Ten Tors First Camp 2023

Last weekend was our first camp as part of the 2023 Ten Tors training.

This year, thanks to our incredible outdoor education fundraising team, the participants training for the Ten Tors Challenge were treated to an overnight camp and adventure packed day at Backwater Adventure, on the Colehayes Estate near Haytor. The participants put into practice all they had learnt on the previous training and were supported on their first steps to self sufficiency by an incredible bunch of volunteers. 

On Saturday the groups walked across the moor, before setting up their tents and cooking their evening meal. After an 'iffy' night's sleep at best for some, it was up and about to make breakfast and explore all that Backwater Adventure had to offer.

The students said it was great to build teamwork, the challenges helped them communicate and most importantly, they had loads of fun! Andy and his team were encouraging and helpful to all of our students to ensure they got the most out of the day.

All of the trainees are doing an amazing job so far this year. Bring on the event!
