Some Past Events for Students

World Challenge Training Expedition
Snowdonia, Wales October 18th-20th

During the weekend of October 18th-20th, students involved in World Challenge had their training expedition weekend in preparation for Zambia 2020. The camping experience for Challengers encouraged team bonding and development of the essential practical skills for expedition life and youth work abroad. Students were engaged in safety scenarios, cooking and trekking activities in the Snowdonia region. The team was incredible both physically and mentally while they climbed and summited Mount Snowdon in torrential rain and hail.  CHA was the only team out of 3 that were able to achieve this! Well done to all of you! DAA
