Recreate NZ's major programmes include outdoor adventure camps, youth development getaways, urban youth events and school holiday programmes throughout New Zealand. By using the context of the outdoors and various getaway locations throughout New Zealand works twofold in developing young people with disabilities.

Firstly, it provides a rich prostectic environment for experiencial learning to develop life and social skills which are often not adopted in the classroom or home environment. This leads to greater confidence in who they are as individuals and progress towards independent living. Secondly, it allows these young people to become well traveled and experience incredible parts of New Zealand which the average New Zealander fails to appreciate.
