Achieving anything you set your mind to, is all part of the Mind Body Soul course run by Outward Bound.

Experiencing an action-packed adventure can reveal true strengths which can be applied to everyday life – this opportunity is available to 16-18-year-olds in the Papamoa/Te Puke area.

In conjunction with the rotary clubs around the district, The JR McKenzie Trust is again providing a scholarship for those aged 16-18 to attend Outward Bound’s Mind Body and Soul Course in July.

This 21-day course costs $5495 but funding of $4025 is available, leaving applicants just $1470 to find to make this happen.

Papamoa Rotary spokesperson Bonnie Roger says those thinking about this opportunity should know that applications need to be in quick.

“To be eligible you need to be residing in the Papamoa/Te Puke area,” says Bonnie. “You will need to be fit – and can run 3km in under 25 minutes and be comfortable in and around water.”

“You also need to be the correct weight for your height – and, you need to be ready to challenge yourself to the limits and beyond.

“You will develop personal goals through outdoor modules. The Outward Bound experience is very much about learning to live in the moment.”

Applications must be made in the first instance to the Papamoa Rotary Club.

Applications need to be in by Thursday, March 31.
