What participants can expect
Throughout the programme, participants can either develop existing interests or try something new. The Award is not a competition; it is based on personal improvement and achievement. Once participants have set their goals, striven to achieve them and shown improvement, they will achieve their Award.
The first three sections can be completed either through school or non-school based activities provided that detailed logs are kept and then authenticated by a responsible adult leader.
The Adventurous Journey training expeditions and the actual expeditions themselves are supervised by the school and completed in teams. The key element to aim for is teamwork in the planning and execution of the trip, set against the background of the real challenges posed by an unfamiliar environment - which should be challenging but within the team’s capabilities.
