Silver D of E Qualifier Expedition

   |   By

Congratulations to both of our groups who successfully completed their D of E expeditions in the New Forest this weekend. Walking around 60km over the 3 days, the teams also demonstrated teamwork, navigation skills and excellent camp craft.

We had excellent weather and both teams actually looked like they were having fun most of the time!!!

A few photos are below.

It was more hard for the supervisors who spent the weekend visiting local cafes, eating ice cream and making new friends!!

And one team had so much energy at the end they decided some slow motion action shots were required!
