Senior cadets go wild camping in Snowdonia on their DofE practice

COVID took opportunities away from some of our older cadets to experience their Gold Duke  of Edinburgh expeditions before they left for University. Those left have finally had the opportunity of the unique team-based challenge of multiple unaccompanied Silver expeditions in Derbyshire 2021 and Shropshire 2022. To go one step further 1368 just did a Gold practice expedition in Snowdonia, July 2022; Walking in remote environments with wild-country navigation (no footpaths) topped off with a wild camp next to a lake (TOPL approved). A fantastic opportunity to better equip 1368 cadets to finalize their own 4 day routes in "Wild Country" later in the year.

Following this one, a few have been lobbying for The Fens.
