11-day wilderness journey for Year 12 and 13 Students.

E3 is for Year 12-13 school students (ages 17-18). Travelling as a small community through remote wilderness areas of Aotearoa New Zealand, each expedition is focussed on developing the character of participants and strengthening their connections with God, others, and creation. Through a combination of shared experiences (back-country cooking, participation in citizen science projects and practical conservation, facilitating decision-making), daily discussions and solo-time, we will explore how we fit into God's story and reflect on what this might mean for the next season of life.

What's E3 About?

E3 is a partnership between SUNZ, Adventure Specialties and A ROCHA NZ. E3 ministries believe that wilderness experiences are significant - helping us to understand ourselves better and deepening our relationships with others, with God, and with God's creation.

Each journey looks different.

Our journeys range from tramping through the Lewis Pass high country and a multi-day rafting expedition down the Waiau Toa/Clarence River, or scaling alpine passes in Aspiring National Park and sea-kayaking across Lake Wanaka.

What E3 campers have said.

“I learnt a lot about myself and others, also how amazing creation is! Seeing beautiful scenery I’ve never experienced before all created by God!”

“It was an environment that you could feel comfortable to share your feelings - this was a big help as it was encouragement for me in my faith journey.”

“Through E3 I have grown in confidence in myself. I also think my mental strength has improved. What I learned on E3 has already helped me in the leadership role I now have at school."

“I have a new respect for creation and the need to conserve and appreciate what we have been given.”

“We started off as a bunch of strangers and ended up like a close knit family.”

Make sure you don't miss out.

Because our epic E3 expeditions only take a tight knit group, spots on E3 usually fill up quickly. We can only take about 12 campers on each trip so if you like the sound of E3 then make sure you register quick!
