School Groups & Youth Groups

Bring your class or team to The Playground.

We are the perfect place for your class or team to visit while in Queenstown.

We set up The Playground with groups in mind, because we wanted to create an affordable place in Queenstown, that sport teams, schools and community groups could come together to play, learn, connect and be challenged.

At The Playground, we're experts in group activities that create unforgettable experiences for school camps and sports trips. Our unique group activities promote connections, confidence, and lots of laughter while aligning with EOTC requirements. Boosting leadership skills, resilience, and self-awareness, we provide a unique opportunity to strengthen relationships with peers and teachers.

Our Queenstown site is driven by a focus on good, old fashioned fun, that cultivates active wellness. We can cater our activities for groups of 6 to 200 people.

Our Resilience and Personal Strengths Program 

Our Resilience and Personal Strengths Program is the perfect way to add a little bit extra to The Playground experience. Experience the power of your inner superhero as you conquer heart-pounding Ropes Challenge and embark on thrilling Archery Combat adventures. But it's not just about the excitement; we're here to sprinkle a touch of wisdom as well. Amidst all the fun, we're sharing valuable lessons on resilience and guiding you to uncover your hidden superpowers. Believe in us; this is an adventure cloaked in enlightening learning!

What people say:

 "This is the second time we have taken a group of students to the Playground. It is a brilliant facility and students will have fun for hours. Brilliant leadership from Aaron who connected with every student and set the tone of fun and safety from the beginning, setting expectations of participation and giving everything a go that our students rose too. Every student was supported and achieved whilst having ridiculous amounts of fun. We definitely recommend The Playground for any school group. Akaroa Area School will be back!" -Penny Mann (Google Review)

"We had over 50 students and they had the best time at The Playground! Penny, Aaron and the team were so positive, supportive and gave our kids an experience to remember. Team work, determination, resilience and building empathy were a few of the qualities they worked on as well as trying activities that they had never tried before (bubble soccer, combat archery and obstacle-ropes course) and having immense fun. Thank you Team Playground. You guys Rock! We will be back:)" - Janey Winders (Google Review)
