A new year means a new Duke of Edinburgh’s award expedition season coming up.

This year there’ll be 2 silver and 1 bronze teams out hiking, alongside a team of Scouts doing their chief Scout’s gold award hike. Plenty of sweaty feet to look forward to!

Cold conclusion


To finish off Morgan’s Yorkshire challenge gold badge, he needed to camp in December. The Yorkshire challenge badges need Scouts to camp during every month of the year (and also undertake a range of challenges).

Morgan & Paul took the opportunity of camping while also volunteering at the North Yorkshire moors railway, where Morgan does his Duke of Edinburgh award volunteering.

D of E bronze take 2

Our second Duke of Edinburgh’s bronze award team completed their expedition last weekend.

The team had glorious sunshine on Saturday to hike from Spofforth castle to Bramhope camp site. But on Sunday the heavens opened, although fortunately subsided to occasional showers, as they walked via Armscliff crag to Kirkby Overblow.

Well done.
