About Recreate NZ

Recreate NZ is a registered charitable Trust which exists to provide positive ‘out of family’ experiences for youth and young adults with disabilities. Recreate was established in 2002 by a group of parents in order to create more social and recreational opportunities for their children with disabilities. Over the last 13 years, Recreate NZ has grown a lot, and now is a provider of a wide range of adventure, educational, recreational and social development programmes.
