Expedition Challenge

17 May 2009

This weekend, three Scouts took part in the Expedition Challenge. On the Saturday, the group planned and walked a route across Cannock Chase of about 11 km. This involved all Scouts carrying all the equipment they required for the weekend, including food, cookers and tents. The weather for the day was constantly changing, with sun mixed with occasional rain showers. All were back on site by 5pm.

On the Sunday there was a shorter walk that was designed to challenge and improve the navigation skills of the Scouts. The rain today was mostly constant, but the group pushed on and eventually reached the end point of the Cannock Chase visitor centre about 2pm, after setting off just after 10am.
