For the Adventurous Journey section you'll need a sense of adventure and discovery as you go on a team journey, expedition or exploration.
You'll have the opportunity to learn more about the wider environment, as well as learning teamwork skills, improving your health and developing self-confidence. You'll probably end up outside your comfort zone at times, but you'll be kept safe with training and supervision. The result will be experiences you'll remember forever—you won't regret a minute of it!
Here’s a list of ideas that you could do for your Adventurous Journey, expedition or exploration, or use as a starting point to create a programme of your own.
