Northland outdoor education centre gets $10k to help low decile schoolkids

A Bay of Islands outdoor education centre has won $10,000 in a national competition to continue to provide free camps for students from low decile schools from across New Zealand.

Bay Light offers unique free camps, offering high quality outdoor learning and activities around the Bay of Islands, as a key area of New Zealand for culture and history.

As winner of the Canon Oceania Grants' Small Business category, Bay Light has won $5000 Canon cameras and $5000. The cash prize will enable the business to host two low-decile schools.

The two Canon cameras will be used to capture footage and photography of the camp experiences for marketing purposes.
