The venturer induction training is complete and very early this morning our teams departed for the first stage of their adventure!
The groups all successfully completed their practice jungle trek while the blue sky and sunshine at the training ground continued, meaning that assessing a swimming area and cooling off in the river were a welcome relief for all. The six teams are now travelling across Sabah to their communities, environmental and trek or dive sites where they will spend the next 19 days. Here are the first project groups, where they are going and what they will be doing.
