Bronze

Bronze Award

This is the first step towards achieving the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Adventurous Journey. This section of the award aims to ‘encourage a spirit of adventure and discovery’ in each participant.

At Bronze level, the young person will gain an introduction to expedition preparation and planning as part of a team. Students will then have the opportunity to develop these skills further during the Bronze Practice and Qualifying Journey events.

 

Training

Here at Bigfoot Adventures we understand that people learn best when they are being challenged in a fun and engaging environment! Over the course of two days, the Bigfoot crew will facilitate the Duke of Ed course syllabus through hands on activities that provide the young person with the opportunity to practice the skills that will set them up for the Practice and Qualifying Journeys. During the training students will learn about what to pack and how to pack it, along with many other camp craft essentials.
