Congratulations to John Cummins and Patrick McCormack of the De La Salle Venturer Group (pictured above) who successfully completed this year’s Venturer Explorer Belt that took place in the USA from the 29th of June to the 16th of July.

The basic elements of the Explorer Belt are a 10 day hike, covering 200 km, while living on a limited budget and completing a number of projects along the way. The aim of the Explorer Belt is to get to know a different culture from your own, and the method is to meet people from the country concerned and learn about their way of life, their traditions and customs.

There is a selection of the photos they they took during the event on our Gallery page and there is loads of information about the Explorer Belt
