Report on 2017 weekends:
This year’s course saw a total of 22 Scouts and 7 Explorers out n the Cotswolds.
The Explorers began with a training weekend in early March in Prestbury. Later in the month they joined with the Scouts for a practice expedition based around Eastcombe. Then in April they completed their assessed expedition starting at Edge, camping at Cranham and ending at Cowley. They completed both their DofE Bronze and CS Platinum expeditions.
The Scouts did just two weekends firstly at Eastcombe and then on the second weekend hiking to Cranham to camp and also ending at Cowley. The Scouts did not have to carry their tents but just walked with day kit. They all completed their Expedition Challenge badge.
Everyone also completed one of the stages of the Navigator badge.
