As you are no doubt aware, we have recently completed a very successful expedition to Costa Rica. It is therefore now time to begin preparing for a new expedition to take place in 2018. Our destinations this time will be Cambodia and Vietnam. We are using the same provider, Outlook Expeditions (https://outlookexpeditions.com/).
We have developed a good relationship with Outlook over the past few years; they are highly organised and also very aware of how to keep students safe whilst travelling abroad. All expeditions are accompanied by Bennett staff as well as Outlook leaders. We normally send two groups with approximately twelve to fifteen students in each group. The students who participate in these expeditions gain a huge amount in terms of confidence, initiative, resilience and team work.
The expedition is around three weeks in length and takes place at the end of the summer term. Students have two years to prepare and are encouraged to fund raise for their costs and also in order to contribute to a social project which they will be working on. There is also usually a challenge for the students, such as a hike or other activity, plus some well-earned rest and relaxation! The expedition is available to students currently in Year 10, 11 or 12.
