Adventure is the unusual experience which comes from activities full of courage, excitement and joy.
On the 25th of November 2016, the year 10 students of Day Waterman College, Abeokuta undertook their Practice Adventurous Journey which was a 10km expedition from their camp site to and from Magbagbeodun Village.
The participants were divided into several groups and each one of them played a vital role in the overall success of their group exhibiting qualities like team work, perseverance and communication.
Fatigue was a major challenge some of the participants encountered, but it didn’t alter the whole experience from being an exciting and eventful one.
According to a report presented by one of the participants ’’It was an unexpected, but rather interesting experience, the reason being that we walked ten thousand metres! I can personally testify that this activity has taught me about social interaction. We had a motivator who encouraged us through the ups and downs, and made sure we didn’t give up. Being a leader, I had to come up with different problem solving ideas for my group members and put their needs before mine. We had a great time and we look forward to undertaking our final Adventurous Journey’’.
The expedition was highly beneficial to both the participants and their Award Leaders as it encouraged them to strive for success regardless of the inconveniences or situations presented to them.
