Our informative, interesting and highly useful training days are designed to provide you with a great opportunity to pick up lots of useful hints and tips, learn and apply some new skills.
You will also be going on a good day’s walk (approx 4-5 hours) which will help you determine your own fitness levels and put you through your paces on terrain similar to what you may experience abroad. You will also meet some like-minded people and have some fun as well!
Upon arrival you will be met by your instructors and receive a welcome brief and have the opportunity to meet your follow participants. You will have your first set of seminars and learn about personal clothing and what to pack in your day bag before departing on a day hike. The route depends upon the weather but is generally between 5-6 hours in lower to medium level terrain. During this walk you will have the opportunity to discuss your clothing and day bag in more detail and have the opportunity to learn about the health and safety that goes into a challenge prior to your departure and during your trip.
In the later afternoon you will have some more seminars and learn about some basic campcraft skills, camp administration, packing advice, hygiene cooking in the outdoors and about teamwork and supporting others whilst on your challenge.
You will also learn about basic navigation, pre challenge fitness training, health and wellbeing, walking techniques and have the opportunity to ask your instructors all the questions you may have. You will return to base, have the opportunity to change and ask any final questions before you depart.
