This weekend the Silver International Award candidates undertook a 3 day expedition in the Jura mountains near Neuchatel. They had planned a great route through some very impressive scenery, including the Creux du Van and gorges de l’Areuse. The group were blessed with clear days but had to endure one very wet night, which provided a real test to their campcraft skills. Not only did they overcome this, but they even managed to produce a great fondue! Over the 3 days there was a clear improvement in everyone’s ability to navigate, camp and look after themselves in a changing environment. All of the students left the weekend with a very positive outlook and lots of enthusiasm for the final assessment in 3 weeks time. Well done!
