Yours starts when you sign up
Every team and every expedition is bespoke. Here is an outline of what the lead up to a full 4 week expedition might look like.
- Choose your destination
- Presentation at student assembly
- Attend an information evening to find out more
Once we have a team signed up, you’re off!
Let’s get started with the launch meeting. We’ll be in after school to get fundraising action plans underway, start team bonding and give you a feel for your destination. We believe it is most powerful when students earn their expedition fee so we are here to help every step of the way.
It’s time to dive into your destination. If your itinerary hasn’t already been curated for you, you will get involved in choosing your highlights – from how demanding your trek will be and which community project you want to engage with, to which adrenaline activities you want to tick off your bucket list. The choice is yours.
Team training days
Ahead of the training expedition you will need to plan your team’s menu. Pack up your boots, backpack, sleeping bag and head off on your training expedition for 1-2 days. You’ll start to understand how an expedition feels, how a team works and what leadership look like. Our Expedition Leaders will empower you as students with the skills to make your expedition a success.
The leadership team are also getting prepared behind the scenes. All our Expedition and School Leaders attend our Summit training event where they delve deeper into the itinerary, logistics and risk assessments. It’s an awesome day. We love it.
Time flies! This update will be here before you know it and gives us the chance to make sure you’re up to speed with everything you need before departure. From kit, visas and vaccinations to how the team are planning to get to/from the airport, we’ll cover it and answer any questions.
We run a build-up day just before departure to ensure all students have the right kit, visas and passports. And then you’re are off!
