Excellence Award for safety Systems & Equipment

  NZ’s Premier Provider of FUN & Adventure for Adults, teens & kids 

I have run several DARE activity days using ROCKUP and have always been impressed with the professionalism in the delivery of their programs.
The Children were all challenged & totally captivated by the activities & the activities fit the DARE ideals in everyway. The children all learnt a lot about themselves & each other by practically applying the theory they learnt in the classroom. The addition of ROCKUP’s activity based learning programmes to our DARE programs has proved to be invaluable towards getting the message across.
The teachers, principals, students and parents raved about ROCKUP & have requested we provide ROCKUP again as part of our DARE Programs.

Located in the beautiful scenic Hunua Ranges with access to all the ARC Parks bush walking tracks and dams, at the top of the Hunua Falls on a private family farm. The camp has a huge deep swimming hole on the Wairoa River that runs to the Hunua Falls suitable for kayaking, swimming, rafting the camp being a fantastic site for archery, shooting & team building activities.
This idyllic scenic site allows for the  active development of self sustainability and bush craft skills which in todays society are sorely needed to create confidence, appreciation for social and environmental values.

HISTORY: The Pearson Farm has hosting schools for over 35 years as part of their senior EOTC as it is a tent in camp with a large fire pit, potable stream for pure spring drinking water and the large river for activities and swimming.

In 1990 the Army Cadets adopted this site to run their training programs due to the private nature of the camp and ability to maintain a live fire shooting range.  In 2010 the Army & Air force Cadets held a Jamboree at the Campsite which was an overriding success.

Many High Schools & Intermediate Schools have been using the farm and camp site area for the last 25 years as part of their EOTC senior leadership and team development programs.

Adventure Companies and Polytechnic Training Institutions have also been using the site for Corporate Team Building, Personal Development, Family Fun Days and orienteering programs.

The 180 Acre Pearson Family Farm surrounds YMCA Camp Adair and has been used by the Camp since 1938 to access the bush and Hunua Falls areas. Utilising the scenic camp site area as a picnic stop over area.

ROCKUP Adventure Activities is a Pearson family owned business that has also operates from the farm as ROCKUP BASE and is able to provide exciting fun adventure activities to enhance the experience by providing all equipment with fully qualified friendly instructors to take care of all health & safety issues.

ROCKUP can also provide services for the camp including picnic tables, tents, bbq's, firewood and delivery of any additional equipment that you may need transported to the site.

ROCKUP_rock_climbing_for_schools_1.jpgWould you like to help students develop, self esteem, confidence, trust, teamwork, safety awareness & positive behavioural learning?
ROCKUP's most exciting & popular program is the Rock-climbing Wall. The unique ROCKUP systems with the 8m high, full autobelay rockwalls all operate with 4 climbers at a time, in wet or dry conditions partially due to the use of the inflatable classrooms (AIRBARNs).  The programs utilize, buddy networking, interactive teamwork & safety via harnessing, development of climbing & abseiling techniques with ongoing positive growth of self esteem.
ROCKUPs combination of a quality, structured, instructed process with encouraged repeated achievement, culminates in the excitement from a shared comraderie of conquering fear that crosses all boundaries.
ROCKUP over the last 5 years has developed a very successful Road Safety Program with the rockwall. The use of the unique 3 Buckle Harness...ensures the BUCKLE-UP Stay Safe message is a natural component with a wide range of other very important road awareness, driving and life messages that with the full VAK impact guarantee success. 
RAFT_build_and_race_at_a_lake_3.jpgDo your students need to develop hands on construction & life skills?

ROCKUP provides all the equipment with a trained Instructor and full VAK process. A great way to encourage life skills, rope and construction techniques that develop confidence, responsibility, listening and consequence for action strategies. The achievement of teamwork, design, proper use of materials or recognition of environmental factors can be by far the greatest way for a lesson to stick for a lifetime... only in our scenarios the danger is perceived rather than real and the environment a controlled one. However the positive team and skill based learning is huge and great FUN is shared by all...wet or dry.
