When it's cold, windy and wet in California, it's SUMMER TIME in New Zealand.
Summer in New Zealand means plenty of opportunities to participate in outdoor activities. This course will focus on sport and human movement in a global context, and specifically New Zealand. We will:
- sea kayak in Cathedral Cove and river kayak in the Puhoi River,
- hike/run in Coromandel Forest Park, Waitakere Ranges Parkland, Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley and Rangitoto Island,
- mountain bike in Woodhill Forest, and
- run/bike through the city of Auckland.
We will explore the City of Auckland and learn about life in the largest city in New Zealand. We will also visit a Maori village and learn about the cultural history of New Zealand. We will learn how to play cricket, netball, and rugby; three very popular sports in New Zealand. And we will have fun doing it all!
