The Award - Bronze

Welcome to your first step in the Adventurous Journey space! At Bronze level, you will gain an introduction to expedition preparation and planning as part of a team. You’ll then have the opportunity to develop these skills further during the Bronze practice and qualifying journeys.


Over the course of one day, the Bigfoot crew will facilitate the course syllabus through hands on activities that provide you and your peers with the opportunity to practice the skills that will set you up for the practice and qualifying journeys. 

During the training, you’ll learn about navigation, campcraft, leadership, trip & meal planning, the gear required for your very first journey with Bigfoot Adventures, and some basic outdoor first aid skills!

Public Bronze Training days start at $100 per person.
