Operation Triangle – Night Hike

Congratulations to 4 Explorers from Drake Explorer Unit who came 4th in the Operation Triangle Night Hike on Saturday 21st / Sunday 22nd November.

Operation Triangle is a night exercise for teams of 4 Explorer Scouts. The exercise involves hiking approximately 18 miles across country (longer if they get lost!). Teams will walk along the course as directed, reporting at the various incident and checkpoints designed to test teamwork, scouting skills and navigation.

If you are interested in getting involved next year, you can find out all the details on the Kent Explorer Website.
