Gold DofE Practice Expedition

Published by Churcher's College on Tuesday 14th of November 2023

Known to offer a more isolated and wilder hiking experience, the Rhinog mountains delivered challenging terrain for Lower Sixth students on their Gold DofE Practice Expedition in October.


 This lesser-visited area of the Snowdonia National Park proved navigationally tricky as some of the paths were hidden in dense undergrowth and the ground was boggy following recent rain.


Although progress was slow, all seven teams persevered and successfully completed the 4-day 4-night expedition. Well done!
