A Successful 2016 Expedition Season

posted 1 Dec 2016, 12:19 by Peter Knight
We have had our busiest expedition season in many years - largely due to the decision by Oxfordshire County Council to relinquish their DofE licence and a number of schools subsequently ceasing to run the Award or putting limits on their DofE intake. OXPED CIC has been able to take up the slack and has enabled many young people to complete their Expedition section who otherwise might have struggled to do so.

A total of 175 participants took part in 12 different expeditions - four Bronze, four Silver and four Gold!

Many thanks must go to all the OXPED volunteers who have organised and run our expeditions this year.

We look forward to offering a similar number of expeditions in 2017 - the intial list will be published on this website in the next week.
