Anyone can take part in the Award regardless of ability as it should be a personal challenge.
Some common myths . . .
None of the above are true!
It only involves walking though muddy fields with a heavy rucksack on your back
There is certainly occasions when students walk through muddy fields (if the weather has been wet) but the Expedition section is only one quarter of the Bronze Award.
We always attempt to keep costs down. For example, students are loaned tents, stoves and rucksacks for their expeditions. Potentially you could be looking at spending a few hundred pounds buying these items yourself.
