The Gold expedition was the most challenging D of E experience that I have encountered. After 4 days of walking over bog and hilly terrain I found myself exhausted, however it was worth it for the overwhelming feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction. The weather was quite pleasant and the campsites where we stayed were lovely.
Gold D of E really helped my teamwork skills as we had to support one another within our groups, it also showed me that if you persevere you can overcome tough obstacles. Looking back, I very much enjoyed the experience and would recommend giving D of E a try. (Robert P.)
All the Gold expeditions this summer have been very successful with students rising to the challenges in a positive way. The D of E leaders enjoyed themselves too . (Mrs Winterflood)
