Les Martinets Mountaineering: Final Training

27 May 2016

Physical, mental and organisational preparation for Global Campus Worldwide Expedition

The students have come to the end of their physical training for their mountaineering trip to Les Martinets in Switzerland. Apart from the physical and mental preparation, there is also the very important organisational preparation. On the expedition, all the students will be divided into groups of three with a budget of 15 US dollars per person to prepare an evening meal whilst on their overnight visit to Cabane Barraud.

On the last week of our training, students have been very busy putting their heads together in small groups to plan their desired menu. They were also taught the correct way of packing their backpack.

It has been a very tough and vigorous two months of solid training. All the students are highly motivated and very excited. We are all ready for the expedition and to face the many challenges that await us!
