why bmac

 The Salvation Army Blue Mountain Adventure Centre (BMAC) is an outdoor adventure centre in the heart of New Zealand. Our mission is to help people discover and live out their God-given potential through the challenge of adventure.

The centre was established in 1990 and has become a well-known and trusted outdoor education centre that is used by organisations, schools and various groups from around the country. With a strong focus on safety and an enthusiastic team of staff, BMAC is the perfect choice for a safe, fun and memorable adventure.

Surrounded by the stunning adventure playground of Tongariro National Park, BMAC can be a place for reflection, learning, and of course, fun! This natural landscape provides the space for a wide range of outdoor activities and the excellent on-site facilities allow for a comfortable stay.

With many years of combined experience in outdoor leadership and instruction, our team are one of the many reasons people come back year after year. Our staff are trained in outdoor safety management and our centre maintains excellence in safety procedures.

We are totally committed to providing a high-quality experience that will allow your group to grow physically, mentally and spiritually.

Once we discovered this amazing place, we have never considered looking anywhere else. Not only is the venue comfortable, clean but it is affordable too. The team at BMAC have always been so happy, smooth and easy to deal with too. 5 stars from us!

My girls have attended several camps at BMAC and are eager to get to more! Having them arrive home full of the joys of life and being a kid is so great. They love the activities, rave about the food, the location and the staff.
