Here is a short (90-second) video from our just-completed Qualifying Journey, the second “Adventurous Journey” taken for each level of the International Award. These are Bronze- and Silver-level students undertaking a two- or three-day backpacking adventure depending on their Award levels. We left Leysin on foot, then hiked completely around the prominent peaks above Leysin for what we call Circling the Towers (Tour d’Aï, Tour de Mayen, Tour de Famelon), returning to Leysin on foot. Along the way the students had a short off-trail hiking adventure, which for some was the highlight of their journey (along with sliding down a snowfield).
More photos from both the Practice and the Qualifying Journeys this May can be viewed here.
