Bethells Boogie (Trade Marked), Clutha Quest (Trade Marked), Glamping Bell Tent accommodation, SUPKids (only provider in NZ), Meola Reef explorations, Whangamarino journeys and Waikato River journeys.
Accommodation: We are one of the only outdoor education and adventure recreation providers offering in-house glamping accommodation and large marquee services for 50+ people. Our glamourous camping is more spacious, equally affordable and comfortable.
Locations: SNS is primarily based in Auckland yet has resources and staff around the country, so we are mobile and can come to you! Wherever you are or want to go, our adventures and activities cater to everyone and include all you ever thought possible, and in more places than you have ever imagined. We also work on school grounds, campus camping in our GIamping tents and offer ABL activities.
Our school camps are more economical and nature-based as they are not at commercial campgrounds. Instead, they are based at regional park public campgrounds where there is more nature.
Services: SNM can take care of your needs from start to finish. We can help with equipment hire, staffing, accommodation and activities or even combine the whole lot. We can also incorporate curriculum subject areas and involve classroom teachers within their specialities. Every SNM outing is bigger than ourselves and the activity. We do something every time for the environment and the community. And, we keep processes and programmes simple, resulting in guarantees and less stress.
Assurance: Fair and honest industry pricing. First aid qualified, externally health and safety audited, all commercial insurances, activity qualified (NZOIA), passenger (P) endorsed drivers, police vetted and industry and university educated.
