    Participant Evaluation Form

to encourage a spirit of adventure and discovery, in addition to achieving an advanced level of self-reliance and confidence, discovering one’s self and one’s environment while working in a group.

Adventurous Journeys are implemented as outdoor field camps:

  • Scouting Journeys: aims at long hikes and scouting with a modest level of programmed activities.
  • Research and exploration: aims at exploration, hiking comprises a modest level of this activity whilst programmed activities comprise the bulk of it (the study of ruins ...etc.)
  • These journeys can also be implemented as indoor camps in schools, where a school supervisor trained by the Award Office is present in addition to civilian and military trainers.
