Duke of Edinburgh July Update

i Sep 5th No Comments by

Congratulations to our hardy team of 12 trainees who took to the Lake District in July and completed their assessed expedition in the Eskdale Valley.

All twelve Bronze and Silver trainees passed their expedition, battling through rain and muddy bridleways to arrive at Wasdale Head to finish. The trainees all undertook walks in rainy weather, through bogs of mud to make it to the end over the three-day expedition.

For the Bronze group, the walk proved to challenge their skills in advanced terrain. The Silver Group put their experience to the test as they walked along the Walna Scar Road and around Wasdale Head, the base camp for Sca Fell. Both groups focused their project on outdoor activities in the Lake District and visited the Outward Bound centre to conduct some research and be inspired by the adventures undertaken from there.

Sore feet aside, all trainees were felt accomplished by the end, to have undergone such a physical and emotional challenge and succeeded.
