Adventurous Journeys include 3 parts: Preliminary Training, the Practice Journey and the Qualifying Journey.
|Level||Practice Journey||Qualifying Journey||Hours of Activities|
|Bronze||1 day||2 days, 1 night||6 hours per day|
|Silver||2 days, 1 night||3 days, 2 nights||7 hours per day|
|Gold||2 days, 1 night||4 days, 3 nights||8 hours per day|
Our staff will work with groups and individuals to ensure that all the appropriate training has been conducted. Most often this training will take place in local communities on weekends or a series of evenings scheduled at the convenience of groups.
Preliminary Training includes:
- Safety Precautions & Emergency Planning
- Map Reading
- Compass Work
- Wilderness Code of Behaviour
- Cooking and menu planning
- Knowledge of equipment
- Site selection
- Reading through the Record Book
- Any additional training needed
This training must be completed before the Qualifying Journey. The materials must be reviewed, even if it has been learned before.
We provide certified and experienced staff for this training, which can be completed all at once or in several different sessions. It is the participant’s responsibility to ensure this requirement is met.
The Practice Journey includes:
- Testing equipment
- Practicing the chosen activity for the qualifying journey (or a similar activity) to test endurance and fitness
- Risk assessment and safety planning
- Any additional training required
Practice Journeys help participants prepare for their Qualifying Journey. Bronze Practice Journeys can be completed in one day, but Silver and Gold Practice Journeys will include two full days and an overnight stay.
NOTE: Where necessary, an extra day (bronze) or two days (silver and gold) can be added on to the Qualifying Journey to be counted as the Practice Journey. However, this still needs to be written up as the Practice Journey in the journey report.
