Mar 13 - Group Sets Off This Weekend For Duke Of Edinburgh Gold And Silver Award

This coming weekend, from the 16th to 18th March, a group of 29 participants who are undertaking the Gold and Silver Award, will travel to Spain to carry out another practice camp for the Adventurous Journey Section of their programmes.

The group is a combined group of 15 Gold and 10 Silver participants from the Open Award Centre and four Silver participants from Prior Park School.

The participants will be travelling to the Parque Natural Sierra De Grazalema located near Ronda. On this practice camp the participants shall be undertaking hikes in the area of Cortes de la Frontera, Jimera de Libar, Montejaque and Benaojan. The Silver participants will hike approximately 16 kilometres each day and the Golds about 20 kilometres so that they get an idea of the physical demands of undertaking their Qualifying Adventurous Journey. The hikes will also give them the opportunity to practise their navigation skills as well as learning the value of teamwork.

The participants, whose ages range from 16 to 18, will be self-sufficient during the venture, carrying all their equipment and food requirements, and will be spending both nights under canvas. Their activities over the weekend will take them through some of the more picturesque areas of the Sierra, which can only be reached on foot.

The young people will be supervised by experienced leaders throughout the trip.

The Qualifying Adventurous Journeys take place in July for all participants with the only difference being the actual location. Whereas the Gold group travel to the Cévennes National Park in France the Silver group travel to Gredos Centre near Avila in Spain.

The Award would like to thank Bland Limited and Toyota Stockholdings Limited for their continued support with the transportation requirements without which many of the ventures would not be possible.

For further information on the venture or, about the Award as a whole, please contact the Director, Michael Pizzarello on 20051971 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Award is a challenge, for everyone! So, get involved you will not regret it!
