The Venture Award is an achievement award scheme aimed at children in year 7 and year 8 to develop their learning both inside and outside the classroom.
A wonderful opportunity for young people to attend a one-night, two day event with key members of our BXM Expeditions instructor team. This is a first-hand opportunity for students to get involved and take their first steps in trying something new. We created The Venture Award to bridge the gap between The Duke of Edinburgh’s and year 6 residential trips.
On what may well be their first major outside adventure, students will learn new skills, help others, work together as a team and try new activities.
How it works
Our experienced instructors have created an in-depth programme to introduce key outdoor skills and values to young people. The programme consists of learning about navigation, creating and using a map along with learning how to trust each other and manage risk.
The entire year group will be led up Snowdon by our experienced DofE instructors whilst being taught about the geography and geology of a real mountain range.
Our skilled and qualified staff will differentiate the learning and walking to ensure each individual reaches their full potential.
We are able to cater for disabled students on this trip.
This is a unique expedition which mixes an unforgettable experience with education.
