Scouts Expedition Challenge

26 April 2015

This weekend, Scouts completed their Expedition Challenge on Cannock Chase. They were dropped off on the Coppice Hill car park in Brocton and walked to Beaudesert Scout Camp via the Marquis Drive visitor centre. Scouts were carrying all their kit, including tents, sleeping bags, cookers and food for the whole weekend. They were walking on their own, responsible for their own navigation using OS Maps.

Scouts were greeted into the campsite on the evening by rain, however this didn’t deter them from setting up their tents and cooking their dinner on Trangia stoves. The next morning, they were ready to go again, walking through the remains of Beaudesert Hall back to the visitor centre.
