This paper reports findings from research into adventure therapy practice in Aotearoa New Zealand. The way practitioners have learned their adventure therapy practice is explored, and what they consider may be helpful to help the field flourish is identified. The findings are discussed through linking to a Community of Practice model. Intentional development of this model in Aotearoa/New Zealand is advocated with justification in terms of educational theory and these research findings. Given its applicability to the development aims of the international adventure therapy committee, consideration for use of a Community of Practice model for the international adventure therapy community is suggested.
