Chief Scouts Platinum Award Expedition May 2011

posted 22 May 2011, 13:26 by Kinsbourne Explorer Scouts
Our Explorers did brilliantly on their first expedition with KES. Navigating around Buckinghamshire, carrying heavy bags full of cordon-bleu food and make up (and that was just the boys), they walked all day and arrive at 5ish to pitch camp. They made a fantastic camp – tents pitched, pesto pasta and couscous on the menu and a great campfire courtesy of Will and Mike. No sleep whatsoever and soaking wet clothes, due to the torrential downpour that night, however nothing phased them (even getting lost on the way back from the bathroom in the dark). They were up the next morning ready for the final loop of the hike. Great fun was had by all.

Emma sums it up "I found the weekend walking great as it challenged me in many ways especially having to carry all my luggage around with me each day. I enjoyed the walk and working together as a team. Most of all I enjoyed making the close friendship within the group during the weekend"
