Expedition Details:
We are aiming to walk a minimum of 8km and expect to be walking/learning 3-4hrs. 
On occasions, we will be walking along the road and must have all hikers listen and following instructions exactly.

I would like them to have a compass of their own.  The ideal situation would be for each hiker to have their own map as well but it would be ok if they shared in pairs.

They need a small backpack with food and drink.  Water, banana, bread, pasta, or anything else with lots of carbs will be fine.
We will NOT be hiking with a full rucksack with all our camping gear and food.  That will be done during the Guide class.

I recommend that they buy a Base layer (or wicker) to remove the sweat from on their skin.
Apart from that it is their usual waterproof jackets and trousers
We will be passing through fields of grazing cattle.  If anyone is terrified of cows, please let us know BEFORE we set off on the expedition.

Weather:
Unknown

Teaching Outcomes:
We will be learning navigation skills along the way and will solidify all that we learnt on our return on Saturday evening.  We will also plan Sundays route based on our Sabbath experience.  If we have time and light on Friday, we will review Sabbaths walk. 

Our expectation is that most of the group should be familiar with basic navigation at the end of the weekend.
Our plan is for the kids to lead the navigation on Sunday.  If Sabbath was a success then Sunday will tell.
