About the Event
UPDATE - WE HAVE OPENED THIS TRIP TO YEAR 11 CADETS
Year 11-13 cadets are invited to apply to attend this year's Pennines expedition.
This is a unique opportunity for cadets to experience the best of the UK's mountain walking. Over the course of a week, cadets will walk up to 100 miles, carrying all they need. Cadets will camp for much of the week, including one "wild" camp. This trip tends to be one of the most memorable, with a great sense of camaraderie amongst the group.
Physical fitness is clearly important. If you are not confident that you will be able to undertake a week of arduous walking, please speak to Mr Marshall at SGS, or Miss Geraghty at Nonsuch before booking a place.
There are some important kit requirements for this trip. The vast majority of which can be supplied by the CCF. We will issue a kit list earlier than usual so cadets/parents can source any additional equipment needed.
Those entitled to pupil premium should book using the coupon code previously provided or contact us for further details.
Terms of Booking
We regard payment of the camp fee as a firm commitment to attend camp and will not routinely offer refunds, except in cases of obvious emergency, such as illness. We have many cadets applying for a limited number of places, and in the past have had withdrawals because cadets and/or parents have changed their minds, have subsequently booked other engagements, or decided that exam revision has become too urgent. None of these reasons merit refunds. We would urge parents and cadets to think carefully before applying for a place on camp
Cadets and parents are also acknowledging by applying that they are physically fit to undertake the full demands of camp and that they will inform us if there are health issues which arise subsequent to an application. Failure to do this may result in future camp applications being rejected, as we have to be able to run camps on the basis of full information about cadets' health being provided.
