We conduct thorough Risk Assessments of all routes prior to a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award adventurous journey. All our supervisors have your child’s welfare as their primary concern. Hand picked for their empathy and compassion as much as their outdoor skills, our supervisors all have Working With Children Clearance, Outdoor Recreation skills and First Aid qualifications.
At least one supervisor on every Adventurous Journey will have thorough, recent knowledge of the route. They will have a satellite phone and Spot tracker (so you can follow their journey online via GPS and we can track it from HQ). If there are two supervisors they will be in constant two-way radio contact with each other to instantly communicate any issues on the track. Your children are in safe hands.
There is a dedicated Program Coordinator for every Adventurous Journey who is on call 24 hours a day for the supervisor. They monitor weather and track the group to ensure they are walking as scheduled.
