Wild Country Expedition Training
As you are aware we are running a 5 day training course on Dartmoor from October 24 to 28 (half term). To date we have received very few applications from Scouts in GLSW - 2 to be precise. Most of the spaces to date have been taken up by Senior Section Guides from Croydon and West Wickham.
We have space for a few more participants, and so please make this opportunity known through the usual channels as quickly as possible. It is at the training course that we start to plan the teams for the practice expedition (April 2016) and the qualifying expedition (July/August), and we will not be in a position to provide a second course between October and April for anyone who suddenly thinks they would like to take part !
Also, I have been looking at cost comparisons between the GLSW course/expeditions and those delivered by AAP's (Approved Activity Providers), and we work out about half the cost. I have also noticed that Reigate College charge £450 for the total package against £315 for GLSW so I know we are really good value for money.
If you require any further information please let me know.
