Saturday 1st July saw the Navigators Group set out on their expedition from Kingsley Pond car park. They spent the day finding their way to Selborne on paths and tracks through fields and woodland. They strayed off their route on more than one occasion but, with a little help from their supervisors who'd made sure that they didn't stray too far, they reached their planned destination in good time to set up camp and cook their dinner.

They were very fortunate with the weather which was dry and sunny all day. A little rain around 6am on Sunday morning dampened the tents but not the spirits and was all gone by the time the group got up at 7.15. They did remarkably well to have breakfast cooked and eaten and tents packed up by 8.35 — ¾ hour earlier than planned! They'll have to show some of the DofE groups how it's done!

After a challenging but enjoyable day and lots of fun on an overnight camp they were collected by parents and taken home — almost certainly for a well-earned shower. All that remains is for the group to give a presentation about their venture and to report on the litter study they undertook along the way — the bin bag wasn't full but sadly there was litter to be found. Once that's done they will receive their certificates.
