The expedition event is open to Scouts from the age of 12, with an option for Explorers to participate. Scouts and Explores walk carrying all they need for the three-day expedition.
Scouts and Explorers navigate the entire route, camp and cook unaided by Troop or Unit leaders, with the only support of Six Summits Expedition Leaders. As with Training, teams on challenges will be completed along the route and complete any training badges not already earned.
Prior To The Weekend
Before the event, participants will need to complete a series of training hikes, navigation exercises. Scouts and Explorers should complete a training hike with all the equipment and food they would for Six Summits weekend.
Throughout the weekend, the teams on this challenge will navigate through checkpoints, pitch their own tents and cook their own meals. Scouts and Explorers need to complete this unaided and unsupported by young people’s leaders as part of the challenge.
