Training for Gold!

Tuesday, 8 May, 2018

From Friday 27 April to Tuesday 1May, the first Gold Practice Expedition took place in the Odenwald. A group of four boys hiked for four days, covering approximately 20 kilometres per day, carrying 18-kilogram packs. They displayed outstanding team-work and motivation. The fitness level was exceptional and they had very few difficulties with navigation.

This experience truly brought 'outdoor learning' to life.   The lack of WiFi and the feeling of self-sufficiency was a well-earned break (and an opportunity to disconnect) after their examinations.  The boys represented BBIS proudly and contributed to the training of a group of ten future Wild Country assessors from Stuttgart, Duisburg and Elmshorm.

Congratulations - Jan, Alexis, Tim and Konrad.
