Educational Treks are intense, life changing experiences for the young people who are fortunate enough to be part of one.
Although varying in duration, Educational Treks are usually longer programs than normal school camps often lasting 4 to 6 weeks in total. The treks are aimed at teenagers between 14 and 17 years and often have the most impact on teens in the life changing stage between 15 and 16 years.
Educational Treks take the form of a journey which the learners complete on their own steam by a combination of hiking, biking and canoeing. Groups are accompanied by two adults who look after safety and general welfare, but the learners look after themselves by cooking, cleaning, washing clothes and maintaining equipment.
The route is kept off the beaten track and in the great, healthy outdoors as much as possible. There is a support team available in case of emergency.
All adults who have ever accompanied a group of young people on an educational trek will confirm that its most likely the most profound and life-shaping experience any young person could ask for.
Having an educational trek for the learners at your school is a committing task, but a rewarding experience.
Venture Forth has substantial experience in this field and we would love to share it with you and be part of your Educational Trek. We can provide all the arrangements, infrastructure and logistics to make it happen for your school.
