Gold DofE Expedition

17 girls gain their Gold wild camping in the Lakes....



 17 girls from Year 12 set off in early July to complete their Gold Qualifier expedition- the final part of the journey.

After a lovely evening meal in a local pub the three groups were ready the following morning to have their pre-expedition meetings wit

h their assessors: Dave and Chris. They walked in the North-Eastern area of the Lakes and contended with four long days over mountainous and unfamiliar ground. They achieved two consecutive wild camps at Grisedale Tarn and Angle Tarn, before coming off the mountain on the final day to finish at Pooley Bridge. All the groups were amazing showing an impressive array of skills and team work. They deserve the most sincere congratulations on achieving their Gold.
