Adventure Journey

The aim of this section is to encourage a spirit of adventure and discovery.

This section focuses on your development as an individual and the way you work as part of a group, not just overcoming the physical demands of the venture. Ventures are done with a purpose and undertaken on foot, by cycle, on horseback, in canoes or boats without motorised assistance.

Your Adventurous Journey Section should provide you with opportunities to:
– demonstrate enterprise
– work as a member of a team
– respond to a challenge
– develop self-reliance
– develop leadership skills
– recognise the needs and strengths of others
– make decisions and accept the consequences
– plan and execute a task
– reflect on a personal performance
– enjoy and appreciate the outdoors

The process:

Training – all participants need to cover the preliminary training no matter what the venture is
Practice Journey – all participants need to undertake the appropriate number of practice journeys
Qualifying Journey – the qualifying venture.
