The trip is over February half term in 2016 and will be leaving in the evening of the 12th February and will be returning on the 20th. The aim is to take 20 explorers from Derbyshire and 20 explorers from Lincolnshire, so this trip will be a great opportunity to meet lots of new friends within scouting. Our District has been allocated one place on the trip.
Activities may include skiing or snowboarding, igloo building, hiking, curling, ice skating and a Swiss fondue evening.
