Urban Expedition

Welcome to Explorers' Urban Expedition for 2022!

Thursday 11th August 2022 - Friday 12th August 2022

Developed by our young people for our young people. Urban Adventure has been created by our explorers to challenge what they do and how they do it. It's about: getting out, trying something new and working together as a collective youth. This expedition will take our explorers from Washington to York by only using urban transport. We'll end our expedition at a lovely rural campsite at the Snowball Plantation.
