Thoughts & Testimonials
"I realised just how much I had learnt from doing the award. Before I started bronze I would never have thought I would have been able to lead a group of people the same age as me or even older and to have them respect the decisions that I made. I have realised how much I have grown and how much more courage I have to make decisions and the belief in myself that it is something that I can do."
"I have really enjoyed working with Auckland Challenge to complete my Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award. They were such an instrumental part in guiding me towards the completion of my Gold Award. I was provided with endless support and guidance throughout the process. ACI is well organized and flexible and have many platforms which allow a good flow of information to its participants. The Monthly award meetings held in various locations around Auckland are easily accessible. It was great to have a welcoming and friendly environment, where I could go if I had any questions about the award, or wanted to plan the next adventurous journey. ACI is always happy to help and provide a positive atmosphere. I loved completing my adventurous journeys through ACI. Completing tramps under experienced guidance and gaining lots of knowledge in the field, is what made the adventurous journeys a highlight for me. ACI made the time completing my award really enjoyable; they were there every step of the way and I could not have done it without them."
"I did my Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award through Auckland Challenge. The three years from my bronze award to my gold award were long, but along the way I had a lot of fun and I met some great people. Throughout my time I did quite a few tramps, each one with a different group of people. Auckland Challenge’s monthly meetings made it easy for me to meet up with my tramping group and to plan each adventurous journey. Auckland Challenge was also there at every step in the process to provide support which made the whole experience great."
