ServiceIQ Gateway Cultural Camps

Getaway to a great adventure in Māori Tourism

ServiceIQ offers a choice of fantastic Gateway Tourism Cultural Camps held at beautiful marae around the country, such as Waitangi, Kapiti Island, Rotorua and Waitomo Caves. The camps are designed to give Year 13 students the rare opportunity to gain first-hand experience, practical skills and unit standards, while staying in a unique New Zealand cultural setting.

Camps are arranged by ServiceIQ, hosted by marae, and are partnered with tourism operators to provide some of the workplace experience and learning.

During the school holidays, the students will study and complete Tourism Māori Unit Standards, learn about nearby tourism attractions, the history and tikanga of the host marae – creating an authentic lens through which to understand Māori tourism and its value to the NZ tourism industry.  

All up, it’s a memorable adventure in a stunning setting, not to be missed.
