More stuff to know before your trip....

-The cancellation policies on these trips vary and are determined by the outfitter/camp running the trip.
-Don't forget to download and print out your assessor's report prior to your trip so that you can get it signed! If you need help doing this, call 204-988-3016
-There will be no Duke of Ed Staff on these trips. They are run by the qualified staff of the outfitter or camp. 
-After your trip, you will need to submit your assessor's report AND an Adventurous Journey Report. See below for resources on how to do this.

Adventurous Journey Write Up Resources?

What do you need in an adventurous journey write up:
- an outline of your practice journey
- a day by day explanation of what you did on your qualifying trip
- details about what you learned 
- what you liked or didn't like 
- what you would do differently if you were to do the trip again
- who went with you on the trip
- how far you traveled each day and the weather conditions each day
- any changes to your original trip plan and why you chose to make those changes

You must also include 4 items with your write up:

1. a map with the route you traveled by non-motorized transportation (the time in the car to get to your starting point does not count)
2. a menu of what you ate for each meal and snacks
3. a personal equipment list - what did you personally take with you (clothing, sleeping bag, etc)
4. a group equipment list - what equipment did you use as a group
Questions you can answer in your report:
1. What training did you have towards your qualifying journey? 
2. How did your practice journey prepare you for your qualifying journey? How did your qualifying journey challenge you?
3. Why did you choose to make this journey?
4. When did you take the trip?
5. Where did you go? Give exact locations, trails, describe terrain, etc.
6. How did you travel? Method of travel from actual start of journey to completion - canoe, hike, snowshoe, ski, etc. (not the time spent in a vehicle to get to the location) 
7. Who went with you? 
8. What did you experience? What did you learn? What was your biggest success?  
9. What would you do differently?  What insights would you pass on to anyone else doing this journey?
