Your Expedition

On Saturday you'll be dropped off with your hike team at the start of your planned route at around 10:30. Having orientated yourself you'll set off on your expedition.

After an hour or two you'll be able to find a nice spot for lunch as a team and watch the world go by before setting off on a visit to a local point of interest.

Our leader team will meet you across the day to make sure everything is ok, top up your water if you need it and make sure you're on the right path.

At the end of the day, you'll walk in to Ford campsite (or be bused if your chosen route is a little further afield), pitch your tents and enjoy an expedition evening meal. We'll then spend the evening playing some games or having a fire.

On Sunday we'll have our expedition breakfast and then pack up. Our estimated time of arrival back at St. Andrews Church is about 1.00pm, although we'll aim to message as we leave site.
