Duke of Edinburgh Award Training Expedit

Sun, rain and plenty of adventures at the weekend in the New Forest on the DofE training expedition! Five teams of year 10s spent two days walking and camping – most got stuck in bogs, got a bit lost (but found themselves again) and saw some wildlife along the way. Saturday evening at the campsite was full of amazing camp cooking, playing volleyball with a football and much more. Heavy rain overnight kept everyone awake but everyone survived their experience and is much better prepared for the expedition to come in September. Well done to the 31 year 10s who spent the weekend out in the wilds, and a big thank you to our team of volunteer leaders for making it all happen.
