Duke of Edinburgh's Award Practice ExpeditionsIt's a wrap for 2022!

Posted: Fri 21 Oct 2022

Phew! That's our expedition season over for 2022. This year we've put on a total of 4 practice expeditions and 2 qualifying expeditions, ranging from Attadale in the Northwest all the way to Linn of Dee on Deeside.

We've spent 14 nights out camping, covered just over 300 miles on foot, and looked after a total of 41 participants who are now well underway with their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards. We managed roughly half of the expeditions using public transport. For many this was their first time out hillwalking and wild camping. We are so proud of everyone.

Huge thanks to our volunteers Luke, Helen, George, Alison, Karl, Anne, Fiona & Rhona and our staff Meirion & Nele who have done so much hard work to make this all possible. Also to Merkinch Community Centre, the Cameron Youth Centre and Jack's Car Hire who have given us so much support.
