Attendees must make their own way to and from the campsite on Exmoor.
Cost: £65 per person.
Deposit of £25 per person is required with booking. Closing date for bookings 1/06/2019.

The event requires teams of between 4 and 8 (for both girls and adults). There is no limit to the number of teams a unit can enter. If you haven’t got enough numbers to make up a team of four you may join up with members of another unit in your local area.
Teams arrive on Friday evening and set up camp, you will need to bring your own tents. Each team will receive a map of the area with 10 checkpoints marked on it. Over the course of the evening you can plan your route completing a route card and submitting it to the coordinators.
On Saturday teams have a staggered start and complete their routes. At each checkpoint there will be a controller who will check the team, let the main base know, provide water etc and ensure that the groups will make it back on time. Once you have completed all 10 you return to base and check in. The evening will be spent relaxing and enjoying a campfire and hopefully sleeping.
On Sunday each group will be given a map with a series of checkpoints on. Each checkpoint has a points value. You must decide if you will collect lots of little checkpoints with low points or go further afield to gain higher points value. There will be a time deadline for this. If teams are late they will be deducted points. Sunday will finish with lunch while points are added up and then strike camp and home.
Leaders do not need to hold a going away or walking qualification however you will need to look after your group. Most of Exmoor is Level 1 terrain and the checkpoint controller on the one section of Level 2 terrain will be a suitably qualified person.
First aid cover will be provided by the central team.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
