D of E Practice Expedition

Seven of us who were participating for the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award went to Bramley Training Area in Hampshire to practice for our main expedition. We stayed for two nights camping in a field and spent the days hiking and learning key skills for our expedition. This included first aid, navigation and team work. On our hike we planned our own routes and made certain checkpoints. Also we cooked our own food, for example frankfurters and pasta, and ate lots of haribo to keep our morale up! Over all, we had a great time and hope the assessment will be just as enjoyable and fun!
