Four Cadets have recently completed the expedition section and seven Cadets completed an expedition practice towards their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.
The expedition lasted two days, over the weekend of 5th and 6th October, with the Cadets embarking over the terrain of Charnwood Forest. The cadets had to demonstrate a number of skills including map reading, sound camp craft, observe the country code, effective use of their kit and they also had to demonstrate an awareness of their surroundings as part of their expedition project.
Cadets were said to enjoy the challenge of the expedition and now look forward to either embarking on the next Silver Level or finally completing the actual Bronze expedition.
For two of the cadets, the expedition section, was the final piece of the jigsaw and have now completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.
