Adventurous Journey Ideas 

Here you will find a list of different ways you can start, continue, and work towards completing your Adventurous Journey. Standard Adventurous Journey requirements need to be met and can be found here.  All accommodations and plans should be discussed and approved by your Award Leader before undertaking your Journey. 


Adventurous Journey Prep

Get your team together (4-8 peers) and keep in touch with them virtually so you can start your preliminary training, begin researching, and planning your trip. There are many resources available online with activities to develop your navigation, first aid, environmental awareness, and camp craft skills that you can do at home. Start your prep by checking out some of  Parks Canada camping basics.

Urban Exploration

An Exploration must involved pre-journey research into the topic, an on-site study during the Journey, and a report on your findings. Find a team, brain storm your ideas, and speak to your Award Leader to find out more about planning your Urban Exploration.
