A JH Aotearoa Parent and Child experience is a 6-day action packed adventure that is transformational.
The JH Aotearoa challenges and teachings create a bond between a parent and a teenager that will last far beyond the event.
PARENT & CHILD ADVENTURE EXPERIENCE
JH Aotearoa is a place of ADVENTURE - From high ropes courses, to white water rafting to mountain biking, these physical challenges are linked to spiritual truths. The adventure is exhilarating, exciting and inspirational.
It is a place of CHALLENGE – where you will achieve things that you didn’t think you could, where you and your teenager will learn how to practically live out your faith, in your family and in your world.
It is a place of DISCOVERY – where you can discover your identity, your strengths, and even your life purpose.
It is a place of INSPIRATION – where you can take time out from the busy pace of life, in the beauty of creation and draw close to God.
It is a place of RESTORATION – where relationships with God, and with family are built, strengthened, and deepened and where relationships with new friends are formed.
JH Aotearoa is a place of TRANSFORMATION – where God is able to touch hearts and change lives and inspire us to be all that He created us to be.
We would love to have you join us in 2020 for the Parent & Child Adventure Experience!
