When most people think of adventure training, they think of D of E, or the Duke of Edinburgh award. The D of E scheme is the world’s leading youth achievement award, with over 438000 young people currently doing their award in the UK.
The middle of October saw cadets from 216 Squadron travel to the Wyre Forest to complete their qualifying expedition for their Bronze level award.
Two groups undertook a 2 day expedition, walking through the countryside for 6 hours a day. They have to carry all their own equipment including all food, tents and camping gear without any outside assistance.
The expedition was a success with both groups meeting the criteria to complete their expedition stage of their bronze awards.
