Further details of the first training weekend will
be available soon, but I need confirmations from those of you that are
definately attending so we can book places…please email me back by
20th October, otherwise I will assume you are not available. The cost
for U18 is £11.50 per night. The cost of the food for this weekend will
be met by the expedition budget but you will be cooking it! You will
need to bring any snacks, special treats for leaders etc. but the main
meals we will provide. You will need to bring clothing and boots for
hill walking, together with normal personal kit.
Arrive at Kettlewell for about 7pm Friday – share some of the research projects with the team and eat!
morning – do a session about expectations of each other after
breakfast. What can we as a leader team expect from you as members, and
what can you as members expect from the leader team. We will also do a
session on personal equipment to recap and clarify for the expedition…
afternoon – horse trek from a local stable – cost is £12 for the hour
trek. This is to get you used to horses if you have not been on one,
and to share experience if you have with others in the team.
Saturday evening – fundraising, some fun team games and share further research projects.
– personal equipment for the expedition, hill walk in the area planned
by the team, then back to the hostel for a question and answer session.
Depart by 4pm from Kettlewell.
