DofE expeditionBronze DofE expeditions were postponed this year by the snow in March, however the LV girls have all now successfully completed their delayed Bronze Practice Expeditions in partnership with Wild Country Consultants over two weekends in April.

On the first day of the expedition the girls were intensively trained in navigation and expedition skills by staff from Wild Country who accompanied each team. On the second day of the expedition, the girls were able to put the skills they have learnt into practice and all the teams navigated (eventually!) to be picked up by the minibuses in Avebury. The girls did very well and worked hard to improve their map-reading skills while dealing with sunshine, rain and thunderstorms. Each team faced a steep learning curve and now have a chance to show the assessors everything they have learnt on the Final Expedition in June.
