We can run evening sessions in your school or center, depending on where you are based, or we can provide intensive 1 day or 2 days training programmes to include a night out if you wish. This can cover; camp craft, navigation, emergency procedures, food & cooking, environmental issues, elements of “Leave No Trace”, route cards, first aid, teamwork, etc.

Advice and ideas on areas for routes, route cards and aims can be provided. We have a supply of tents and stoves that are supplied free of charge. At the end of any training we will give advice and feedback on “where do I go from here” ?

GoVenture will help with filling in all the paperwork i.e.green forms and registering this with the panels for the area that we will be in.
