Silver Award

Congratulations! You are on your way to achieving your Silver 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 Silver level, the young person will build on the learning developed during the Bronze Adventurous Journey. With all new challenges and places to explore, an adventure is just around the corner…

Training

Here at Bigfoot Adventures we understand that people learn more effectively when they are being challenged in a fun and engaging environment! Over the course of one day, 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 leadership, and camp craft, along with many more core camp craft skills.
