Skill 2: Camping/Backpacking
I love the outdoors so when it comes to camping and hiking, I would love to do this at camp. I have completed my silver DofE which involves 2, 3 and 4 days hikes. Having hiked the Cairngorms, across the Trossachs, up Clachnaben and Ben Nevis, I think it’s fair to say that I am confident in hiking and backpacking. On these trips, I would regularly camp and know the risks and safety precautions needed when planning for these trips, such as packing aid kits, layers, compass, correct footwear etc.
